The situation is worse than you think.Please do know that and tell it to everyone.
If you ever think of visiting Japan,or already staying in Japan,you must be aware of the food risk.
Since 311,under the slogan ( The Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries )”Let’s support north Japan by consuming their agricultural products (including Fukushima) “,
lots of the food have been distributed to all over Japan,with NO radiation check.
Unchecked food from North Japan and Kanto area have already reached Okinawa,where is 1500km far from Fukushima.
100 of 600 local governments around in Tokyo and north Japan do not conduct any radiation check for their local products.
Moreover,JP gov allowed them to move Fukushima cows to all around in Japan,such as beef,pork,chicken,etc..
When they are sold at supermarket,they are labelled as being originated from the “moved area” out of Fukushima.
In the second biggest city of Japan,Yokohama,Fukushima beef was served for elementary school lunch until very recent.
However,some school ban students bringing their home-made lunch box and water bottle only “to keep it normal”.Students were forced to eat contaminated food knowing the risk.
Recently Yokohama local government finally admitted that cesium beef was served for 8,000 students.(Max ; 719Bq/kg)
Suspected food has already been served for 84,000 students only in Yokohama.
Japanese children have NO right to reject consuming radioactive food.
It’s not only children.It’s also you who are not allowed to choose.
Labeling of the food origin is carefully manipulated.
In Hotel,in restaurant,in department store,in convenient store,they make it impossible for you to recognize the origin.
It’s getting more difficult and more to buy “clean” food in Japan.
You can even call it the state of “civil war”.
Please tell this truth to everyone around you and save us.
Label of the origin has been based on the prefectures but it’s becoming “made in Japan”,
when it comes to fish,it’s “from Pacific ocean” and “from Korea/Japan sea”.
i expect you foreign countries put pressure on JP gov,so they may prepare radiation checker for food at every school like Belarus.
If you are planning to Japan,please tell hotels to prepare the checker at hotels too.

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.
