An abandoned town near Fukushima that has laid empty since the nuclear disaster forced everyone to flee has been uncovered in eerie new footage. More than 200,000 inhabitants within a 20km radius were forced to evacuate Namie, Japan, when an earthquake and tsunami caused a meltdown at Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in 2011. Urban Explorer Bob Thissen visited the previously inaccessible area, with spots previously categorised as ‘uninhabitable’ due to the dangerous levels of radiation. He drove by an eerie electronics store with over £75,000 ($100,000) worth of gaming consoles and goods left inside.
