For the photo contest, foreign residents from 21 countries submitted over 180 photos. Various perspectives of Fukushima were portrayed such as beautiful sceneries, festivals, daily life as well as the current situation of the tsunami-disaster areas, etc. These photos are filled with an appreciation towards Fukushima as a “second-home”.
