I visited Shinobazu Pond (Shinobazu-no-ike), Ueno 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.
Ueno Park, also known as Ueno Kōen, is a beautiful public park located near the Ueno Station in central Tokyo.
Nestled in the heart of Tokyo, the Ueno district has remained relatively unchanged for hundreds of years despite the modernization of the city around it. The park itself has been in existence since the Edo period where it was originally part of a temple that held close ties with the local feudal lords. The temple itself was destroyed by the Boshin War in the mid-19th century, but the park remained relatively untouched.
In the middle of the park is a natural body of water known around the world as Shinobazu Pond. It is a rather large pond with a circumference of two kilometers. The pond is home to many wild birds, large carp, and turtles. Shinobazu Pond is at its most beautiful in the late summer, when it is covered in lotus flowers. The water plants provide a safe year round environment for birdlife, including up to 10,000 ducks and cormorants during the winter. The pond is a must see for any bird watcher.
So I visited Shinobazu Pond to see effects of the accident against creatures which are grown up by Japanese food and water.

About 4 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, 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.
