» Two market places opend within 20km exclusion zone

Two makeshift stores opened in Tamura’s Miyakoji district on April 6th, whoes evacuation order was lifted on April 1st, as part of a local drive to persuade residents to return to their homes following the end of decontamination work.

It is the first area within the 20-km exclusion zone to be reopened since Fukushima nuclear disaster in 2011.

The stores, opened in prefabricated buildings, were set up with funding from the prefecture and central government subsidies. Staffed by workers from the Tamura Municipal Government, they will sell farm products, daily necessities and other items six days a week.
