Japanese people visit a shrine on January in order to make traditional New Year's wishes for health and happiness. This is called Hatsumode, the first visit to a shrine. So I visited Meiji Jingu which is a Shinto shrine too.
I wish Japan to be Land of Hope and Safety, Mother of the Accidents Free!
After the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident, I continue to try to find the consequence of the accident against creatures in Tokyo and surrounding prefectures. At the moment, I find no biologocal impacts against Tokyo and neighbor prefectures.

At the main shrine buildings, people make wishes for their health and happiness.
