Shocked Self and the Nuke - From the Perspective of a Tokyo Dweller -

原発附和雷同 ~東京に暮らす私の3.11~

Ishimoto Megumi


On March 11th, 2011 I was shaken.
Next day, Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant exploded. Huge fear caught me.
I wanted to stop the operation of nuclear power plants eagerly.

I wondered all the things I should do is just taking a part in demonstrations and subscribing myself for anti nuclear power policies?
I was not sure why I was against nuclear policies even though I felt I opposed for it.
Why I haven't participated in demos, before?
While my friends have been to the tsunami attacked area many time, I have just stuck to the things around just myself after all.
The time has been passed since then.
A year later, in 2012, I could go to Fukushima at last.
This is the opportunity I've waited for long eagerly.
