Fukushima kindergarten imported sandbox sand from Australia

They can’t even supply radiation free sand in Fukushima. can’t understand why they try to remain in Fukushima even by importing sand from Australia. Even if the sand is not so contaminated, everything else is contaminated.

I really want these kids in the picture to grow up and live long.


Affiliated kindergarten of Fukushima college imported sandbox sand from Australia to open the event called “container kids☆sandbox” on 7/31/2012.

The sandbox is 12m long and 2.4m wide. It’s in a container with windows and air conditioner.
It’s one of the activities of Fukushima reconstruction project by Children’s environment academic meeting.
The atmospheric dose outside of the container was not published.



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.
