I visited Universal Studios Japan to see biological impacts of Fukushima No.1 nuclear power plant accident. Though I have visited various places in Japan to see the health consequences of the accident, I have never found any effect against creatures in Japan.
Universal Studios Japan is one of the biggest amusement parks of Japan. Universal Studios Japan located in Osaka Prefecture. Osaka Prefecture is divided into 33 cities, 9 towns, and 1 village. Covering an area of approximately 1,899 square kilometers, or only 0.5% of the nation's entire land area, Osaka is the second smallest prefecture. However, it has a population of 8.8 million, or roughly 7% of the entire population, making it the third most populous prefecture after Tokyo and Kanagawa prefectures.
So I visited Universal Studios Japan for people watching. Fortunately, I couldn't find any impact of the accident. It seems that there is no problem for childbirth and child-rearing in Osaka prefecture, Japan.
