Remembering Fukushima

In March 2011, an earthquake and tsunami devastated the Fukushima region of Japan and posed a major nuclear threat to the region. Fukushima was responsible for producing a sizable portion of the electricity consumed in northern Japan, including Tokyo. In this Vice Video, photographer Donald Weber travels to Fukushima and documents the devastation caused by the tsunami and subsequent radiation leaks in the region. The first half of the video explores Weber’s experience in Chernobyl. His exploration of Fukushima begins around the 7 minute mark.
