Namie, a fishermen town surrounded by a river and mountains, was severely damaged by earthquake, tsunami and the nuclear meltdown at Fukushima Daiichi when the 3.11 disaster struck the area.  Four years later, Namie remains an empty town abandoned by its residents. Reconstructions are underway to decontaminate the area. However, whether and when Namie residents are able to return to their hometown remain to be seen.
