Photo Journal: Together again

Young people who were classmates until the March 2011 Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant meltdowns pose for a photo celebrating their coming-of-age ceremony on Jan. 2, 2017 in Katsurao, Fukushima Prefecture -- the first such celebration held there since the disaster. Evacuation orders were lifted for most of the village in June last year. The village had 13 young people turning 20 this year, all of who now live elsewhere, and 11 were present for the ceremony. Dressed in kimonos and suits, they enjoyed their reunion with their old classmates. (Mainichi)
