I visited Miyajima Public Aquarium which are located in Hiroshima 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.
Standing at the far western end of Miyajima's town area, the Miyajima Public Aquarium was rebuilt, greatly improved and reopened in August 2011. The aquarium’s 50 tanks house some 350 species and more than 13,000 specimens.
The aquarium introduces the sea life of the local salt and fresh waters around Miyajima, the Seto Inland Sea and seas and oceans around the globe. Among the more original displays is an example of an oyster farm, representing the large numbers of actual farms around the island of Miyajima. Oysters are a local specialty of Hiroshima Prefecture. This is the only aquarium where you can see an oyster farm exhibition.
So I visited there to see effects of the accident against marine 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, Hiroshima 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 Hiroshima 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.
