After the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster, over 25,000 hectares of farmland were contaminated. Environmental technology specialists together with Japanese scientists developed a sustainable decontamination method that allows farmers to grow perfectly safe rice again.
Although data proved the rice was safe, people hesitated to buy Fukushima rice because they failed to understand the decontamination. Without income from farming, the region struggled to survive.
Made in Fukushima is a book made out of rice straw from the decontaminated fields in Fukushima. It helps people understand the data, by turning the rice into the medium.
