Mikio Watanabe holds a portrait of his late wife Hamako as he poses for a photo at his home at Yamakiya district in Kawamata town, Fukushima prefecture June 23, 2014. In July 2011, nearly four months after the massive earthquake and tsunami that triggered a series of catastrophic failures at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, Hamako Watanabe returned to her still-radioactive hilltop home, doused herself in kerosene and set herself on fire. She left no suicide note, but her husband Mikio, who discovered her charred body, says plant operator Tokyo Electric is directly responsible. A district court in Fukushima is expected to rule in late August on Watanabe's lawsuit, which Tokyo Electric (Tepco) is contesting. Watanabe's house is still in an exclusion zone, where traffic is restricted to former residents and decontamination crews and he regularly commutes to maintain the empty home.
