Photo Journal: Family foundations


A family gathers in the town of Naraha, Fukushima Prefecture, spending the New Year there for the first time in five years after the area was evacuated due to the Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant disaster. The town's evacuation order was lifted in September last year. Behind the family are the foundations of their new house, after they took down their old house that had fallen into disrepair while they were living in evacuation. (Mainichi)
