Another supermarket chain, Maruetsu measured 4.6 Bq/Kg of cesium even from the peach in Yamanashi prefecture.(Harvested on 7/18/2012) [Link] Yamanashi prefecture is 294.6km from Fukushima plant, further than Tokyo.
However, they are not only committing into marketing but also exporting it overseas.
JETRO, Japan External Trade Organization announced they are going to invite the buyers of the departments, supermarkets and restaurant chains in Thailand to support Fukushima farmers from 8/7 to 8/10. It is an attempt to export Fukushima peach for the first time after 311. Since Taiwan stopped importing agricultural products from Fukushima, their products have not been exported from Japan.
They are focusing on Thailand because they accept it only with the document to prove radiation measurement result. For the beginning, they are going to invite 4 companies of importers and major retailers. [Link]
On 8/8/2012, they even presented 180 of Fukushima peaches to imperial family.
The peaches were harvested in Kori machi Fukushima, where is only 66km away from Fukushima plant.
They packed the peaches in that town too. (66km from Fukushima plant)
The local Japan Agricultural Cooperatives comments the price of the peaches are only 70~80%.
They think it’s because of harmful rumor and it can be solved by having Imperial family consume them.
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.
