Inside Fukushima’s Radioactive Ghost Towns

A DAREDEVIL urban explorer has shared haunting images of the abandoned Fukushima earthquake ‘exclusion zone’ after sneaking in to the highly irradiated region. Wearing a gas mask but no other protective clothing, explorer and photographer Keow Wee Loong, 27, visited four of the evacuated towns in Fukushima - Tomioka, Okuma, Namie and Futaba - in June this year with friends Sherena Ng and Koji Hori. Lying completely untouched since March 2011, the city of Fukushima was evacuated suddenly after the east coast of Japan was devastated by a massive earthquake followed by a huge tsunami. Keow’s images give an eerie insight into the panic that followed the disaster and show a city stuck in time as calendars remain on the same date, families' clean washing is half-removed from driers and newspapers forever remain unsold. Videographer / director: Keow Wee Loong Producer: Crystal Chung, Ellie Winstanley Editor: Jack Stevens
