I visited Kumamoto prefecture to see effects of Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant accident. Though I have visited various places in Japan to see the health consequence of the accident, I have never found any effect against creatures in Japan.
Kumamoto prefecture is located in "Kyushu" which is southernmost of the four main islands of Japan. Kumamoto is very away from Fukushima, and the kind of danger that you imagine does not exist in Kumamoto.
Japanese think that foods of Kyushu have never contaminated by radioactive materials by the accident. So Kyushu grown foods such as, vegetables, fruits, meets, fish and so on are widely consumed by Japanese.
So I think it is important to see creatures of Kyushu for the food safety.

2 years have passed since Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident. I have visited various places of Japan to see the health consequence of the accident. Fortunately I have never found any impacts by the accident among Japanese creatures. As far as I know, nobody has health problem which is caused by the accident in Japan.
