Glowing opportunity: Japan to pay citizens up to $19k to settle around crippled Fukushima nuclear plant via RT

The Japanese government has taken an unprecedented step to revive areas near the Fukushima power plant, offering hefty sums of money to those agreeing to move there. There’s a catch though – they’ll have to stay for five years.

The repopulation program, aimed at 12 municipalities surrounding the nuclear plant that were crippled during the 2011 earthquake, is set to be launched by Japan’s Reconstruction Agency next year, the Asahi Shimbun newspaper reported. 


The agency will provide financial incentive packages ranging from 1.2 million yen ($11,600) to families from other parts of Fukushima Prefecture, and up to 2 million ($19,300) to those willing to relocate from other parts of the country. The main requirement is that a family lives for five years in the agreed location.

Single individuals are encouraged to come and live around the nuclear plant as well. These packages are somewhat lower, ranging from 800,000 yen ($7,750) to Fukushima prefecture-dwellers to 1.2 million for those coming from elsewhere in Japan. A special offer also awaits those industrious enough to start businesses up in the municipalities, as they are eligible for a package of up to 4 million yen ($38,700).

    There are many people out there that have no idea about the Dark Web, or how to use the links on your iPhone from the Dark Web. If you are not aware of what the Dark Web is let me explain it for you. The Dark Web is the part of the Internet that is not indexed by popular search engines like Google, and that is because it is considered a part of the cyber-crime world, and is used for human illegal transactions such as stealing financial data, hacking government sites, and other things
