News: Give us Geiger counter

Now in Japan,Geiger counter is in a serious demand.

Because of the “social pressure”, which is a beautiful custom of Japanese, the only “right” Geiger counter is supposed to be the ones of “Horiba”.

Ministry of science made a bunch of orders to Horiba and all the authorities are supposed to use the brand though it only detects gamma ray.

By the way, Yamamoto Taro, one of the most famous anti-nuc actor was accused of “trying to push into the Saga prefectural government”. (He has had one of his dramas cancelled by the sponsor because of his anti-nuc statements, he left the office in May)

Saga local government and Kyushu power company made up pro-nuc comments to manipulate the public opinion and intended to re-start the Genkai genpatsu.


Yamamoto Taro came to the prefectural government to submit the petition to stop re-starting the nuc plant.

However, Saga prefectural government built a barricade against the people.

Yamamoto Taro struggled to pass the petition but because the mayor did not come out,he could not pass it to him.

and 9/21, an administrative notary public accused him for “criminal trespass”.

However, this administrative notary public belonged to a political party called “Kyoto party” and the administrator of this party is also the president of “HORIBA”.

HORIBA dominates all the order of Geiger counter from the government, and trying to make us believe all the other brands are useless.

No wonder, Mr.Horiba is very pro-nuc.

We actually need to detect beta ray and alpha ray hopefully.

“Inspector +α” looks like the best one to detect.

(The video below is to show they detected 30 uSv/h at Fukushima station)

and this one is very pricy in Japan. (Over 150,000JPY)

The second best brands are MKS-05, RADEX1706.

They are proven to have the same quality.

In March, one of my French friends asked me if I needed something. I asked him to send me a Geiger counter. He took it a joke but now that’s one of the things that we most need.

I guess Inspector+, MKS-05,RADEX1706 might be cheaper in Europe or in USA than in Japan. and now USD and EURO are cheaper than before.

If you can suggest anything,please feel free to help us.

We need honest Geiger counters.

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.
