Uncanny Terrain: 40 years ago, Hongo says he was the only person in Samegawa to oppose nuclear power in Fukushima. Since the accident, Samegawa has been declared safe for cultivation.

鮫川町、福島県。本郷さんは無農薬米栽培をしてきた何十年。震災による原発事故の放射能汚染で今年は、減反し、今まで買ってきてきてくれたお客さんには、「浄化をするから ,米はつくりません」と自ら作付けを止めている。自分の食べるぶんだけは育て、残りの余った土地へはひまわりを植える予定。
