Noilly Prattle: Fukushima

Sunday, November 13, 2011


The mention of the iconic "Hiroshima" probably embodies the fear and horror that the world has about nuclear holocausts, just as the haunting photos in the museum embody the fear and horror we have of nuclear radiation. For the first time journalists have been allowed to tour our modern Hiroshima--another town with an island in its name--Fukushima. "Good fortune Island" has become almost as infamous as "Broad Island". Articles in The New York Times as well as The Japan Times ran stories on the tour. But the slide show in the NY Times taken at Fukushima Daiichi tells it best.

The link to the NY Times slideshow doesn't seem to be active. A copy/pste to the URL window works though.
