Learning from Fukushima

We welcome university/high-school students,  teachers, professors and researchers. We will arrange visits to nuclear plants, interviews, meetings, as well as permission to enter the exclusion zone in cooperation with local people, municipal governments, TEPCO, JAEA for groups of ten or more participants. Please contact us via our contact form or at tour@real-fukushima.com to request an arrangement.

We are neither anti-nuke nor pro-nuke. We want to carefully look back what happened and is happening in our homeland. We sincerely would like to share our experiences, regrets, lessons and challenges for the future with you.
