My birthday is going to end

It’s getting closer when I go to point B.

Luckily I managed to find a good foster parents of my turtles and I will let them take over the boys this weekend.

Having said I’m going, I can not speak ill of people to stay. If the foster parents decide to move too, my turtles will be left.

I really hope nothing bad would happen to any of them.

I decided to abandon my family members. I gave up convincing them so my going means the end of the family.

Still, better than dying.

I wanted to post more articles today but I ran out of time again.

I received some questions.

1) Why don’t I go to South Japan, like Okinawa ?

There is no safe place in Japan. Okinawa is relatively safe, but radioactive debris and contaminated food are distributed. Plus, it’s hard to measure alpha ray and neutron ray.

I know eastern europe and some places of europe are contaminated but I believe it’s still better than Japan.

2) Are there any other people evacuating from Tokyo ?

Yes there are.

I went to my doctor yesterday, but my regular doctor evacuated. He was the vice president of the hospital.

I’m involved in the real estate industry. People used to sell property to pay succession tax, but recently, our clients are 40s to 50s. They sell their property and move, to somewhere. They are too young to retire, but too old to inherit.

The family who I met last week had 50 million~70 million yen of real estate property, and they built their house only 3 years ago, but they sold it, and are going somewhere.

We are not supposed to ask where they are going.

As you know, famous people are moving out of Japan as well. They move to far islands or move to America or Canada.

3) Isn’t there a subscription button ?

I made one. Yes, I’m becoming a greedy beggar.

I think paypal will invoice you monthly, but don’t know how you are supposed to cancel it. I hope to hear if anyone tries it.

Of course you can read this even if you don’t pay anything.

I’m thinking of putting the names of the donators (Only if you approve of this first though!). This is all for honor.

Thank you for supporting me all the time.

I recently noticed, nuclear industry is united internationally. They all try to downplay all the nuclear accidents. I feel like I spend the rest of my life on fighting against them.

  1. “famous people are moving out of Japan as well”

    Who are they ? Are they politicians, sportmen, actors, showbiz stars ?

    1. There was a news article a couple of months ago which reported that wealthy Japanese were leaving Tokyo for Singapore – officially for tax purpose. I think this tatemae as their friends and professional acquaintances would never speak to them again if they told the real reason behind their move. Of course, taxes will go up to bail out TEPCO so it’s a half-truth.

  2. I will be standing there beside you fighting too for the rest of my own life. I am so so sorry this has happened. I do not know any other words that will touch the pain you and many in Japan are enduring. Just know that there are many of us standing hand in hand with you for a lifetime if that is what it takes.

  3. yepppp! you`ll gonna spend the rest of your life on fighting against them cause you are destined to do so… a heroic destiny…look !!!! a lot of people cares about you. i got my visa from canada too so leaving very soon ..gonna press the subscription button..keep goin on!

  4. Hi Mochizuki — So sad to see what it’s come to for you. Still, perhaps a new beginning will afford you more of what you want/need? As for my donation, please label it with my name and with Nuclear Hotseat Podcast. You have permission to use both. — Libbe.

  5. run. Run NOW!

    Japan is doomed to a slow nuclear strangulation from Fuku or decimation from the other nuclear powers who want the slow creeping contamination to end.

  6. 🙁 I wish I could help you out, as soon as you figure out who I am on facebook you will know I am effed’ to be able to help you. Other than opening my home in the United States to you I am helpless to help you right now

  7. & I know it doesn’t help much but I think if we all occasionally click the adds here it could add up… A gaming group I am involved with manages to scrape up a few dollars a month towards the server payment by doing so.

  8. Hey Mochizuki!

    I am leaving Japan too, I am going to Mexico in the next week. Japan is now very dangerous because the distribution of contaminated food and the burning of radioactive materials. I just can not believe it. If you would like to evacuate to Mexico, I can help you with the documents there and finding a new job and life there, just keep in touch.

  9. by the way, Mexico and Belgium gave up also with Nuke Power. Mexico was planning to build 10 new Nuclear plants, all the contracts were cancelled after Fukushima’s accident! I hope we can win this war against nuclear power, at least 3 countries now are stopping nulear power: Germany, Belgium, Mexico

  10. I thought you had written earlier on that you were a civil engineer with a now defunct Japanese cool culture export on-line business – man of many trades!

    Good luck. I agree with you that Okinawa is not a long-term solution but again, nowhere is. In this age, we or our children may have to migrate as industrial disasters strike here and there. Nuclear power is not the only threat. Besides social unrest should also be considered. For instance, when Europe or Japan or the US next crash occur, it will affect every country:where would you prefer living, if law was not enforced anymore?I’d rather be in Japan…

    It will be an interesting adventure for you, hope your friends are trustworthy – it’s a wild world!

  11. Lori, please take a very good care of you. I read so many of your articles and I hope I will get to read more of them. I myself am in the same place you are now right ow. I will move to eastern Japan very shortly. I was thinking that we might see each other before we leave this place but someday. Thank you, Lori.

  12. “nuclear industry is united internationally. They all try to downplay all the nuclear accidents.”
    Very true ! The messages I receive told me many times about lies and invented stories…….
    Blessings to you IORI, good luck and stay in contact with me !

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.
