I visited Himeji City Aquarium 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 City Aquarium is one of the only a few aquarium located on top of the mountain in Japan. It is also known as "aquarium on the mountain". It has many creatures that live in the area and have many exhibits that "you can see, hear and touch". On the roof floor, there is Jabujab creek where you can get in and play and biotope is also recommended.
This aquarium mainly show and introduce familiar creatures in Harima district, southwest part of Hyogo prefecture, Japan. These creatures are not curious and may not be beautiful. But if you observe them carefully, you can find out a lot of wonderful things in them.
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 HImeji, Hyogo 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, 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.
