» Only 27 evacuees return to Miyakoji in Tamura city

Only 27 evacuees from the Miyakoji district in the city of Tamura, Fukushima Prefecture, have returned to their homes since the district’s evacuation advisory was lifted on April 1.

The Tamura Municipal Government had expected 90 residents from 27 families to come back.

The 27 returnees, from 12 families, account for less than 10 percent of the 353 residents in the 112 families there. Miyakoji was part of the 20-km hot zone set up after the nuclear disaster in 2011. It was the first to have its evacuation advisory lifted.
