I visited Fuji Safari Park 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 Safari Park is a zoo where visitors can drive in their own vehicles and observe the wildlife. It is located at the south foot of Mount Fuji and about 18 km north-northwest of Mishima city.
The safari park was opened in 1980, and has the largest area among all safari parks in Japan. The Safari zone, where many animals from around the world are living Freely. Take the ”Jungle Bus” which has metal nets on the windows, and you can get right up close to the animals and even feed them. ”Animal Village” and ”Fureai Ranch” are areas where you can enjoy playing with small animals. A ”Night Safari” is available depending on the season where you can see the animals at night. There are also many activities to enjoy at this animal park.
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 there 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 Shizuoka prefecture, Japan.

We know there is no problem for child birth and child rearing in Shizuoka. So people in Shizuoka are living without any concern about the accident.
