Dancers take part in a special recording of a traditional dance in Nihonmatsu, Fukushima Prefecture, on Jan. 14, 2018. The dance, known as "Tsushima no taue odori" (Rice planting dance of Tsushima), has been performed for more than 200 years, but this was the first performance since the disaster at Tokyo Electric Power Co.'s Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant in 2011. The performance art is originally from the Tsushima district in the prefectural town of Namie, but this particular recording took place in the nearby city of Nihonmatsu due to the nuclear evacuation order that is still in place in parts of Namie.
