Satoshi Kamata

Born in 1938 in Aomori Prefecture, Satoshi Kamata is a writer who is known for going to the scene of issues that interest him in order to describe what is happening from an up-close perspective. His books have covered labor and social issues, such as pollution. He has been critical of the dangers of nuclear power generation since the early 1970s.

The monuments mourn the first nuclear weapons tests the French military carried out on the atoll of Moruroa. Beginning that day, records of those people harmed by France's tests have been carved into the monuments.
