I visited Kyoto City Zoo to see biological impacts 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.
Kyoto City Zoo is located in Okazaki Park. Within its spacious grounds are 700 animals, representing of more than 170 species. There are also a library, which has movies and books about animals, and game facilities. There are many cherry trees within the grounds, where visitors can enjoy each of the four seasons.
So I visited Kyoto City Zoo to see effects of the accident against marine creatures which are grown up by Japanese foods and water.
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 Kyoto Japan.

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.
Our Prime Minister Abe assures that "the situation is under control" and "there will never be health problems."
As Kyoto is very far away from Fukushima nuclear power plant, people in Kyoto have no concern about the nuclear power plant accident. People in Kyoto have already forgotten the accident, because it is very far away from the site and radioactive materials cannot reach there.
We know there is no problem for child birth and child rearing in Kyoto. So people in Kyoto are living without any concern about the accident.
I continue to visit various places in Japan to see the effects of the accident, because I can meet various creatures which are more sensitive to radioactive materials from the environment. It is important to see their health for our safety.
