Fukushima, Town Untouched Since 2011

Fukushima, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News – 15th July, 2016) : People within 18 miles of the land were advised to leave immediately after the Fukushima nuclear catastrophe hit Japan. Five years have passed ever since; the prohibiting zone is still blocked to outcastes.

Though, human wish to discover the mysterious occasionally wins against the particular rules and regulations.

A Malaysian photographer, Keow Wee Loong, 27, decided to disregard the restrictions and illegally entered into Fukushima’s prohibiting zone while evading police patrols and barriers.

Keow Wee told media, “It feels like a real-life version of Fallout”. Prepared with only a gas mask, he didn’t fear to expose his bare skin to the intensity of radiation in order to capture photos of untouched town of Fukushima.
