45 New Photos Of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant Show the Damage From The Great Tohoku-Chihou-Taiheiyou-Oki Earthquake And Subsequent Tsunami That Damaged The Nuclear Power Plant

Thanks to the diligent work of photographer Daisuke TSUDA we are able to bring you brand new pictures demonstrating the hazardous conditions at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant.  Piles of radioactive rubble litter the site making work to bring the reactors under control almost impossible.  These never before published photos were captured in May, at great risk to the photography crew.

As chronicled in the photos, many of the outerlying structures and roads around the power plant are crippled and also contaminated with radioactive materials.  The work at Fukushima Daiichi continues, as the world awaits further news from TEPCO and the Japanese Government.
