A park in Fukushima : Do not bring children here the age of elementary school or less.

Akemi , a mother of Fukushima voluntarily evacuated to Kyoto, more than 500 km.

She took the following photos during a visit to his parents’ house in March 2013.

The fallout from the accident are called ” radiation environment” as if they were natural .

There are differences between the official level of radiation in the air after decontamination and levels detected by personal dosimeter .


Users of the park:

– Do not stay more than an hour a day in the park

– Wash your hands, face and gargle after your visit

This is the park where the sign is placed . Akemi said similar signs are installed in three neighboring parks his parents’ house .

The sandbox is covered with a blue tarp weighted .

Akemi tells us that it was a green park. She had sent his son to Kyoto first , but while she was visiting him in Kyoto for a week in August 2012, the green park area has been transformed into platform game .

Was it a part of the decontamination work ?

Every day a child through the park on the way to school .

In each park displayed on the official level radiation after decontamination.

The measure in this park was made March 11, 2013 : the level in the air was posted 0.186 Sv / h .

However, the Radex Akemi displays 0.49 Sv / h , more than 2.5 times the official level.
