Japan Fleeing Radiation

In this Saturday, April 5, 2014 photo, Kokoro Kamiyama, 13, left in foreground, attends an opening ceremony of her Aida junior high school as she starts her new life in Matsumoto, central Japan, after moving from Fukushima. Kamiyama is the first child to sign on to the Matsumoto project which Chernobyl-doctor-turned-mayor Akira Sugenoya of Matsumoto, offered his Japanese town to get children out of Fukushima. Kamiyama was prone to skipping school when she was in Fukushima, which her mother believes was a sign of stress from worrying about radiation. She is happy she can run around outdoors in the city without wearing a mask. “The air feels so clean here,” Kamiyama said. (AP Photo/Koji Sasahara)
