News caster evacuated

It turned out that Ms.Harada Sachiko, a news caster of Fukushima TV had evacuated to Kanawaza.

She is a mother of 6 years old daughter. Though she had been working for Fukushima TV for 15 years, she quit when she knew she was pregnant with a second baby, in July.

As a newscaster, she was in charge of making Fukushima people believe Fukushima is safe.

She reported that children ate cherries even without washing them, and had them say “yummy”.

As other newscasters, she was a “good worker” of Fukushima TV to spread lies.

Reality was starkly different

She actually had her daughter evacuate in the morning of 3/14, just before reactor 3 exploded.

She went to Kanazawa herself in March. She said that she was impressed with being able to eat food without concerned about radiation, although she spread lies to Fukushima citizens. She adds, “She shed tears to be able to eat safe food.”

Though she was making people believe Fukushima is safe, she started commuting from Kanazawa to Fukushima. She said that when she wore a mask in Shinkansen (bullet train), she felt like she was coming back to the battle field.

When she knew she was pregnant with her second baby, she decided to leave Fukushima.

She was feeling guilty to spread lies. She also says, decontamination is a wishful thought with no basis. They just want to see a hope in decontamination because they want to stay in Fukushima.

As a mother, her choice was right ,but people who trusted her reports and decided to stay were totally left out in the cold.

While she was not a director of the TV station, this is still very controversial.


  1. I rarely use the following term but I’m happy to make an exception for her.

    she’s a c#£¥. (you might want to say it but we dont want to read it, keep it clean – Nika)

    It’s her type that’s ensuring Japan will never recover. There will be no recovery until the denial stage has passed, and there’s no sign the denial stage will ever end.

  2. Could result in too bad consequences for her and her family through her if she is unable to act broadly and very qwickely to correct her position, apologize and actively help evacuation and detox of Fukushima population. Very heavy burden for her I’m sorry.

    Pray for a global shift to occur.

    Even though we are also often healthily extremely angry and kind of want to squeeze their neck, keep sending some hearted-light-loving space to her for example to help the right shift to take it’s place. Is important for each, her you and I. Is useful, very effective.

  3. Don’t be too harsh – everyone is pretty much as guilty as her. Most of my friends wanna keep living the illusion that it’s safe – expats and Japanese alike – and nobody quit their job. They have a family to feed just like her. Besides the job of a reporter in Japan, China, US, etc. is to support governmental propaganda. Would thousands of innocent families in the Middle East and Afghanistan as well as clueless US young people had died if American reporters had not played their Administration’s tune?They also played it safe for their own families.

  4. The vast majority of the news reporters in the US are also liars. They portray a local broadcast affiliate news show as an important part of the community. They pretend to be your friends and care about you and your neighbors.

    In reality, they are selling out their viewers for a paycheck, because there is a whole host of issues which they do not cover, and are not allowed to cover, by the owners of the station. Issues like the truth about the Fukushima supercatastrophe, nuclear power, fluoride in drinking water and toothpaste, vaccines, GMO food, pesticide contamination, suppressed discoveries and technologies, government-required chemicals in mattresses which kill babies and cause sleep disturbance and depression in adults. The list could go on.

    If you tell a lie, you are a liar. If you get paid to tell a lie, and threatened to lose your job, if you do not lie, then you are still a liar.

    Jesus offers liars forgivness, and promises to take care of them if they trust Him.

  5. Well, she spoke out eventually, didn’t she? Does that make her half a c#£¥?

    Most people are hypocrites, because nothing is as important as being “just like everyone else” and “normal.”

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.
