A bike depot near the station in Odaka, Fukushima. When the order to leave was given residents in the town left all of their possessions behind. Now tall grass and weeds climb up the bicycles as nature reclaims what humanity left behind.

Note: Odaka was decontaminated and is now open for people to return to, however many feel that the clean up efforts are only temporary. Because of radiation fears the town still remains mostly abandoned.
