Made in Fukushima. The Book. / Made out of rice straw from decontaminated fields.

After the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster, over 25,000 hectares of farmland were contaminated. Despite the success of sustainable decontamination methods, people hesitated to buy rice from the region. Without farming, Fukushima communities struggled to survive. Made in Fukushima is a book made out of the rice straw from the decontaminated fields of Fukushima. It helps people understand the decontamination method and the safety of the rice. 296 pages of crafted paper tell the story using photography, interviews, reports, data and its visualization. Today, the price of Fukushima rice is on the rise, restoring hope in the region and its farmers.
