I visited Tokyo Tower Aquarium to see biological impacts of Fukushima No.1 nuclear power plant accident. Though I have visited various places in Japan to see the health consequence of the accident, I have never found any effect against creatures in Japan.
Tokyo Tower Aquarium, founded in 1978, is the first aquarium of the unique aquarium fish collection. It exists in the Foot Town of Tokyo Tower. Beautiful and rare fish, salt water tropical fish are classified according to their original habitats: North and South Americas, Europe, Africa, Asia, Oceania and Japan. As one of the largest aquariums in the world, it is the home of some 50,000 fish in 900 different species. The 500 square meter glass tank is displayed in a spacious 825 square meter aquarium. Admire the beautiful varieties of shapes and colors of fish while calming music plays in the background.
So I visited Tokyo Tower Aquarium to see effects of the accident against water 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.

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