I visited Toshimaen which is located in Tokyo 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.
Toshimaen is an amusement park in Nerima, Tokyo, Japan, owned by the Seibu Group. It has more than 30 different attractions ranging from extremely thrilling roller coasters to kiddie rides. A water park opens in the summer, featuring six different swimming zones including a popular wave pool and a lazy river.
There is an Insectarium in the amusement zone and we can see and learn about world wide insects. We can touch some species and buy them too.
So I visited there to see effects of the nuclear power plant accident against creatures which are grown up by Japanese food and water.
Fortunately, I could not find any impact of the nuclear power plant accident. It seems that there is no problem for childbirth and child-rearing in Tokyo, Japan.

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 childbirth and child rearing in Tokyo. So people in Tokyo are living without any concern about the accident.
