Civilization Swallowed By Nature! Eerie Photos Reveal How Fukushima Exclusion Zone Looks Now!

Fukushima

Polish photographer Arkadiusz Podniesinski traveled to Fukushima, the site of the nuclear disaster, and obtained permits to enter a 12.5 mile area known as the Fukushima Exclusion Zone. Here he proceeded to take some pretty amazing photographs which resemble movie sets that are post apocalyptic in nature.

Here’s what he says about the sight:
