Guy Sneaks Into Fukushima To Document The Ghost Town Untouched Since 2011

Published 3 years ago

It’s been five years since Japan experienced one of the worst nuclear disasters in history, that turned the city of Fukushima into a ghost town. Five years later, not much has changed since that fateful event. How do we know? Because Keow Wee Loong just brought back a bunch of extremely rare shots from his trip to Fukushima’s exclusion zone.

Equipped only with his camera and a gas mask, Loong snuck into the still-closed exclusion zone and captured these eerie images of a town forever trapped in a single moment in time. Shop shelves still filled with goods and cars left parked next to lifeless houses remind us of a once bustling city and give us the answer to a long pondered question: what would happen if one day humans were to just disappear?
