Tama Zoological Park, one hour from central Tokyo by train, is a unique zoological park, where animals are displayed under naturalistic and spectacular habitats set up in its vast land of 52 ha (129 acres). The zoo has three ecological areas, i.e., the Asiatic Garden, African Garden and Australian Garden, and the Insectarium. Tama Zoological Park can show us many baby animals who were born in Tokyo after the accident. Generally speaking, animal's growth is so fast than human beings that they are more sensitive to radioactive materials of the environment than us.
So I visited Tama Zoological Park to see effects of the accident against animal's babies which eat Japanese foods.
Fortunately, I could see them grown up safely and I couldn't find any impact of the accident. It seems that there is no problem for childbirth and child-rearing in Tokyo Japan.
