A House-call Doctor in Fukushima
Eleven years after the 2011 nuclear disaster, Honda Toru, a doctor, moved to Iitate village, a disaster-hit area in Fukushima, determined to live out his life there. After the accident, villagers had been forced to evacuate, but 6 years ago, the order was lifted for much of the village. Since 2022, Toru has been taking care of the residents who have come back to their homes hoping to reclaim their lives and a sense of purpose that the disaster snatched from them. Amid a doctor shortage in the area, Toru is working hard to help villagers live as they want to.
