英文:6 years will have passed from the Tokyo Electric Power Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station accident and the Japanese government has moved forward by allowing some residents to move back to their homes. Starting in spring in 2014, some evacuation zones were remarked as safe areas. But as reconstruction still needs to be done in these areas, there are not enough jobs for residents. Because of this I focused on forestry which is one of the foundation industries in mountain areas. I looked back to the forestry situation after the nuclear accident and analyzed the reconstruction and problems associated with it. Whether allowing residents to return home is related to the revitalization of the forest, forestry and mountain village depends on the continuation and the possible resumed use of the forest. Developing a policy which has strengthened environment protection and job creation is needed. It is important for the policy to indicate the structure of reconstruction for the forestry industry as well as a way to facilitate the restoration and enhancement of the natural environment for people who wish to return to the land they used to live on.
