See the Fukushima disaster zone with your own eyes.

On March 11, 2011, the Great East Japan Earthquake happened. It was the most powerful earthquake ever recorded in Japan.

The earthquake triggered a powerful Tsunami that reached a maximum of 40.5 meters and traveled up to 10 km inland. At present, more than 15,000 people are counted as dead and over 2,500 people as still missing. Even worse, we lost control of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

On this tour, we visit the coastal area of Fukushima. We hope you can get a real perspective of the damage caused by the disaster and the effect it had on Fukushima. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and can have an important impact on your life.

【HIGHLIGHTS】
We visit three types of areas along with the coast while explaining the past, present, and future of Fukushima.
• We will visit the area affected by the Tsunami. You will understand how people reacted and a get a sense for
   the area’s past, present, and future.
• We will visit the restricted area where people are not allowed to live, because of the high level of radiation. 
   This will help you better understand the people’s plight of the affected areas.
• We will visit the area where people are trying to rebuild their community. People are trying to bring back
   hope for their future and for their former home. This area may bring you to hope for the future.

亲眼看看福岛灾区。

2011年3月11日,东日本大地震发生了。这是日本有史以来最强烈的地震。

地震引发了强烈的海啸,最大海啸达到40.5米,并向内陆延伸了10公里。目前,有15,000多人被视为死亡,还有2,500多人仍在失踪。更糟的是,我们失去了对福岛第一核电站的控制。

在这次旅行中,我们参观了福岛的沿海地区。我们希望您能真实地了解这场灾难造成的破坏以及它对福岛造成的影响。这是一生一次的机会,可能会对您的生活产生重要影响。

【强调】
在解释福岛的过去,现在和未来的同时,我们沿着海岸参观了三种类型的地区。
•我们将参观受海啸影响的地区。您将了解人们的反应,并了解
该地区的过去,现在和未来。
•由于辐射水平高,我们将参观禁止人员居住的禁区。
这将帮助您更好地了解灾区人民的困境。
•我们将参观人们试图重建社区的地区。人们试图带回
希望他们的未来和他们的故乡。这个领域可能使您对未来充满希望。

자신의 눈으로 후쿠시마 재해 지역을 바라보십시오.

2011 년 3 월 11 일 동일본 대지진이 발생했습니다. 일본 역사상 가장 강력한 지진이었습니다.

지진은 최대 40.5m에 도달하고 내륙으로 10km까지 이동하는 강력한 쓰나미를 촉발했습니다. 현재 15,000 명 이상이 사망하고 2,500 명 이상이 아직 실종 된 것으로 간주됩니다. 설상가상으로 우리는 후쿠시마 제 1 원전의 통제권을 잃었습니다.

이번 투어에서는 후쿠시마 해안 지역을 방문합니다. 재해로 인한 피해와 그것이 후쿠시마에 미친 영향에 대해 실제적인 시각을 얻을 수 있기를 바랍니다. 이것은 일생에 한 번의 기회이며 귀하의 삶에 중요한 영향을 미칠 수 있습니다.

【하이라이트】
후쿠시마의 과거, 현재, 미래를 설명하면서 해안과 함께 3 가지 지역을 방문합니다.
• 쓰나미 피해 지역을 방문합니다. 사람들이 어떻게 반응했는지 이해하고
지역의 과거, 현재, 미래.
• 우리는 높은 수준의 방사선으로 인해 사람들이 살 수없는 제한 구역을 방문 할 것입니다.
이렇게하면 피해 지역에 대한 사람들의 곤경을 더 잘 이해할 수 있습니다.
• 우리는 사람들이 지역 사회를 재건하려는 지역을 방문 할 것입니다. 사람들은 다시 가져 오려고합니다
그들의 미래와 이전 집에 대한 희망. 이 영역은 미래에 대한 희망을 가져올 수 있습니다.

REMARKS

【General】

・All payment is expected before the tour.

・This tour finishes at Iwaki station in Fukushima. If you want to back to Tokyo, you need to take train by yourself. Of course we could help you.​


【Notes on Radiation】
We receive lots of question "Is it safe?".
• During the tour we have Geiger counter and we could know how much radiation we are exposed.
• We estimate that we will be exposed to about "0.001" mSv of radiation by this trip. 
   If you come to Tokyo from New York by plane, you would be exposed to about 0.1-0.2 mSv of radiation (Round trip). 
   This means that the radiation exposure for the tour is about over 100 times smaller than the round-trip flight from New York to Japan.
