I visited ZOORASIA YOKOHAMA ZOOLOGICAL GARDENS 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.
This unique zoo employs as few fences as possible so that visitors can see the animals living in an environment similar to their natural habitat. The zoo is divided into zones of different climates such as Asian Tropical Forest, Subarctic Forest, Amazon Jungle, Japanese Countryside and African Tropical Rain Forest. There is also a grass park and the "Wanpaku Forest" with play equipment. The zoo also includes a closed facility, Yokohama City Breeding Center, which was founded with the purpose of researching wildlife and contributing to the preservation of rare species.
So I visited ZOORASIA YOKOHAMA ZOOLOGICAL GARDENS to see effects of the accident against animals 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.

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.
