Down the street from my house, about a five minute bicycle ride away, there is temporary housing for evacuees who had been living near the power plant but were forced to leave. This is the housing:
Each apartment was the size of a very small apartment. Considering that all these people come from the countryside where houses are generally quite large, it must be horrible for them to now live in tiny Tokyo-sized rabbit hutch apartment. Plus, the location is pretty crappy, IMO. It’s right next to a busy road.
I walked around and spotted a older woman who was cleaning her apartment. I asked her where she was from. She was very cheerful and said that she was from Namie Town. (A small town near the power plant.) She asked me where I was from. She was a novelty to me, and I was a novelty to her.
I didn’t pry. I think the evacuees deserve their privacy, don’t you think?
Would you like to move from your current location and live here?
