Unable to return, Futaba residents fear becoming lost tribe
No homecoming in sight for those who agreed to host nuclear plant
KAZO, SAITAMA PREF. – Makiyasu Matsumoto, 82, worries he may never be able to return to his hometown of Futaba, which was rendered uninhabitable by the wrecked Fukushima No. 1 power plant.
“I want to go back, because Futaba has been my home almost all my life. But I might have to give up on my hopes, considering the present situation,” Matsumoto said at an evacuation center where he now lives in Kazo, Saitama Prefecture.
