Tokyo Hit With Fukushima

extraordinarily high level of radiation was detected in one
spot in a central Tokyo residential district Thursday,
prompting the local government to cordon off the small area,
local officials said.
Radiation levels were higher in Tokyo’s Setagaya ward than
in the evacuation area around the badly damaged Fukushima
Daiichi nuclear plant,
according to ward Mayor Nobuto Hosaka.
shocked to see such high radiation level was detected in our
neighborhood. We cannot leave it as is,” Hosaka told
tsunami-struck Fukushima plant may not be the source of the
radiation, Hosaka said later on state television.
searching for the cause found “glass bottles in a cardboard
box” in the basement of a house in the neighborhood which
sent radiation detectors off the charts, he said on NHK.
these bottles in basement could be the cause of the high
radiation reading and we are hastily working to confirm it,”
experts are now checking what contaminated the bottles, a
Setagaya ward official told CNN, declining to be named in
line with policy.

But as the
Wall Street Journal reported yesterday:
researchers discovered high levels of radioactive material
in concentrated areas in Tokyo and Yokohama, more than 241
kilometers away from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, as
increasingly thorough tests provide a clearer picture of
just how far contamination has spread and accumulated ….
In Tokyo, a
sidewalk in Setagaya ward, in the western part of the city,
recorded radiation levels of 2.707 microsieverts per hour,
about 50 times higher than another location in Setagaya
where the ward regularly monitors radiation levels….
the local government said last month that it detected 40,200
becquerels of radioactive cesium per kilogram of sediments
collected from one part of a roadside ditch….
investigating another spot on an apartment rooftop where
tests conducted by a local private research institute
detected more than 60,000 becquerels of radioactive cesium
per a kilogram of sediments.
also notes that these radioactive hotspots were not found
through routine tests, but only because some residents
walked around with geiger counters:
Setagaya Ward and Yokohama discovered those concentrated
spots after residents carrying their radiation measuring
devices noticed such spots and reported it to local

people relatively far from the plant could be exposed to
more dangerous elements than had been previously disclosed.
