Send me a letter


In Japan, there was a place no one can make a nuclear plant because of an old lady.

Her name is Kumagai Asako.

She owned her house and 12,000 m2 of the land, which is only 250m away from the proposed reactor.

She kept fighting against the Japanese power company, J-power, to block the nuclear plant and save the beautiful sea. She knew if she let them build the plant that the sea would be contaminated.

They threatened and tried to corrupt her but she didn’t move.

However, in May 2006, she died suddenly. They said that it was because of a venomous bug.

No one had died because of the bug for 40 years.

After her death, her daughter (Ogasawara Atsuko) and granddaughter took over the house and kept living there – to succeed Asako’s will.

Kumagai Asako, the old lady fighting against nuclear plant

Now J-power is trying to close the road to the house by saying too few people use it.

They have started counting people who use the street.

The house is called Asako house.

Asako’s daughter and granddaughter are asking you to send them letters so that the postman will use the road and then they can not close the street.

This is the message from the family.

If you sympathize, please send them a letter.


Against nuclear energy!!
No more Fukushima!!
Save Japan!!! And your country.
Do you know Asako House?
If you send a letter or a card,
You can stop to build the atomic power plant.
This house was build to stop to construct Oma atomic power plant ofAomori, north of Fukushima.
The house is near Oma genpatsu which is not in operation yet.
The road of photo that is almost blockaded.
The sign on the fence says “Keep out” but actually this road is for Asako House and her fields.
Why this road is watched by some atomic power plant?
We can’t understand.
They want to close the road and to break the house.
This state is serious violation of human rights, and Japanese constitution.
If you send some letter, this road will then be used by the postman and so the atomic power plant can’t shut it.
Pray for Japan, pray for Fukushima,
And now send your thoughts!

Asako House
Aomori Pref.

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.
