Tokyo governor “Fukushima sea contamination doesn’t affect Tokyo as a candidate city for Olympic games in 2020”

In the press conference of 8/30/2013, Tokyo governor Inose stated the on-going sea contamination in Fukushima doesn’t affect Tokyo.

He commented regardless of the on-going sea contamination in Fukushima, the radiation levels in Tokyo (Atmosphere, Seawater surface and container surface) are the same as NY, London and Paris, so it can’t be the problem for Tokyo to stand as a candidate city for Olympic games in 2020.

He emphasized the biggest problem is the harmful rumor. Tokyo metropolitan government is uploading data on the website even in ENGLISH.



You can ignore the truth but the truth won’t ignore you.

Le gouverneur de Tokyo : “la contamination marine de Fukushima ne gêne pas la candidature de Tokyo comme ville candidate aux jeux olympiques de 2020”


Au cours d’une conférence de presse le 30 août 2013, le gouverneur de Tokyo, M. Inose, a affirmé que la contamination en cours de la mer à Fukushima n’affectait pas Tokyo.

Il a déclaré qu’en dehors de la contamination marine en cours à Fukushima, le niveau de radioactivité de Tokyo (atmosphère, eaux marines de surface et container surface) est le même qu’à New-York, Londres et Paris, donc il n’y a aucun problème pour Tokyo à se porter ville candidate pour héberger les jeux olympiques de 2020.
Il a mis en avant que le plus gros problème est celui des “rumeurs malveillantes”. Le conseil général de la métropole de Tokyo télécharge des données sur son site, y compris EN ANGLAIS.

Vous pouvez ignorer la vérité mais la vérité ne vous ignorera pas.

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.
