Inaride Yuko sits outside the home in the Koike 1 camp where she has been living since 2011. Her home, one kilometre from the sea, was destroyed during the tsunami that followed the 11 March 2011 magnitude 9 earthquake which struck 130 km off the coast of Northern Japan causing a massive tsunami that swept across the coast of Northern Honshu damaging the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant and triggering the worst nuclear accident since Chernobyl. The plant was shut down and a 20 km evacuation zone around the plant was declared by the government. Levels of radiation in the evacuation zone remain high. .
