Interview me

I had a great interview with Ms. Libbe HaLevy from Nuclear Hotseat.

You can listen to it here.


Download here:

Interview with Iori Mochizuki, blogger behind Fukushima Diary, on his journey from “normal person” to Japanese evacuee and citizen of the world… with a little help from his Internet friends. Fascinating insights as to what the future may bring to Japan, including forced conscription, and what it’s like to be aware and to escape the dangers while one’s parents remain behind.

I hope you to enjoy it.

Personally, I’m not ready to listen to it because I’m too embarrassed.

Thank you for your donation.

I’m starting to used to the life in NY, at least I learnt how to use the US style coin laundry.

Everything is expensive like crazy here, but I’m learning some tips.

Because one dish is huge here, I only need to eat 2 meals a day. Sometimes only once is enough, seriously.

and I bought clothes today. I always wanted throw away all the clothes that I brought from Japan because they touched rain.

I bought used ones, they are not very flashy, but very cheap. I don’t need to look super cool.

On m’interviewe

J’ai eu un super interview avec Mme Libbe HaLevy de Nuclear Hotseat.

Malheureusement, je n’ai pas pu poster le MP3 ici mais vous pouvez l’écouter en suivant le lien ci-dessous :



Interview de M. Iori Mochizuki, bloggueur du Fukushima Diary, sur son  chemin de “personne normale” à réfugié japonais et citoyen du monde… avec un peu d’aide de ses amis d’Internet. Une perspicacité fascinante sur ce que le futur pourrait apporter au Japon, conscription obligatoire incluse et à quoi ressemble d’y être attentif et de fuir les dangers alors que ses parents restent derrière.

J’espère que ça vous plaît.

Personnellement, je ne suis pas encore disposé à l’écouter parce que ça me gêne trop.

Merci pour vos dons.

Je commence à m’habituer à la vie à NY, j’ai au moins appris comment marche les laveries automatiques payantes des USA.

Tout est effroyablement cher ici, mais j’apprends quelques trucs.

Parce qu’un repas est lourd ici, je n’en fais que deux par jour. Parfois un seul me suffit, vraiment.

et j’ai acheté des habits aujourd’hui. J’ai toujours voulu me débarrasser de tous les habits que j’ai achetées au Japon parce qu’ils ont été touchés par la pluie.

J’ai acheté d’occasion, ils ne sont pas très voyants mais pas chers du tout. Je n’ai pas besoin d’avoir un look super cool.

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.
