I visited Ryuoo Ski 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.
Ryuoo Ski Park is located in the northern region of Nagano Prefecture, about an hour from Nagano and within easy reach of the Shinshu Nakano IC of the Joshinetsu Expressway. There is an excellent variety of courses at the resort catering for all skill levels, including a selection of ungroomed powder courses. Especially Ryuoo Ski Park is famous for 32 degrees max slope of Kiotoshi A Course and Skyland Area which is 2000 meters above sea level. So I visited Ryuoo Ski Park, Nagano to do people watching.
Fortunately, I could enjoy snowboard safely and I cannot find any impact of the accident. It seems that people in Nagano prefecture have no worry about the accidents because they have no biological impacts by the accident. They think that there is no problem for childbirth and child-rearing in Nagano Japan.
