(photo: Kyodo News Service caption: Children in the town of Kawamata, Fukushima Prefecture, on June 21, 2011, hold compact dosimeters donated by Kinki University in Osaka Prefecture. The dosimeters are scheduled to be distributed to some 1,500 children and teachers at schools and nurseries in the town from the following day in the wake of radiation leaks at the Fukushima Daiichi power plant in the vicinity stemming from the March 11 quake and tsunami disaster. Part of the town has been designated an evacuation area by the central government.)
