It has been passed 10 years
since the Great East Japan Earthquake, or the earthquake and tsunami on March 11 in 2011, and accident at TEPCO’s Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station.

This museum has been opened to connect with future generations, taking the memories and records of the massive
and compound disaster never before experienced in Japan as lessons in disaster prevention and mitigation.
Let’s work together to build a “New Fukushima,” clearly communicating the experience of the disaster to the next generation, so that it does not fade away.
