Fukushima survivors try to rebuild lives five years on

Japan marks 5 years since the devastating earthquake and tsunami that killed more than 18,000 people and triggered a nuclear disaster in Fukushima. The fallout forced residents to flee their homes, leaving ghost towns behind them. Five years on, a few cities are still off limits to civilians. Our correspondents meet the Wada family as they explain why they still want to rebuild their hometown, Odaka, which is now only accessible during the day.
