“How my body is.” (Mochizuki Iori’s daily column from Japan – August 17, 2011)

Mochizuki Cheshire Iori A Civil Engineer (27 years old) living in Yokohama. Also exports Japanese pop culture goods. Fukushima Diary is his daily summary of events as they unfold, also his picks from Japanese media and other social media.. Readers can catch up with him on DiaNuke.org’s Facebook group.


I have been in Japan,and spending days almost normally since 311. Sometimes I was outside,sometimes I was inside of house. I would like to analyze how a 27 years old man’s body is now.

Basic info;
Weight;50kg, Slim
Blood type;A
Asian 27 years old, male
In Yokohama(about 250km from Fukushima)

No diarrhea,skin and hair looks the same.no fatigue.no bleeding. Fingers have been feeling numb since 2 weeks ago.According to echo screening,the right side of my thyroid is swollen,which has not been observed last year. Since April ,my eyes feel sore,especially when I’m outside. It’s becoming worse since 2 weeks ago. I went to an eye doctor but they didn’t find anything wrong with my eyes. It feels like when you keep your eyes opened for minutes without winking even if you use eye drop.

Since last week,I’ve been having sore throat.My skin feels sore outside as well. Air “smells” like something,but I can’t explain it specifically. I have a problem with my white blood cells. I will have a regular health check every October.We will know how it changes then.

So far,this is all.


News Reports

[Beautiful people]

4/13/2011,the next day of when they finally admitted Fukushima was level 7,Minister of economy,Kaieda and Minister of science revised the rule of subsidy to let the pro-nuc local governments receive more subsidy.
It was revised not to let anyone notice.Today Tokyo shimbum scooped it finally.

When they build a new plant(1350 thousand KW);44.9 billion yen→48.1 billion yen (3.2 billion yen up)

They also stopped paying subsidy for stopped plants,they will pay based on the past amount of power production of a plant.so local governments are given more incentive to keep plants moving and build more plants.



[A heartbreaking report]



[I wish I could have a dog]

in the clean world.

A prayer of a Fukushima child,”I wish everything would be decontaminated and I could have a puppy.”



[It has begun]

Anencephalic baby birth seems to be increasing.

pippi harada

got a phone call from my sister.She says her friend turned out to be bearing an anencephalic baby
for her 4 month maternity test.In Tokyo.

@hanayuu ママ友さんのご友人も先月無脳症の赤ちゃんを授かり堕胎しました。そのママ友さんは医療関係者なのですが、震災以降無脳症の赤ちゃんが増えてると言っていました。別の看護師さんは、大丈夫だった人が急に切迫流産になる事が増えたと。ため息しか出ません・・・

My friend,who is involved in medical industry turned out to be bearing an anencephalic baby.She decided to get an abortion. She says this case has been increasing since 311. Another nurse stated,abortion threatened has been increasing too though the mother had been totally fine.

The same situation was observed when Chernobyl happened.

Pro-nuc people,and people who still think this is hysteria. This is all your fault. Take responsibility whatever it takes.


[Killer napkin]

A napkin maker is still making napkin in Fukushima.
A consumer detected 0.15uSv/h from it ,when the room was 0.07uSv/h.
They say,sexual organ is as 30 times sensitive as other parts toward radiation.
The first picture is when they detected 0.15uSv/h
The second picture is the package of the napkin. I don’t know what brand it is because I haven’t used,but I recommend you to sort out the brand and don’t buy them.
They say,they are sold extra cheap at supermarket.



Unicharm makes napkin in factories of Fukushima.They only conduct spot checks.
Boycott their products.
@hanayuu 使用していたユニチャームの生理ナプキン、問い合わせセンターに電話したら、福島県東白川郡棚倉町の工場で作られてました。放射能検査は抜き打ちでサンプルのみしか測定なしとのこと。会社の対応も事勿れ主義で、激しい憤りを感じます。絶対、不買運動します!



[For Japanese readers]

Lawyers support you to rob tepco of compensation.
It’s hard to sue them only by yourself,but as a group,you get a power.



[Save children’s food]

A popular food brand,”Ampam man curry”.
They are manufactured in the factories in Fukushima.
Please don’t let children eat it.




In Fukushima,school still have children play outside.
1.09uSv/h beside a play ground.
It’s dusty,and windy.



[Torture for resistance]

An anti-nuc activist sketched the cell where he was put in.
No sound,no toothbrush,lighted up around the clock.No spoon,no fork.No receiving.
The cell is 2m×3m.(really small)



[They can not evacuate to Hokkaido anymore]

Tomaru genpatsu unit 3 is re-starting as of 8/17.



[Contamination is spreading further than we have ever thought]

Fukushima local court detected 186,000Bq/kg from the sludge of the side ditch in their Aizu wakamatsu branch,where is 100km far from Fukushima plants.
According to government’s regulation,they can keep the sludge in a concrete shelter if it’s 8,000Bq/kg~100,000Bq/kg,but it’s beyond the limit in this case,so they have no clue what to do with it.
They leave it there and made the area around the off-limits area.The air dose was 0.24uSv/h.



[Because nuc is safe]

Tepco did not prepare any manual to vent. They did not prepare for the risk of hydrogen explosion either. It turned out they did never do any risk management.



[Plutonium 239/240]

They detected pulutonium 239/240 in Okuma machi ,Fukushima.
Max ; 11.10 Bq/㎡

This is a very important information, so I will post it here before they delete.
I hope someone will translate it.
