The Young in Fukushima city

Fukushima city, November 2012 - Soramame nursery school owned by Sadako MONMA used to be in an highly contaminated district of Fukushima city called Watari. Sadako Monma decontaminated the whole garden by removing the top soil. Even so, the children couldn't go for walks to the mountain or to the river so she found a place in no-contaminated part of the city. 20 kids have evacuated from the prefecture, 3 are left. "People here are weak-willed about taking decisions and acting on them..So in the Watari district and other places where radiation is high, people are living as usual. When neighbors meet, they never talk about radioactivity. They don't want to know what others think. They avoid the subject."
