Wrecks of cars remain strewn along the coastline within the exclusion zone around Japan's Fukushima nuclear plant.
Fox News' David Piper is outfitted in a radiation suit to venture into the exclusion zone.
Crews search for bodies along the coast. About 4,000 people still are reported as missing.
Former residents of the exclusion zone must wear radiation suits and face masks to visit their old homes, and they are checked for radiation after returning.
Despite cleanup efforts elsewhere, in the exclusion zone, debris and vehicles still can be found where they settled after the waters subsided.
Signs of life are virtually gone -- no domestic or farm animals, only birds.
Fox News gets a close-up look at the 12-mile exclusion zone around Japan's crippled Fukushima nuclear plan a year after the country's tsunami and nuclear crisis.
