Haunting photos show what's left in Fukushima after the 2011 nuclear disaster

11 March 2011 is a date that will be remembered by the Japanese.

On that fateful day, the Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant in Fukushima, Japan, had a meltdown following a tsunami.

After the disaster, residents living around the facility had to be evacuated due to radiation.

Six years after the incident, Acid Cow has posted a series of photos showing what's left of the areas surrounding the power plant.

As one would expect, they have become ghost towns that are a far cry from the busy, vibrant communal areas they once were.

Have a look at the haunting photos in the gallery above.
