The Tamura City region of Fukushima Prefecture in Japan lies largely within the 20 km evacuation zone for the Fukushima nuclear disaster. The Japanese government plans to lift the evacuation order soon and encourage residents to return. Between October 1 and 5, 2013, Greenpeace radiation experts checked the radiation levels in the Tamura City region.
