Biological monitoring in Yamanashi (August 5, 2014)
Biological monitoring in Fuji-Q Highland
I visited Fuji-Q Highland 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.
Fuji-Q Highland is a major amusement park located in the Fuji Five Lakes region at the foot of Mount Fuji. One of Japan's most popular theme parks, Fuji-Q Highland is best known for its thrilling, record holding roller coasters and elaborate, anime themed rides and attractions.
There are also popular character theme-parks such as “THOMAS LAND.” Fuji-Q Highland is bound to amuse all ranges of visitors, from youths to families. Ice-skating link opens during winter and attracts many skaters.
Furthermore we can enjoy amazing views of Mt. Fuji from Fuji-Q Highland.
So I visited Fuji-Q Highland to see effects of the accident. Fortunately, I could not find any impact of the accident. It seems that there is no problem for childbirth and child-rearing in Yamanashi prefecture, Japan.

3 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. 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, Yamanashi prefecture is very far away from Fukushima and people in Yamanashi have no concern about the nuclear power plant accident. People in Yamanashi 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 Yamanashi. So people in Yamanashi 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.
