Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe offered Prince William food from the Fukushima prefecture in a bid to dispel fears that radioactive contamination was still an issue after the 2011 disaster. The Duke of Cambridge, who is on a four-day visit to Japan, is spending Saturday afternoon in the prefecture.
Prince William also visited a children's center in the city of Motomiya, located some 60 kilometers (40 miles) away from the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. The Duke of Cambridge and children planted a tree after playing on the Smile Kids Park playground.
In March 2011, Japan was hit by a magnitude 9.0 earthquake and a subsequent tsunami, causing three of the plant's reactors to undergo a partial meltdown. The incident, dubbed the world's worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl, claimed more than 15,000 lives and caused radioactive contamination of the surrounding atmosphere, soil and seawater.
