- Video’s overview

In March 2021, the Tokyo 2020 Olympic torch relay started from J-Village, a symbol of Fukushima’s reconstruction. The video shows Fukushima moving toward reconstruction and its charms.

In areas where evacuation orders were lifted, the living environment has improved so that residents can return. Recovery work is 99% completed. The Soma-Fukushima Road on the Tohoku-Chuo Expressway has opened.

Efforts are underway to improve the brand power of agricultural, forestry and fishery products from Fukushima by thoroughly inspecting them for radioactive substances, aiming for the top position for Good Agricultural Practice (GAP) certification -- proof of product safety and quality. The “Fukushima Innovation Coast Framework,” aimed at creating new industries, is steadily moving forward.

After a decade since the earthquake, a museum conveying the memories of the disaster to future generations was built and structural remains linked to the disaster were kept in place for preservation.

The video conveys “Fukushima Now” which keeps on challenging and moving toward a new future.
