A microphone has been placed at the entrance to a forest that is 10 kilometers away from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. This microphone allows us to hear, in real time, the sounds coming from this location (37° 28′ 04.3″ N, 140° 55′ 27.5″ E), which is in a restricted area due to its extremely high levels of radiation. Radioactive soundscape represent the diversity of organisms in the forest. This project aims to watch over those that will come to an end in the near future and the new lives that appearing after humans left the area by interacting with them, until the process of decommissioning the nuclear reactor has been completed
