Sendai Umino Mori Aquarium
Sendai Umino-Mori Aquarium
Let's go to the Umino-Mori Aquarium where life shines!
An aquarium has appeared here in Sendai where marine life shines, and marine organisms provide excitement and dreams; where they cause people who experience them to smile; and where both ocean life and visitors shine.
The aquarium stands out for highlighting the coastal environment of Miyagi Prefecture. It lets visitors see below the sea’s surface and understand how oysters live, how they are farmed as well as the many local fish this region is famous for. Near the entrance is a main attraction, a massive tank featuring a rare blue shark and a circling school of sardines.(see also)

About 5 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 nuclear power plant 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, Miyagi prefecture is just next to Fukushima prefecture, people in Miyagi have no concern about the nuclear power plant accident. People in Miyagi 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 Miyagi. So people in Miyagi are living without any 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.
