The house is situated in Odaka, 15km from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. It offers traditional Japanese rooms. The radiation level is around 0.12 μSv/h (The evacuation order following the explosion was lifted in 2016). Come and experience the town and the zone. I will take you on a tour into the evacuation zone(for an extra fee) and show you cultural venues, a nice sushi restaurant, we’ll meet friendly people who once were forced to evacuate. Feel the vibrant atmosphere for yourself!

I live in the Odaka ward of Minamisoma City in the Prefecture of Fukushima in Japan, where, in 2011, a forced evacuation took place following the explosion in the nuclear power station soon after the tsunami and earthquake hit the vast area in northeastern Japan. I would like people all over the world to see how things are progressing in the Fukushima evacuation zone in all its complexity. I studied MSc International Politics at Edinburgh University in 2009-10 and worked in Bangladesh as an aid worker in 2011-12. Wishing to become a little light in this area to the world, I named the house "The Lantern House". Come and stay, and let`s talk a lot!
