Hanamiyama Park in Fukushima City, Fukushima Prefecture Japan, is a famous flower spot where beautiful flowers are in full bloom for shipment of cut flowers.The late photographer Shotaro Akiyama, who knew the beauty of Hanamiyama, described this area as Fukushima has Togenkyo, and visited there every year.
Due to the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station of the Tokyo Electric Power Company due to the Great East Japan Earthquake that occurred in the Tohoku region, the hot spot was temporarily contaminated with radioactivity.
However, the Hanamiyama Protection Association continued decontamination work to protect tourists from radioactivity, and protected the scenery of the beautiful flowers blooming.
Thanks to that, the land has become safe for people.
