A Japanese citizen tweeted a shop said they are no longer allowed to sell foreign dosemeters.

My geiger counter got out of order, went to the shop to repair. They said, they can no loger sell foreign geiger counters from the order of Japanese government. Government says, foreign geiger counters are not accurate, may cause panic. I wonder what they will do for the geiger counters that have already been bought by normal people. They also said it was ordered backstage. I’m scared of Japan, feel like I’m being killed quietly.

I wonder the shop is under surveillance because they seem to have a strong pipe with foreign makers. Just after 311, geiger counters were out of stock all over Japan but only that shop had stock. I’m sorry because I wanted to buy a better one made in “a” country. I don’t want to disturb the shop, so will delete this tweet soon.

After 311, a lot of the dose meters were donated by variety of countries, but still over 40,000 of them are missing.
To measure beta and alpha ray, we need to buy foreign brands.
