A Fukushima Farmer Tills His Soil For Radiation

Produced by

Dick calls Japanese farmer Mitsuo Sato, who lived close to the Fukushima Daiichi reactor when it began to meltdown in 2011. We have spoken to him twice now and check back on whether there has been any progress in returning to his farm. He is part of a crew that is decontaminating the soil in his community, and says he might be able to work the soil again by 2015. Hear the previous conversations with Mitsuo in June 2011 and March 2012.
