Fukushima gov to open swimming beach / 94 Bq/Kg from sea floor, but don’t even check sand [URL]


Fukushima prefectural government and Iwaki city government are going to open 2 swimming beaches this summer (Yotsukura & Nakoso) without analyzing the beach sand.

They measured 3,167 Bq/Kg of Cesium-134/137 from the beach sand last year, which is 32 times much as food safety limit. (cf, Iwaki city opened Yotsukura swimming beach / 3,200 Bq/kg from sand [URL])

They won’t analyze the sand this year and the reason is not announced. The analysis data of last year is also removed from their website for some reason.

Instead of beach sand, they analyzed the sand of sea floor for some reason. However they measured Cs-134/137 from all of the 5 samples taken in the 2 swimming beaches.

The highest reading was 93.8 Bq/Kg. This is almost the equivalent of food safety limit.

These swimming beaches will be open from 7/20 to 8/17/2014 even for the children.


Fukushima prefectural government announced all the swimming beaches and lake beaches are safe enough to swim in 2014.

From May to June, they tested the 2 swimming beaches and 14 lake beaches of Inawashiro Lake for radiation level, colon bacillus and transparency.

They announced “there was no problem”. However, specific levels of radioactive material were not announced for some reason.


On 6/23/2014, the highest density of Tritium was measured from seawater of all the crippled reactors in Fukushima plant.

(cf, Highest density of Tritium measured from seawater of all of the crippled reactors even outside of underground wall [URL 2])

However Fukushima prefecture is going to open the 2 swimming beaches on 7/20/2014, and 14 lake beaches of Inawashiro Lake on 7/11/2014.

La préfecture de Fukushima  : “Toutes les plages maritimes ouvertes à la baignade et les 14 du lac sont assez sûres” / Leurs niveaux de radioactivité ne sont pas publiés


Article lié : La pref de Fukushima ouvre une plage à la baignade : 94 Bq/kg au fond de la mer mais ils ne contrôlent même pas le sable

La préfecture de Fukushima et la municipalité d’Iwaki vont ouvrir deux plages à la baignade l’été prochain (Yotsukura & Nakoso) sans faire d’analyse du sable des plages.
L’an dernier ils avaient relevé  3 167 Bq/kg de césium-134/137 dans le sable de la plage, soit 32 fois la limite de sécurité alimentaire. (cf. La ville d’Iwaki ouvre la plage de Yotsukura à la baignade : 3 200 Bq/kg dans le sable)
Ils n’analyseront pas le sable cette année et la raison n’en est pas donnée. Les résultats des analyses de l’an dernier ont également été retirés de leur site web sans explication.

A la place du sable de la plage, ils ont analysé celui du fond de la mer. Ils y ont quand même trouvé du Cs-134/137 sur l’ensemble des 5 échantillons pris pour ces 2 plages.
Le record en a été de 93,8 Bq/kg. C’est pratiquement équivalent à la limite de sécurité alimentaire.

Ces plages seront ouvertes à la baignade du 20 juillet au 17 août 2014, même aux enfants.

La préfecture de Fukushima a déclaré que toutes les plages ouvertes à la baignade et les lacs sont assez sûrs en 2014 pour pouvoir s’y baigner.
Ils ont échantillonné 2 plages de baignade et 14 autour du lac d’Inawashiro pour leur radioactivité, concentration en colibacilles et transparence de leur eau. Ils ont déclaré qu’il “n’y a aucun problème”. Néanmoins, aucun des niveaux de radioactivité relevés n’ont été communiqués.

Le 23 juin 2014, le record en tritium était relevé dans l’eau de mer de tous les réacteurs dévastés de la centrale de Fukushima. (cf. Record en tritium dans l’eau de mer de tous les réacteurs dévastés, même à l’extérieur du mur souterrain)
Malgré ce, la préfecture de Fukushima va ouvrir les 2 plages à la baignade dès le 20 juillet et les 14 plages du lac d’Inawashiro à partir du 11 juillet 2014.

  1. Iori San,

    Your new website is excellent, and the quality of your reporting is getting better every day. This is important information: the government is simply not telling the public the facts. Everyone has the right to know the actual measurements of radiation in the sand on the beach where children will play.

    I hope independent researchers in the area will take samples of the sand. I think they could be sent to Fairewinds in Connecticut or to Marco Caltofen’s lab for analysis. The public needs to know the facts, not only the CPM, but the identification of specific radionuclides, which a portable detection device cannot determine.

    Keep up the good work.

  2. TEPCO, Fukushima & Japan say – Trust Us

    Eat the food. Drink the water. Return to your home. Enroll the kids in school.

    Everything is safe. ALL is well. You are not sick. Everyone is alive and healthy. Nobody died. The radiation is contained. Laugh and smile and radiation cannot hurt you.

    Japan is LYING! That is all.

    1. Hi Bill, haven’t you heard – “Thyroid Disease” is a “People’s Disease” in Japan (according to Asaichi). The worst that those kids will get is depression and fatigue, obviously.

      I’d be laughing right now if I wasn’t crying.

      1. We can add to the LIST of Tōhoku region (東北地方, Tōhoku-chihō) ‘Nipponese Diseases’. These Japanese peoples, exist, for one cannot properly refer to it as live; in a nuclear exclusion zone and suffer all the characteristic sequelae of excessive, and cumulative internal radiation exposures. The spontaneous signs and symptoms include: nosebleeds, heart attacks, congestive heart failure, heart damage, arrhythmias, conduction difficulties, weakness, fatigue, abortions, miscarriages, birth defects, and immunological suppression. And sufficient time has elapsed for the leukemias, breast cancers, organ cancers and bone cancers to increase.

        Japan deliberately scattered radioactive fallout contaminants across Honshu Island by dumping, temporary storage and incineration. Thus, these maladies will be forever increased all over the Main Island.

  3. Does this lunacy persist in the Fukushima Nuclear Exclusion Zone?

    [Column] ‘Japan may seek solution of Fukushima in drifting to the right’, November 19, 2012, http ://fukushima-diary.com/2012/11/japan-may-seek-solution-of-fukushima-in-drifting-to-the-right/

    “They have already started sending high school students to the disaster area for clean up the debris etc. It’s likely that they make it a credit necessary to graduate from schools to go to Fukushima (plant).”

  4. In these hospitals I found people who when the bomb fell, suffered absolutely no injuries, but now are dying from the uncanny after-effects . . .

    “THE SULPHUR SMELL: My nose detected a peculiar odour unlike anything I have ever smelled before. It is something like Sulphur, but not quite. I could smell it when I passed a fire that was still smouldering, or at a spot where they were still recovering bodies from the wreckage. But I could also smell it where everything was still deserted. They believe it is given off by the poisonous gas still issuing from earth soaked with radioactivity released by the split uranium atom. And so the people of Hiroshima today are walking through the forlorn desolation of their once proud city with gauze masks over their mouths and noses. It probably does not help them physically. But it helps them mentally.”

    ‘Voice and Silence in the First Nuclear War: Wilfred Burchett and Hiroshima’, By Richard Tanter*, http ://japanfocus.org/-Richard-Tanter/2066

  5. On the morning of 7 September Burchett stumbled off the train in Tokyo to discover that senior US officials had called a press conference at the Imperial Hotel to refute his article. He reached the press conference just in time to hear Brigadier-General Thomas Farrell, the deputy head of the Manhattan atomic bomb project, explain that the bomb had been exploded at a sufficient height over Hiroshima to avoid any risk of ‘residual radiation’. There was a dramatic moment as I rose to my feet, feeling that my scruffiness put me at a disadvantage with the elegantly uniformed and bemedalled officers. My first question was whether the briefing officer had been to Hiroshima. He had not. I then described what I had seen and asked for explanations. He was very polite at first, a scientist explaining things to a layman. Those I had seen in the hospital were victims of blast and burn, normal after any big explosion. Apparently the Japanese doctors were incompetent to handle them, or lacked the right medication. He discounted the allegation that any who had not been in the city at the time of the blast were later affected. Eventually the exchanges narrowed to my asking how he explained the fish still dying when they entered a stream running through the centre of the city. ‘Obviously they were killed by the blast or overheated water.’ ‘Still there a month later?’ ‘It’s a tidal river. so they could be washed back and forth.’ ‘But I was taken to a spot in the city outskirts and watched live fish turning on their stomachs upwards as they entered a certain patch of the river. After that they were dead within seconds.’ The spokesman looked pained. ‘I’m afraid you’ve fallen victim to Japanese propaganda.’ he said, and sat down. The customary ‘Thank you’ was pronounced and the conference ended. Although my radiation story was denied, Hiroshima was immediately put out of bounds, and I was whisked off to a US Army hospital for tests. At the hospital, Burchett’s white-blood-cell count was found to be lower than normal. At the time Burchett accepted the explanation of the low white-corpuscle count as the work of antibiotics he had been given earlier for a knee infection. Only many years later did Burchett discover that the explanation was quite wrong: the number of white corpuscles in his blood ought to have increased to fight the infection. On the other hand a low white-blood-cell count is characteristic of radiation illness.

  6. For no apparent reason their health began to fail. They lost appetite. Their hair fell out. Bluish spots appeared on their bodies. And then bleeding began from the ears, nose and mouth. At first, doctors told me, they thought these were the symptoms of general debility. They gave their patients Vitamin A injections. The results were horrible. The flesh started rotting from the hole caused by the injection of the needle. And in every case the victim died.

    Radiation deaths were still occurring in large numbers when Burchett visited the Communications hospital – and still occur today as the long-term effects of exposure to radiation are revealed in the form of a variety of blood diseases, leukaemia and other cancers.

    Immediate radiation effects were clear among substantial numbers who entered the hypo centre area within two or three days. In the long term, ‘the crude mortality rate for leukaemia, according to the 1960 national census, was three times greater for those entering Hiroshima within three days after the bombing than the average crude leukaemia rate in all of Japan.’

    Japanese doctors told us they were helpless to deal with burns caused by the bomb’s great flash or with the other physical ailments caused by the bomb . . . They told us that persons who had been only slightly injured on the day of the blast lost 86 per cent of their white blood corpuscles, their hair began to drop out, they lost appetites, vomited blood and finally died.

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.
