I visited Epson Aqua Stadium 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.
Epson Aqua Stadium shows us nearly 10,000 of the world's sea creatures from nearly 350 species. We can enjoy an underwater stroll in the sea 20-meter submarine tunnel. This is the only aquarium in the world displaying dwarf sawfish.
The magnificent performances of the dolphins will enthrall you. Be sure to see all of the dolphins' twenty different techniques.
Generally speaking, animal's growth is so fast than human beings that they are more sensitive to radioactive materials of the environment than us. So I visited The Epson Aqua Stadium 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 Tokyo Japan.
