omioka is looks like a nuclear wasteland.
The town is on the coast, only 10 km south of Fukushima Daiichi, and it
has yet to be cleared of damage caused by both the Tohoku earthquake and
the subsequent tsunami.
Half-collapsed buildings are surrounded by downed power lines and rubble
deposited by the receding waves. Upended cars lie in piles along the
road, weeds grow out of broken windows. It's interesting how quickly
nature can take back a town when left to its own devices.
3 Years later and nature is starting to take the town back.
