No entry (20キロ圏内封鎖)by Zo

From midnight of 22nd of April, within the radius of 20km from Fukushima No.1 Nuclear Power Plant will be closed. I accompanied Mr. K’s family who will go to check their house after more than a month absence and  pick some personal belongings at home. On the way the mountain was looking  springlike and cherry blossom was beautiful. It seemed a very normal daily scene. At the 20km checking point, there were police officers. They made sure that we could only stay for a short while and that we need to have screening of radiation. Cows and horses are released and some pets are left there. Mr. M who came with us picked his two dogs and brought back to the shelter. The screening place has been already closed at 5:00 P.M.  Are we safe?

   22日の午前0時から20km圏内が封鎖になる。その前に1ヶ月以上ぶりに自宅の様子を見、荷物を取りに帰るKさん一家に同行して浪江町に入った。途中、桜が咲き乱れ、春爛漫。全く何事もない日常のようだ。20km地点で、警察の検問があった。短時間のみの滞在と放射能のスクリーニングをすることが条件だった。Kさん一家は生活に必要な最低限の荷物を取った。同行したMさんは愛犬2匹を連れ帰った。帰路、スクリーニング会場は午後5時で閉まっていた。お役所仕事!俺らは安全か?
