[Column] Back from Svalbard last night

I’m making my opponents happy, but I’m just being exhausted.

Soon I’ll be fine.


I came back from the North Pole last night. It takes me 2 days because they have to stay one night at Oslo.


I rushed back to Romania to renew my visa. It’s becoming too late to renew soon.

but another technical problem came up, couldn’t submit the document today.

This is probably the 4th or 5th attempt.


This is also why I researched Svalbard.


Besides, I’m aggressively updating the Svalbard research page on Facebook and Tumblr, which are started mostly for Japanese people.


I spent most of the time of my visit on researching tax system, social warfare and the medical situation.


I was almost the first one ever to look into the matter. Even the local council didn’t exactly know how it is supposed to go. I brought them the very first case in history. lol


Yet I managed to reassure the Japanese people who may follow me, I think.

Still I have loads of material to post on those pages.


Soon I’ll come back to both of the main part and Svalbard part. Please be patient while I’m restoring my energy.



I reject the international mass media to read this site without taking a contact with me.I know some of the mass media corporations read Fukushima Diary to understand the trend so they know when to report about Fukushima as if they were independently following it for a long time.
In short, they make you individual readers pay for this site while they pay nothing, and when they publish the “authorized news”, you pay for the “secondhand news”, which is nothing new for us.
This site is free for the individual readers, but not for corporations.In the world, this site is nearly the only source about Fukushima. I came here alone without any supporting organizations, background or anything. I’m not pleased to be exploited by the corporations that didn’t even properly report about Fukushima when 311 took place.

I demand them to take a contact with me BEFORE reading this site whatever the purpose is.

[Édito] De retour de Svalbard depuis la nuit dernière
Note : Si vous êtes de la grande presse internationale, ne lisez pas ce site sans avoir préalablement pris contact avec moi.


Je vais rendre heureux ceux qui me détestent, je suis complètement épuisé.
Ça va aller très vite mieux.

Je suis revenu du pole Nord la nuit dernière. Ça a pris deux jours parce que j’ai du rester une nuit à Oslo.

Je me suis précipité en Roumanie pour renouveler mon visa. Ça va bientôt être trop tard pour les renouvèlements.
mais il y a eu un autre problème technique, je n’ai pas pu leur remettre le document aujourd’hui.
C’est au moins la 4 ou 5e tentative.

C’est aussi à cause de ça que j’ai exploré Svalbard.

Par ailleurs, Je tiens frénétiquement à jour la page de recherche de Svalbard sur Facebook et Tumblr, lesquelles sont principalement pour les japonais.

J’ai passé l’essentiel du temps de ma visite à me documenter sur leur système d’imposition et les affaires sociales et médicales.

J’étais pratiquement le tout premier à explorer le sujet. Même le conseil municipal local ne savait pas exactement comment c’est supposé marcher. Je leur ai posé le tout premier cas de leur histoire. lol

Déjà, j’ai réussi à rassurer les japonais intéressés à me suivre, je crois.
Il me reste toujours des tonnes de choses à publier sur ces pages.

Je vais bientôt revenir à la fois sur la partie principale et sur celle de Svalbard.
Merci d’être patients en attendant que je me récupère.

J’interdis à la grande presse internationale de lire et d’utiliser ce site sans préalablement prendre contact avec moi. Je sais que certaines grandes sociétés de presse lisent le Fukushima Diary pour comprendre la tendance et trouver quand rendre compte de la situation de Fukushima comme s’ils la suivaient indépendamment depuis longtemps.
En résumé, ils vous font payer à vous, simples lecteurs, ce qu’ils prennent gratuitement dans ce site et lorsqu’ils publient des “nouvelles de première main” vous payez pour des “nouvelles resucées”, qui n’ont rien de nouveau pour nous.
Ce site est gratuit pour les lecteurs individuels, pas pour les sociétés. Ce site est pratiquement la seule source au monde sur Fukushima. Je viens ici seul sans aucun soutien d’organisation quelconque, ni références, ni rien. Je n’apprécie pas de me faire exploiter par ces sociétés qui n’ont même pas été foutues de relater correctement ce qui se passait à Fukushima quand a eu lieu le mois de mars 2011.

Je leur demande de prendre contact avec moi AVANT de lire ce site dans quelque but que ce soit.

  1. Hi Iori,i have been reading your posts about nuclear things in Fukushima and recently Svalbard.My name is Ma,its not my full name so since i want to keep my name in secret for now.I am 24,male,that’s all of it.
    Actually i do live in Norway for more than 1 year.If its hard to move to Svalbard,just move to Norway then.Visa is hardest thing for you,because its same as in Japan you need to get sponsored a whole work contract by employer.Depends of degree what you have,however in Norway it works differently you need to know or speak language,then degree goes.Unless its high job post.
    If you ask me have i been to Svalbard?My answer -.Maybe one day i could go,but it has to interest somehow.If you have some money to spend just try to get work,i think it would be easier for you to get even free accommodation and since Norwegian social welfare is best in the world.
    You can look at http://www.prosperity.com
    You could go to Svalbard for vacation and i know even Norwegians rarely goes to Svalbard.Its more for people who like skiing or tourism in mountains.However,Svalbard is one of the most safest place and Unesco heritage site.Research,coal mining,tourism are main fields as far as i know
    Also,i think you should be more positive about Japan.I have been recently in Japan and in total i have been three times,everything depends of attitude.Even Lin Ching Yuen oldest man admitted that his secret of longevity was calm mind,he used gotu kola 2 leafs per day and goji berries.

    Regards.I hope we can get to know each other,somehow everytime i visit your news,i feel that i should write post in here,well here it is after all.
    If you are interested just to talk let me know.Also it interests me what are you talking to Japanese people about Svalbard and what things you are mentioning in
    And officer that you have mentioned,i think he knows its very hard without any work to get visa.For me i am European national,so rules are a bit easier to stay in Norway or Svalbard indefinite.Needless to say,i live in much more smaller place in Norway than Svalbard.Also the place where i live is near Sogn fjord or fjord that is longest in the world.Also tap water is better in Norway than bottle water.I guess i shared enough,you can see my e-mail address when logging in control panel of this website perhaps,so i hope you can reply.


  2. Thanks you for getting rid of your disclaimer! Now I can read the first few lines of your articles again. My thoughts and financial support are with U. Also, telling your personal story as you are is endearing you way beyond offenses of the media by plagiarizing your work. The few other reporters are mirroring your work every day.

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.
