[Express] “Sightseeing place possibly accumulates radiation from tourists’ shoes”

Introducing important tweets as [Express] for simultaneous updates.



Shockingly, the atmospheric dose was 0.09 μSv/h in the hotel room of Kyoto. I wonder if it’s carried by the shoes of the tourists from all around Japan and the carpet accumulates it. It was about 0.05 ~ 0.06μSv/h outside.

De façon choquante, dans la chambre de l’hôtel de Kyoto la dose dans l’air ambiant était de 0,09 μSv/h. Je me demande si c’est apporté par les chaussures des touristes de tout le japon et accumulé dans la moquette. C’était autour de 0,05 ~ 0,06 μSv/h dehors.

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.
