Student Ayumi Kikuchi speaks during a graduation ceremony for Futaba High School, which is set to temporarily close at the end of this academic year, at Iwaki Meisei University in Iwaki, Fukushima Prefecture, on March 1, 2017. The school had been holding classes at third-party locations, as the original buildings are inside the Fukushima nuclear disaster evacuation zone. Futaba High is among five schools in evacuated areas that have stopped accepting new students and will suspend operations at the end of academic 2016. (Mainichi)
