I visited Himeji Central Park which are located in Hyogo prefecture to see biological impacts of Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident. Though I have visited various places in Japan to see the health consequence of the accident, I can find no effect against creatures in Japan.
Himeji Central Park is a theme park with a safari park, amusement park, swimming pools, and skating link. It has a nickname of “Himesen”.
Himeji Central Park has the only safari park in the Kansai region, where visitors are able to view the animals in their natural environment. There is a drive-through safari that allows you to drive around the animal’s habitat. Then, there’s the walking safari that lets you meet the animals face to face. Finally, there’s the sky safari which takes you up in the sky to watch the wildlife from a ropeway. Visitors can also see rare animals such as white lions and white tigers in the park.
In the amusement park, there are many rides that children can enjoy such as “Diablo”, a roller coaster that you hang from the rail, “Free fall”, a ride you fall straight down from 35m above, and 85m high Ferris wheel.
In the summer, a large scaled resort pool “Aquarea” opens with a “river pool” that is 260m around and “surfing downhill” where you slide down on a surfboard from a hill. In the winter, an ice skate link called “Ice Park” located in a white building “Kaze no 0 jo”.
So I visited there 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 Hiroshima 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, Hyogo 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 Hyogo 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.
