[Express] “0.27~0.3 μSv/h from incense sticks of a temple, made of Japanese cedar”

Introducing important tweets as [Express] for simultaneous updates.



The radiation level was 0.27 ~ 0.3 μSv/h near the smoke from the incense sticks in front of Rinnoji in Nikko. It was about 0.07 μSv/h in the parking lot nearby, where was already decontaminated. We are to have the smoke over our head etc..

The incense sticks are made of the leaves of Japanese cedar. Nikko has been a major producing region of incense sticks since long time ago. I wonder how much Bq/Kg of Cs-134/137 the ash contains. Some people have been worried about the incense sticks contamination since 2011.

<Traduction >
La radioactivité était à 0,27 ~ 0,3 μSv/h près de la fumée des bâtons d’encens devant Rinnoji de Nikko. Elle était à environ 0,07 μSv/h dans le parking d’à côté qui a été décontaminé. On a forcément de la fumée autour de nos têtes, etc.

Les bâtons d’encens sont fait avec des aiguilles de cèdre japonais. Nikko est depuis longtemps une grande région de production de bâtons d’encens. Je me demande combien il y a de Bq/kg de Cs 134/137 dans les cendres. Certains s’inquiètent de la contamination des bâtons d’encens depuis 2011.

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.
