We are adding English translation of the photo journal from Fukushima we received last year.
These are photos about daily life from Natsuki Tanji who turned 12 years old last summer.

This is the photo of my Birthday in June.
After dinner we had these ice cream with the birthday cake.
This fog occurred when I put dry ice into the water.
I turned into 12 years old on the day.
I thought “I already become the six grade, time flew quickly.”
I took these photographs when I went to Nasu, Tochigi prefecture, with my father at the beginning of last summer.
I made this mannequin at a place called the "whole-body counter room" at a cultural hall in Nasu.
A whole-body counter is a machine that measures your internal radiation dose.
I made the head part of the mannequin.
The material was very hard, so that I had to use a hammer to put it together.
The task was very difficult at some points, but I was glad that I completed it properly.
After that, we put all the parts everyone made together, made the mannequin and put it in the chair.
