Glorious Matsukawa Town on the outskirts of Fukushima City.
These swans are visiting for the winter from Russia.
I hope you are enjoying your stay, Little Birdies!
A great view of the mountains
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.
