Avoiding the radiation

Mamoru Sakai, 40, a truck driver from Iwaki, Fukushima who evacuated the city with his family, sits on a mat inside the Saitama Super Arena, a temporary shelter in Saitama, north of Tokyo, on March 22.

The family has been staying at the shelter since March 18 as thousands of residents from the city evacuated to avoid high levels of radiation surrounding the quake-hit nuclear plant.
