Watch this haunting footage of a Japanese ghost town abandoned in the wake of Fukushima

Fukushima Japan Tsunami Video

The effects of the disastrous tsunami in Japan that caused a catastrophic failure at the Fukushima nuclear power plant are still being felt to this very day. Recovery efforts began immediately after the plant was hit, but the damage to surrounding areas will take many years to repair. In fact, the nearly 16,000 residents of the town Tomioka, Fukushima, the home of the plant, has been abandoned for over three years. Employing the use of flying drones, HEXa Media, a Japan-based company has returned to the ghost town to explore the ongoing cleanup. It’s a fascinating look at a beautiful city, missing the thousands of families that once called Tomioka home. Take a look at the footage below.
