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.
@onodekita 昨日、郡山市で1歳のお子さんが亡くなりました。お昼寝をしてて起きてこないから見に行ったら… 県立医大に死亡解剖に行ったそうですが”突然死”ということだったらしいです。

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”.
