It has been over six years since the deadly earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

Six years later there is still a dispute over what to do with a million tons of radioactive water.

The water is stored in 900 large and densely packed tanks. Should another earthquake happen, those tanks could become dislodged and spill out.

Some experts have advised the government to gradually release the water into the Pacific Ocean. 

Treatment has removed all the radioactive elements except tritium, which they say is safe in small amounts.
