About 900 Ground Self-Defense Force troops began decontaminating local government buildings on Wednesday in areas around the disaster-hit Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Fukushima Prefecture.
The troops started to clean up municipal offices in the no-go zone and neighbouring areas.
The 900 troops consist of members stationed at camps in the prefecture and those trained to deal with radiation. Of the total, 300 were each assigned to Tomioka and Iitate, while 150 were each sent to Naraha and Namie.
