The Radioactive Man Who Returned To Fukushima To Feed The Animals That Everyone Else Left Behind

Naoto Matsumura is the only human brave enough to live in Fukushima’s 12.5-mile exclusion zone

He fled at first but returned to take care of the animals that were left behind

He returned for his own animals at first, but realized that so many more needed his help, too

Matsumura, who is 55 years old, knows that the radiation is harmful, but he “refuses to worry about it”


“They also told me that I wouldn’t get sick for 30 or 40 years. I’ll most likely be dead by then anyway, so I couldn’t care less”


Matsumura discovered that thousands of cows had died locked in barns


He also freed many animals that had been left chained up by their owners


Many of them now rely on him for food

The government has forbidden him from staying, but that doesn’t stop him either


He started in 2011 and is still going strong 4 years later


He relies solely on donations from supporters to work with and feed the animals


His supporters are calling him the ‘guardian of Fukushima’s animals’


The man clearly has a sense of humor as well

The untold human suffering and property damage left in the wake of the Fukushima disaster in Japan has been well-documented, but there’s another population that suffered greatly that few have discussed – the animals left behind in the radioactive exclusion zone. One man, however, hasn’t forgotten – 55-year-old Naoto Matsumura, a former construction worker who lives in the zone to care for its four-legged survivors.He is known as the ‘guardian of Fukushima’s animals’ because of the work he does to feed the animals left behind by people in their rush to evacuate the government’s 12.5-mile exclusion zone. He is aware of the radiation he is subject to on a daily basis, but says that he “refuses to worry about it.” He does take steps, however, by only eating food imported into the zone.

I’m so moved by this man’s bravery, selflessness and compassion. What a beautiful person.

Being vegan is hard. But not in the way most people think. It’s hard because we constantly think about the animals who are suffering, and whose lives are ending. Being vegan is hard because at least for me, my heart hurts constantly. Eating and living vegan is easy. Constantly being reminded a...

One of the weirdest things about going vegan is how 99.9% of food advertisements simply stop applying to you. You just become this spectator of a culture you’re no longer part of. Once you’ve lived on a plant-based diet for a certain amount of time, the idea of using animals for food bec...
