About this project

Why “Mieruka”?

The “Mieruka” (make it visible) project will make the aftermath of the 2011 Fukushima nuclear accident more visible.

Behind the post-disaster scenes of so-called “reconstruction,” there are attempts to hide the real situation of the nuclear plant and the people who have been affected.

As time passes, less is being said about the impacts of the nuclear disaster, such as the high remaining numbers of evacuees, high rates of thyroid cancer, growing stockpiles of contaminated soil and water, and more.

In real life, the impacts of the accident still continue. Many people are still being affected.

FoE Japan launched this project in 2020, in the lead up to the tenth anniversary, to make the nuclear accident’s impacts more visible and share information internationally.

We cannot let it go unnoticed or be forgotten…
