About
Description
The house is situated in Odaka, 15km from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. It offers traditional Japanese rooms. Come and experience the town and the zone. I will take you on a tour into the More evacuation zone(for an extra fee) and show you cultural venues, a nice sushi restaurant, we’ll meet friendly people who once were forced to evacuate. Feel the vibrant atmosphere for yourself! Less
