Fumiya Sekine, 6, and his mom, Kaori Sekine, play with his new pets, a pair of stag beetles. The family evacuated their village, 20 miles from the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant, due to high radiation levels after the meltdown. They’ve lived in a one-room, temporary refugee apartment in Koriyama since June 2011. They have no idea how long they’ll stay.<br />
