Fall Out

I posted these pictures of Daigo Fukuryumaru-Lucky Dragon No.5 fishing boat, which I took at Daigo Fukuryumaru museum in Yumenoshima.

It is free museum exhibits a several ten meter fishing boat which was exposed by nuclear test around Bikini in 1954.

I knew about the museum long time ago, but I had never visited. Because I had never any reality about the nuclear test in the mid 20 century and I was thinking it was all done and never happen again.

But the same materials hit Fukushima, East Japan, whole Japan and north hemisphere by catastrophe of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear plant since 3.11, 2011.
