Because I’m not in Japan anymore, I can’t interview people on the streets, but I can introduce some tweets of Japanese people.
Japanese people are shy. They don’t like to show up on Youtube or express themselves in English. Contrarily, foreign people want to know what they are thinking, why they don’t evacuate.
so I’m trying to keep the voices up here.
About the settlement reports, I couldn’t keep the record because I was moving from South Europe to Central Europe. I thought writing articles should come before making the settlement reports. Anyway, I really appreciate your support as always. I had a lot from a lot of the people.
Everyday I receive messages from my friends in Tokyo or in Okinawa. I can sense they become sick day after day. People are having nosebleed even in Okinawa. People are more nervous and tired in Tokyo. I hope to share the feeling with readers. This is what is actually going on.
Among 10 mothers of friends in kindergarten, who don’t care about radiation, 2 of the children died of cardiac arrest in January, 2 of other children have abnormal cardiac rhythm. One of them is hospitalized every month. It’s in Chiba.
I heard that (↑) story from the mother directly too. Around me, a man in 30s and another man in 40s had sudden death, I was scared too. I searched by myself too, am worried about children remaining in North Japan and Kanto. will try to talk to close friends.
My parents came from Fukushima city to Sendai. They say they become awkward if they talk about radiation at neighborhood association. Decontamination is not progressing. All the tree were cut from the park and the surface soil is buried in the center. The place is off limits. Decontamination on the roof is causing unnecessary conflicts with neighbors because of the water jumping to the neighbor’s house. The neighbor is aging. They don’t even have energy to be angry.
Yesterday, a 1 year old infant died in Koriyama. The parens went to see him because he didn’t wake up from nap. had an autopsy at Fukushima medical university, but the reason of death was just “sudden death”.
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.
