UPDATE on Mr. Matsumura’s Permit to Stay Inside the Exclusion Zone in Fukushima

In reference to the previous article in which the permit for Mr. Matsumura was taken away but may get it back, according to Mr. Hoshi who has been rescuing dogs and cats from inside the exclusion zone and who has a direct contact with Mr. Matsumura, it is now official that on April 2, the officials will decide if they are to renew the permit for Mr. Matsumura so he could stay inside the zone.

In the meantime, Mr. Matsumura was given back his permit and he’s been back in his home inside the Fukushima 20km exclusion zone and continues living alone to take care of livestock and pets that were left behind.

Mr. Matsumura has had the permit to stay inside the area to feed animals that were left behind ever since the 311 disaster struck the area. He says that he’s aware that he’s completely exposed to the radiation fallout but wants to end his short life in his home town where he grew up. He’s also helping scientists collect materials inside the zone to help them study the effect of radiation on lives. His parents have evacuated and been living in Shizuoka prefecture after the 311 disaster. The mother is now suffering from dementia/Altzheimer’s disease.

  1. Mr. Matsumura is a hero and i am certain he will live a long and healthy life. There is so much misinformation about nuclear power and radiation levels put out by environmental activists who do not know the facts.
