Tokyo Odaiba held snow festival with 50 tonnes of Fukushima snow

From 2/16 to 2/17/2014, Odaiba in Minato ku Tokyo held snow festival with Fukushima originated snow.

It was planned by the local residents for 160 years anniversary of Odaiba. 50 tonnes snow was transferred by 5 dump trucks from Yanaizu machi Fukushima.

The residents made “slides” on the snow so the children can play with them.


Yanaizu machi was defined as “the specific contamination investigative region” in February 2012 by Ministry of the Environment. The atmospheric dose was over 0.23 μSv/h in the whole town.



Downplay it in the beginning, and quietly add more information so nobody notices it. All for not letting the cattle escape. This is their strategy.

Odaiba de Tokyo a tenu son festival de la neige avec 50 tonnes de neige de Fukushima


Les 16 et 17 février 2014, le Odaiba de Minato ku dans Tokyo a tenu un festival de la neige avec de la neige provenant de Fukushima.
Il a été organisé par les habitants pour l’anniversaire des 160 ans de Odaiba. 50 tonnes de neige ont été apportées avec des camions-poubelle depuis Yanaizu machi, de Fukushima.
Les habitants ont fait des “tranches” de neige avec, de façon à ce que les enfants puissent jouer avec.

Yanaizu machi a été définie comme “région d’investigation spécifique de la radioactivité” en février 2012 par le Ministère de l’Environnement. La dose ambiante dépassait les 0,23 μSv/h dans toute la ville.

Le minimiser au début et ajouter tranquillement de nouvelles information pour que personne ne le remarque. Tout pour que le troupeau ne s’échappe pas. C’est leur stratégie.

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.
