Approx. 60 mushrooms were found emitting pale blue light in Taihaku ward of Sendai.

These were growing on a dead tree. The diameter of a cap was about 1cm.


Professor Hirai from Koriyama Women’s University & College comments it looks like Mycena chlorophos, which is seen in the islands of offshore Pacific.

He states if it was really Mycena chlorophos, that’s really rare to see in Northern area of Japan.


The specific sort of these mushrooms is not identified.

Dans le district de Taihaku de Sendai on a découvert une soixantaine de champignons luminescents bleu pale.
Ils poussaient sur un arbre mort. Le diamètre du carpophore (chapeau) est d’environ 1 cm.

Le Pr Hirai de l’Université & Collège pour filles de Koriyama déclare qu’ils ressemblent à des Mycena chlorophos, une espèce qu’on trouve dans les îles lointaines du Pacifique.
Il affirme qu’il s’agit bien de Mycena chlorophos qui est vraiment rare dans les régions du nord du Japon.

L’espèce exacte de ces champignons-là n’est néanmoins pas établie.

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.
