After more than eight years as nuclear exiles, some have chosen to return to the small town of Okuma in Fukushima, Japan.

The town is the site of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear power plant which suffered a triple meltdown after it was hit by a huge tsunami in 2011, and lost all cooling.

Around 40% of the town’s land area has been cleaned up and the radiation levels lowered enough for people to return. So, are they coming home?
