I visited Inokashira Park Zoo to see the effects of Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident. I could see "Koyo" there. "Koyo" means autumn foliage or red leaves in Japanese. When autumn comes, maple leaves turn to red. Japanese call it "Koyo". There are some trees which make their leaves yellow. If you see it you will say "How beautiful it is!"
At the Park Zoo I could see a lot of birds, animals, insects and Japanese river fish. They were fine and I couldn’t find any effects for creatures by the accident. People in Tokyo have no worry for the accident as if they have never known it.

I continue to visit to aquariums or zoo in Japan to see the effects of Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident because we can see many kinds of creatures which are fed Japanese food and living in Japanese air and water. I think they are sensitive to radioactive materials from the environment, so it is important to see their health for our safety.
