One month ago, we showed an eerie, drone's-eye-view of the radioactive wasteland that is Fukushima, courtesy of the following video clip showcasing the toxic area located just 200 miles away from the venue of the 2020 summer Olympics.
But while the scenery from above was dramatic, what about life on the actual ground? Because just like with Chernobyl, the world may have been eager to move on and leave the wasteland on its own, the empty ghost towns that neighbor ground zero remain stuck in time. This is the "exclusion zone," and it's one of the most radioactive places on Earth.
Inside the zone, chunks are ripped out of buildings, totaled cars lie on the street, and clocks are stopped at the moment the tsunami struck. Nature is slowly taking over the houses and possessions of those who once called this place home.
