[1st media coverage] A JP major newspaper reported Japanese moving abroad due to Fukushima accident increasingly

On 6/12/2013, a major newspaper company, Tokyo Shimbun reported Japanese people are moving abroad as “long-stay”. [Article]

The article says those Japanese people have been significantly increasing since 311. They also referred to an evacuee from Fukushima disaster area.

It’s been over 2 years since 311. As long as Fukushima Diary knows, this is the first media coverage about the fact that Japanese are moving abroad increasingly due to Fukushima nuclear accident.

Tokyo shimbun has the 5~6 st largest share in Japan.

None of the other major newspaper companies covered this news for some reason.



Do you know why this is not on TV ?

[1ère couverture médiatique] Un grand journal japonais rapporte qu’il y a de plus en plus de gens partant à l’étranger à cause de l’accident de Fukushima


Le 12 juin 2013, un major de la presse, le Tokyo Shimbun, rapporte que les japonais déménagent à l’étranger “pour une longue durée”. [Article]

L’article dit que le nombre de ces japonais est en augmentation continue depuis le 11-3. Ils font également référence à un réfugié de la région de la catastrophe de Fukushima.
On est à 2 ans du 11 mars 2011. Pour autant que le Fukushima Diary puisse le savoir, c’est la première fois qu’on assiste à une couverture médiatique du fait que de plus en plus de japonais déménagent à l’étranger à cause de l’accident nucléaire de Fukushima.

Le Tokyo Shimbun est en 5 ou 6e position au Japon.
Aucun des autres majors de la grande presse ne couvre cette information.

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.
