First relocation plans after Fukushima disaster set to be approved by Japanese government

The Japanese government is expected to approve relocation plans from two municipal governments in northeastern Japan, who were harshly affected by the Fukushima disaster.  Such an action would mark the first approvals to collective relocations since the March 2011 disaster.

The city governments of Iwanuma and Ishinomaki in Miyagi Prefecture will launch work to implement the plans, such as purchasing and assessing lands for relocation.
