Japan’s Nuclear Exclusion Zone Shows Few Signs of Life:
What’s most striking about Japan’s nuclear exclusion zone, is there are no people, few cars, no sign of life, aside from the occasional livestock wandering empty roads. While workers of the Fukushima plant are bused in daily, the government has maintained a 12-mile no-go zone around the area for everyone else.
The government has said it will take at least 30 years to decommission the crippled reactors. This nuclear wasteland may not be livable for decades.
