67,886 Bq/Kg of Cs-134/137 measured from elementary school soil in Fujisawa city / 300 km from Fukushima plant

High level of radioactive material is measured from soil in an elementary school of Kanagawa prefecture.

It’s Konan elementary school in Fujisawa city Kanagawa. The distance from Fukushima nuclear plant is approx. 300km (The map is below).


The sample is the soil removed for school area decontamination. The reading was 64,281 Bq/Kg including water. The density is assumed to increased to 67,886 Bq/Kg when it’s dry.

This is 678 times much as safety limit of food. The analysis result was published on 4/8/2013.

67 886 Bq/kg de césium au sol d’une école primaire de Fujisawa / à 300 km de la centrale de Fukushima


On relève une radioactivité intense au sol d’une école primaire de la préfecture de Kanagawa.

Il s’agit de  l’école primaire de Konan dans la commune de Fujisawa, dans Kanagawa. La distance à la centrale nucléaire de Fukushima est d’environ 300 km (carte ci-dessous).

L’échantillon provient du sol retiré par la décontamination de l’école. Le relevé est de 64 281 Bq/kg sur l’extrait humide. La radioactivité de l’extrait sec équivalent est calculée à 67 886 Bq/kg.
C’est 678 fois la limite de sécurité alimentaire. Les résultats de l’analyse ont été publiés le 8 avril 2013.

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.
