    A small drone, flying over Tomioka, Fukushima prefecture, captured images of tons of nuclear waste.

    Millions of black bags, full of radioactive soil and debris, can be seen packed layers over layers in the land area the size of few dozen football fields.

    Four years ago, a tsunami crashed through coastal towns in northern Japan, setting off meltdowns at Fukushima Daiichi plant.
