A Malaysian photographer says he snuck into the deserted “exclusion zone” in Fukushima, Japan, to show the aftermath of the earthquake, tsunami, and subsequent nuclear disaster that occurred there on March 11, 2011.
It was the worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl in 1986.
Bangkok resident Keow Wee Loong posted the photos on Facebook, saying that he “snuck through the forest” to avoid the police so he could visit abandoned stores and houses that appear to be frozen in time after locals fled the area following the nuclear disaster that befell the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. 
Keow, wearing a mask but no other protective gear, visited 4 towns in Fukushima – Tomioka, Okuma, Namie and Futaba, – in June of this year. 
“The residents of these three towns in the red exclusion zone left so quickly they didn’t even pack or take anything valuable with them.
If you visit any boutique or shopping mall in these towns, you will see the merchandise exactly where it was since 2011, nothing has been changed or moved.”
A Family Mart store is pictured with goods scattered about the floor, undoubtedly thrown there by the monster 9.0 earthquake. Huge weeds are growing out of cracks in the parking lot. In another photo, clothes have been left in a dryer in a laundromat.
