Travel Blog Indonesia – A man is suspected of having entered a restricted area in Japan’s Fukushima. This area is an area that was closed due to nuclear radiation after the earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan in 2011. It is not surprising that many people are curious about the current condition of Fukushima. Like this man who infiltrated the restricted area without the police knowing.
Until now, the Fukushima area and its surroundings have been deliberately closed from outsiders even though there are many animals roaming the dead city. Although not completely prohibited, anyone can apply for a permit to enter the restricted area. However, the process can take up to 30 days. Previously, there was even a photographer who entered the restricted area of Fukushima to capture the abandoned places after the earthquake that destroyed nuclear power facilities.

Now Keow Wee Long, a Malaysian national photographer (27) has ventured into the forbidden area of Fukushima to capture the current condition of the dead city. Only armed with a makeshift gas mask, Keow Wee Long managed to capture the current condition of Fukushima. Suddenly the photos went viral on social media.
Netizen reactions were mixed. Starting from praising the photographer’s courage to someone who regretted the attitude and actions of the breakthrough without permission. However, Keow Wee Long’s actions are not legally justified, especially since he is a foreign national in Japan.
Keow Wee Long paid no heed to the radiation dangers that were looming. But it looks like he doesn’t move. In order to get exclusive photos of the forbidden area of Fukushima, he dared to bear all risks, including risks that threaten his health.

What’s really interesting is that the location of Fukushima is still exactly the same when it was abandoned. There is not the slightest bit of valuables that shifted and moved places. Unlike Chernobyl, who was clean of valuables and was allegedly looted by irresponsible people. Even when Wee Long looked around several supermarkets, almost everything was still in its place and the shelves were in their original position when they were left.
With conditions that are very sad and scattered, it turns out that the supermarket is often visited by pets that were deliberately abandoned by their owners when the earthquake occurred. Now this city is really a dead city that was abandoned for almost 5 years. Between amazement and sadness, this city is a witness that the management of nuclear power has high risks.
