Reconstruction and Challenges of Odaka District After Lifting the Evacuation Order

T. Nemoto

Odaka District, Minamisoma City, Fukushima Prefecture, is about to mark ten years since the combined disaster of the Great East Japan Earthquake and the nuclear accident. However, the population is only about 30% of that before the earthquake. Living infrastructures such as medical institutions, commercial facilities, nursing/welfare facilities, and child-rearing environments are in preparation in line with the lifting of evacuation orders. Nevertheless, challenges continue to increase, such as a drastic decrease in working age, measures against harmful birds and animals, and a resumption rate of rice cultivation of as low as about 10%.
