I visited Universal Studios Japan 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.
Universal Studios Japan is one of the biggest amusement parks of Japan. Embracing a variety of areas with unique characteristics, wonderment and surprise, Universal Studios Japan covers a whole spectrum of world-class entertainment through thrilling rides and shows themed on blockbuster Hollywood movies, as well as seasonal events for all ages to enjoy.
Universal Studios Japan locats in Osaka prefecture. Osaka prefecture is divided into 33 cities, 9 towns, and 1 village. Covering an area of approximately 1,899 square kilometers, or only 0.5% of the nation's entire land area, Osaka is the second smallest prefecture. However, it has a population of 8.8 million, or roughly 7% of the entire population, making it the third most populous prefecture after Tokyo and Kanagawa prefectures.
So I visited Universal Studios Japan for people watching. Fortunately, I couldn't find any impact of the accident. It seems that there is no problem for childbirth and child-rearing in Osaka prefecture, 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, Osaka is very far away from Fukushima, people in Osaka have no concern about the nuclear power plant accident. People in Osaka 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 Osaka prefecture. So people in Osaka 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.
