I visited SHINAGAWA AQUARIUM 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.
SHINAGAWA AQUARIUM shows that a waterfall cascades into a mountain stream, becomes a river, and then flows into the Tokyo Bay. You will be able to observe these recreated scenes, the tidal flats and rocky shores of the Tokyo Bay, and the creatures that inhabit them. We can see not only Japanese creatures but also those of the world. There is also a stadium where you can enjoy dolphin shows and sea lion shows.
So I visited SHINAGAWA AQUARIUM to see effects of the accident against marine creatures which are grown up by Japanese food 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 Tokyo Japan.
