Fukushima Exclusion Zone Photos: Man Sneaks in and Snaps Pictures of Town Untouched by Humans Since 2011

The Fukushima exclusion zone hasn't been looted

Fukushima exclusion zone pictures reveal it has yet to be looted

Keow Wee Loong, a 27 year old Malaysian photographer ignored the long-standing government procedures to get some truly badass photos of the abandoned Fukushima. There are strict government restrictions on the area, to prevent the spread of radiation but Keow Wee figured, “Fuck it”. After the Fukushuma nuclear strike, citizens within an 18 mile radius of the power plant site were evacuated. 6 years later, the exclusion zone is still bordered off and considered a restricted area – only accessible through government clearance.

“It feels like a real-life version of Fallout”

Wearing only a gas mask, Keow Wee decided it’d be a good idea to risk his life for some photos. He didn’t even bother to wear pants, exposing his bare skin to the heightened levels of radiation. We reached out to a handful of scientific organizations for comment on the risk he took in doing so, but received no response. From various online sources, we’ve read that radiation can simply be washed off of bear skin, but breathing it in can have long term health effects. We won’t claim to be experts on the topic, so enjoy these photos from the Fukushima exclusion zone:
