フリー見学できないのが、著しいマイナス点

Originally an "energy hall" to promote nuclear power generation, the building is castle-like, contrary to its name. Tomioka Town is in an area that was hit hard by the tsunami, but the area where this building is located did not reach it. The tour itself is free, but reservations are required. I decided to go the night before, so I couldn't make a reservation. (Opening hours only) I checked in at opening time and went inside for the first morning session. The tour time is 60 minutes (there are also 90-minute sessions). You can enter every 30 minutes. You cannot tour on your own. You are required to watch with a guide. You are not allowed to stay after the tour time is over, and you have to leave. This time, it was a 60-minute course, but it felt a bit rushed. The overall flow is "watch a video, then a staff member gives an explanation" for each exhibition space. The first prologue begins with "looking back and reflecting on the nuclear accident." First, there is an explanation about the nuclear power plant and the reason for the accident using a model. Next, we look back on the response over the 11 days since the earthquake. We also look back on the accident in the central control room. The video "Looking back on the accident in the central control room" was shown for the first time when I visited. Next, we see the efforts toward decommissioning and the measures to treat contaminated water. (Currently, contaminated water is being released into the ocean, but at the time it was before it was released.) Finally, the latest status of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant is displayed on a huge three-sided LCD display called F-Cube. It is a place where you can feel close to the facility where decommissioning work is being done, and it seems that it could not be displayed anywhere else. The content is quite realistic, but surprisingly, photography was allowed. The content was a straightforward explanation of the nuclear accident and the reconstruction work from the perspective of the company. First of all, the fact that you cannot freely visit is a significant minus. There are many detailed exhibits, but you are not even given time to look at them. I think that even the 90-minute course is probably not enough time. It seems that they are deliberately making the restrictions strict in consideration of how to deal with people who visit with malicious intent. When I went there, there were only ordinary tourists.

This facility explains and exhibits the decommissioning status of Tokyo Electric Power Company's Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. It was originally an ordinary public relations center, but after the accident it started exhibiting decommissioning-related items. When I went, it was a 60-minute guided tour, so I wasn't able to see all the exhibits, but the detailed explanations gave me a good understanding of what happened at the time of the accident, what they are doing now, and what they will do in the future. There is also a thorough explanation of how the treated water is handled, and the guide will carefully explain any points you don't understand. I think it's a great place to visit at least once to learn about the details of the accident.

よく言えば
難しい原発の仕組みを簡潔に伝え何故事故に至ったのかも冷静に分析しています。
企業のミュージアムはそのバランスが難しく退屈なものも多いですが優れており長さも理想的です。ただし未成年が見るのは難しいと思います。

悪く言えば
当時の社員(及び協力会社)の頑張りに光を当てており反省の部分はサッと流されます。東電の社員研修用設備としてこの上ない理想だと思われます。

2Fが原子力発電所のしくみと事故直後の対応
1Fが除染や処理水の処理や廃炉などが解説されています。

2022年4月現在コロナ禍では60分及び90分のツアーの見学に限られています。
ツアーといっても順番にビデオの再生を押してくれるだけです。
殆どが5〜10分のビデオで文字の展示が少ないのでツアー形式は適しています。

60分コースだと2Fが6割と1Fが2割に
90分コースだと2Fが9割、1Fがが3割程度しか見られません。

90分コースでカットされる1Fの内容は東電HP「福島の取り組み」「原子力の取り組み」で解説されている内容をビジュアル化したものが殆どで、あとは若干ロボットが置いてある程度なのでここをカットするのは妥当と思われます。
私は90分コースでももっと長くていいと思いましたが60分コースでも満足はすると思います。

原発事故ってニュースで見たけど情報が多すぎてよく分からないって人にはお勧めです。熟知しておりよりマニアックな情報を知りたいという人には向いていません。

外見はオシャレな建物の二階建ての資料館ですが、入ってからシアターで8分間の映像を体験、壁と床の二面から迫るあの時の映像には迫力がありました。全体になぜどうやって3基の原子炉が冷却機能を失っていったのかわかりやすく、同社の反省の色が滲んだ説明がされていました。驚いたのは不織布の防護服の展示と説明でした。こんな服で危険な廃炉作業をしていたのかと驚きです。
短時間でしたが学びの多い見学で、現場で廃炉に向けて営々と汗を流している方々への敬意を覚えるとともに、津波の高さの想定について必要な措置を怠ってきた同社の歴代最高幹部の責任についてのコメントがないことが後味の悪さとして残りました。

資料館には3人の西洋系の外国人が英語の解説ビデオに見入っていたほか、東電の社員らしい研修バスも来ていました。来年の常磐線の復旧後は是非もっと多くの人に見てもらいたい施設です。

原子力発電についてはいろいろな意見があると思います。ここで手続きをして、東京電力福島第一原子力発電所の見学に行きました(そちらの内容は撮影禁止です)。その後、ここで廃炉のための説明を受けました。展示内容についてリアルな写真も撮影可能でしたが、やはり気持ちが重くなり、緊張感が増します。

上野駅から特急を交えて4時間余りで福島県富岡駅で下車。人影もまばらで止まっていたタクシーで620円5分足らずで資料館に到着。事故前は「エネルギー館」と称して原発を推進する資料館だったことを彷彿させる建物です。約1時間足らずの案内見学で廃炉に向けて懸命に努力している状況を展示を交えて説明してくれます。これから30年も40年も気の遠くなる作業への決意を感じます。しかしながら燃料デブリの取り出しや汚染水の処理など明確な方向性が全く感じられなく、やはり「トイレのないマンション」を実感しました。またこれだけの事故が起きても会社の今後の原子力発電への取り組み(原発の推進をストップするのか否かなど)が明確でないのは疑問を感じます。将来のことより現在の対応だけでも懸命に取り組んでもらいたいと強く思いました。

限られた属性の人々しか福島第一原発の見学に入らせない状況のなか、廃炉現場の姿としてバーチャル「エフ・キューブ〈F・CUBE〉」は見どころでした。

原発のサイト内見学はまだ報道や原子力関係者にしか許されていないようですが、サイト内見学もここから出発します。この施設は、もともと原子力の広報施設だったのですが、改装し事故当時の事や廃炉に向けた現在の進行状況がわかりやすく、且つスペクタキュラ―に展示されていて、とても見ごたえがあります。富岡町は2017年4月に避難指示解除、JR富岡駅は10月に列車の発着が再開されています(常磐線はここから先がまだ不通です)。当館は富岡駅から徒歩15分、2018年11月にオープンしたそうです。駅から歩く途中は最近建てられたアパートや一軒家が並び、新しい街が形成されています。でも6号線を超えて反対側の町の中まで歩いてみてください。まだ、元々の地元民の帰宅者は決して多くないことがわかります。
