A town near the damaged Fukushima nuclear plant has held its first summer festival in 6 years.

Naraha Town was one of the communities ordered by the central government to evacuate after the 2011 nuclear accident. The evacuation order was lifted last September.

The summer festival on Saturday featured performances by local musical bands and traditional arts on a stage set up in a park overlooking the ocean.

In the nearly one year since the evacuation order was lifted, fewer than 10 percent of the 7,300 residents have returned to the town. But many residents who are still living in temporary housing outside the town attended the festival.
