The "Fukushima Food" set is a collaboration between Genron and Ogawa Mushroom Garden in Iwaki City, Fukushima Prefecture, and Kamaboko Takachi. Both are safe, secure and delicious foods.

The company's official blog explains why publisher Genron sells Fukushima food:

"Genron has been presiding over the" Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant Tourist Destination Plan "since September 2012. About 25 years later, on the premise that decontamination has progressed sufficiently, the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant and its surroundings will be visited as tourist destinations. It advocates the significance of building a facility that will pass on the memories of the nuclear accident to posterity as a lesson. In promoting this plan, the regeneration of "Fukushima's food" is a very important issue. Genron is thinking.

By collaborating with two companies that continue production with an eye on the future of Fukushima without compromising on peace of mind and taste even after the nuclear accident, and Genron, which has its head office in Tokyo, the efforts of the local people will be widely known and Fukushima's efforts will be widely known. I would like to contribute to the creation of a society that does not view food and Fukushima as taboo. "
