Japanese nuke safety whistleblower info


Nuclear safety test is totally manipulated.

I was working at Japan Nuclear Energy Safety Organization,my job was to check safety level of nuc plants.

March in 2009,I checked Tomaru genpatsu in Hokkaido,which will be re-started soon.The test result was a “no”.The reactor is not capable to control the heat when the cooling system is damaged.

Only when I plugged control rod and add boracic acid,it worked.

I submit the result to my boss but it was turned down.They forced me to manipulate the result.
I managed to submit the result to The Nuclear Agency as original version,but the manipulating order of my boss was not issued.I claimed but they decreased his evaluation and rejected his re-employment.

Accepting academic report tells,they detected thousands of Bq of neptunium239 in Iidate mura in March.

[Death festival]

In Fukushima,they held a traditional mud festival.They play valley ball in mud for some reason. Air dose was 0.20uSv/h. Attendance said,”We will have a good time,we don’t care about radiation.”

Obviously,the mud contains a lot of radioactive fallout.

Jpn Min of Health Radiation Guide for Pregnant women


Ministry of Health distributed a booklet. This is a list of FAQ about radiation,which pregnant women or mother with infants frequently ask.

Q Can I give food to our babies ?
A Yes,no problem.

A Yes,it is.Staying inside is more harmful for health.

[Evacuators are fired]

People who evacuated from Fukushima to other prefectures are threatened by their companies.
They promised with their companies in Fukushima that they will come back in 6 months.
However,companies threaten them to come back sooner.There are a lot of the cases that they are fired if the workers turn it down before 6 months passed.

Ministry of health states,that’s the case of out of law.They need to talk to each other.We have nothing to do with it.

[Seismic assessment of Japanese nuclear agency is totally manipulated]

The chief of seismic assessment team for nuclear plants resigned to feel guilty for the national policy to manipulate seismic assessment data.

His team reviewed all the past seismic assessment data to build all the Japanese nuc plants and they found out they are very untidy.
He clearly states,Japan is the worst earthquake country,they should abandon nuclear power.

[Nuc is not cheap]

Government gave 4,500 billion yen to nuclear power department every year,but 40% of it was spent to persuade the local governments where nuc plants are located.(Bribery)

About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
