Tamura, a city about 20 km west of the nuclear plant that was originally in the no-go zone, was moved to the sub-20 millisievert zone in April 2012 and is recovering quickly.

The ban on vegetable shipments from Tamura was lifted last month, making it the first in the no-go zone to receive the green light for sales.

Residents and agricultural cooperatives in the city said that at least two farms are preparing to plant rice and others are planning to grow feed grain.
