This is the Fukushima countryside!

Our area (Fukushima City and its environs) was not evacuated during the nuclear crisis, but here is a book about a town that was indeed evacuated.  Hope for the Madei Village I borrowed it from our prefectural library.  It is in English and Japanese.  Heartbreaking little book.
