I visited Enoshima 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 consequences of the accident, I have never found any effect against creatures in Japan.
Enoshima Aquarium is located in Fujisawa, Kanagawa Prefecture, near Shonan's Sagami Bay. It has beautiful views of the floating island of Enoshima and Mt. Fuji, making it an ideal place to exhibit the diversity of Sagami Bay's environment and world-class research on the region's marine wildlife. Enoshima Aquarium shows us not only various kinds of marine creatures but also entertains people with marine animal shows.
So I visited Enoshima 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 Kanagawa Japan.

2 and a half 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.
Our Prime Minister Abe assures that "the situation is under control" and "there will never be health problems." He also said that "Tokyo is 250 kilometers away from Fukushima, and the kind of danger that you imagine does not exist in Tokyo. Tokyo is a very safe city."
Kanagawa is very far away from Fukushima as well as Tokyo, people in Kanagawa have no concern about the nuclear power plant accident. People in Kanagawa have already forgotten the accident, because it is very far away from Fukushima and radioactive materials cannot reach there.
We know there is no problem for child birth and child rearing in Kanagawa. So people in Kanagawa 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.
