Six and half years ago, an earthquake of the greatest magnitude struck Japan. Society suffered unexpected situations, and the influence continues. However, society attention has been rapidly diminished.
We, Miraikan, believe that we should identify the outline of various risks that appeared and, as a society, we should properly prepare for their future return.
This exhibition focuses on the great tsunami and the nuclear accident. Firstly we discuss the seawalls along the bay area that became higher after the tsunami. We improved safety with those higher seawalls, but another risk arose. Let's think that what the best compromise is. Secondly, we show and discuss how we have been dealing with radioactive contamination. We ask you to pause a second to think whether you mind eating food product from radioactively contaminated land even the radioactivity level is not considerably high.
