Voice in Koori-Fukushima – Twenties,Female,Part-Time Jobber,Shibatsutsumi –
Real Voices of Reconstruction
"I thought there's something wrong in that in public, people say that they're eating, while they actually aren't doing so at home."
The woman in her twenties (part-time jobber) answered inquisitively, 7 months after the earthquake.
Koori, Fukushima has a 14.7% employment rate in its primary industrial sector, which is quite high. It is particularly known for the production of peaches that are presented to the imperial family. The agricultural industry in Koori was hit hard by the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant damage caused by 3/11 tsunami and earthquake, and the shipping of peaches was suspended accordingly. However, crops are continuing to be produced. They are placed on the dining tables of farming households, shipped to the relatives of these people, or sometimes thrown out.
It seemed that by observing the earthquake from national and international perspectives, the woman was calmly taking in the threat that nuclear reactors pose.
