What you will learn at this facility

J-Village became a base for the stabilization work of the nuclear power plant accident.
For some time after the earthquake, the natural grass pitch was used as a parking lot and a center for responding to the nuclear power plant accident to provide support for the reconstruction.
Visitors can learn about the sequence of events leading up to the return of lush green grass at J-Village and its full reopening as well as the situation after the nuclear power plant accident.
