My feeling on The Great East Japan Earthquake

HIRUTA Manami, 14, Yoshima junior high school
Translated by TSURUOKA Atsuto

 In school, we do not talk much about radiation. As time passed since the nuclear accident, probably many people don’t care about it anymore. When we play tennis, we are joking “You can’t fall down, otherwise radiation will attach to you”. We only say that much.

 We can’t use the swimming pool. During a PE class, I saw our principal measuring radiation dose at the playground. I was depressed with this situation. When it was raining, we used to shout “You are going to lose your hair” and ran away.

 School lunch center in Iwaki was damaged by the earthquake. Instead they introduced “school lunch”. A firm at Saitama Prefecture prepares lunch, and it was carried by chilled transport from Saitama. They warm chilled foods in Iwaki. We have various kinds of foods, but we do not have miso soup. Without soup, it is difficult for me to eat meals. Everyone does not complain, but I do not like this lunch. I want to eat the former school lunch as soon as possible.

 We have a school trip in September every year. It has been a day trip. This year, it turned out to be an overnight trip. We were lucky to have a financial support from Fukushima Prefecture. In Ouchi-juku, we ate a lot of tamakonnyaku and shingoro (local dishes in Aizu.) Even before dinner, I was already full. We stayed at Ashinomaki Onsen (hot spring.) As radiation dose is low there, I was able to relax.

 Even now I see the news of nuclear disaster every day. It is still dangerous, it is far away from safety. Many people have left from Iwaki. Many people become separated from hometown and friends. I feel sad whenever I think of this fact. I want those adults who made nuclear power plants to have a lot of efforts to revive Fukushima as it was. I only wish so.
