On the worst case scenario for Japan:

The worst case, Allen said, would be if winds pushed a radioactive cloud south toward Tokyo and Japan’s highly populated cities. If that were to happen, he said, the consequences would likely be greater than the 1986 accident at Chernobyl, where an entire area of Ukraine had to be evacuated because of the radioactive conditions that increased the risk of developing cancer.

Imagine if Tokyo were to be abandoned like Chernobyl? It would be a scene out of a science fiction apocalypse movie.
