Chilling photos have emerged of the isolated zone around Fukushima, and it looks like something you would see in a post apocalyptic film.

The zone is of course abandoned, after a huge nuclear explosion in three power plants was triggered by an earthquake.

The quake measured nine on the Richter scale, and was devastating for the area, causing a Tsunami.

160,000 people were forced to flee their homes after the explosion due to radiation concerns, with photographer Arkadiusz Podniesinski visiting the area and documenting the aftermath.
