I visited Aburatsubo Marine Park 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 consequences of the accident, I have never found any effect against creatures in Japan.
The Aburatsubo Marine Park Aquarium are located on the southwest tip of the Miura Peninsula, Kanagawa prefecture, Japan. Every inch of The Leisure Land and aquarium is packed with fun things to do. Each area of the park is home to a variety of animals and unique exhibits and displays.
Just some of the attractions include the "SAKANA-NO-KUNI, Aquarium," permanent home to a variety of large sharks, the all-weather indoor ocean theater known as the "FANTASIUM, indoor theater" the "MIURA-SIZENKAN," with its variety of animals from the Miura Peninsula and the "MISAKI-MAGURO RESTAURANT Log Terrace," where you can dine on the famous misaki tuna!
You can also find the "IRUKA-NO-POOL, Dolphin Pool," "ASHIKA-JIMA, Sea Lion Island" and "PENGUIN-JIMA, Penguin Island," home to cute penguins.
At the large indoor Fantasium marine theater, visitors can enjoy performances featuring popular sea creatures such as dolphins and sea lions
Generally speaking, marine 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 Aburatsubo Marine Park Aquarium to see effects of the accident against 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 Kanagawa prefecture, Japan.

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, Kanagawa Prefecture is very far away from Fukushima, people in there have no concern about the nuclear power plant accident. People in there have already forgotten the accident, because they think radioactive materials cannot reach there.
We know there is no problem for childbirth and child rearing in Kanagawa Prefecture. So people in there have no 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.
