I visited Osaka prefecture 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.
In Osaka, there is no radiation change affected by the nuclear power plant accident on March 11, 2011. We assure that all the tourists can travel around Osaka without concerning the effects by the accident.
Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan is one of the largest public aquariums in the world. It is located in the ward of Minato in Osaka, Japan, near Osaka Bay. KAIYUKAN recreates the vast Pacific Ocean and neighboring environments, so that visitors can easily follow such environments starting from Japan Forest, the northwestern part of the Pacific Ocean. We can meet a wide variety and number of animal species and plants of the Pacific Ocean exhibited in the world-leading volume capacity of 11,000 tons of water.
So I visited KAIYUKAN to see effects of the accident against 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 Osaka, 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. The influence of the contaminated water is completely blocked within Fukushima. There are no health-related problems until now 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."
As PM Abe said, Osaka is very far away from Fukushima, people in Osaka have no concern about the nuclear power plant accident. People in Osaka have already forgotten the accident, because they think radioactive materials cannot reach there.
We know there is no problem for child birth and child rearing in Osaka. So people in Osaka 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.
