There is no discussion in Japanese media about radiation in Tokyo.
This problem does not exist. Tokyo is clean.
Is that right?
Few weeks ago I went to Fukushima prefecture to photograph recently opened towns (located within 20 km from Fukushima crippled nuclear power plant) which remained closed since Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident in 2011.
The true is that those the most polluted towns (Namie, Futaba…) has been opened to residents but for other people and also during the night, towns remained closed for too hight radiation. Some other towns like Tomiyoka has been opened even during night but those are scary ghost towns with no residents.
After I returned to Tokyo, I was curious to see reading in Tokyo, place where I live (Katsushika-ku) and it quite surprised me. Right in front of my agency office the reading was 2,645 microSv/hr! (I was criticized that I did not measured the radiation 1 meter above the ground as methodology says. Well, I did it proposally, because children play here every day and they are digging holes and play with soil, so I was interested how much I will get near the ground….)
Two snaps bellow is my answer on question whether Tokyo is clean.
I will continue to measure some other parts of Tokyo and other locations in Japan to get an image…..
