From  Mimi German, the head of Radcast​ in Portland, Oregon, USA:
Latest from RadCast Labs… not surprised to find Cesium134 and Cesium 137 in soil samples from Nakano, Tokyo.

Tokyo is 240 kms South of Fukushima Daiichi…
RadCast received samples of soil from Nakano, Tokyo which clearly showed both Cesium 137 and Cesium 134. This sample is from July 2015. We have 476 Bq/kg

  1. Nagano is in the opposite side of the island, meanwhile, it isn’t even on the pacific ocean side! this has a lot of implication, the wind should had gone ahead of the hills to get there!!! Tokyo has no hills between it and Fukushima!! Situation should be worse there!!!

    • Wait, I am contacting Radcast head about this, because their article is unclear, not precise, confusing.
      In the title they mentioned Nakano with a K, then later in the little text they say Nagano with a G.
      They don’t precise which city, or which prefecture…And that is very confusing fo me, for my friends living in Japan and for Japanese.

      Nakano with a K is the name of a district in Tokyo city, Nakano is also the name of district in many towns, cities….
      It is also the name of a small town in the North of Nagano prefecture,

      They should precise the name of the city and the name of the prefecture to make it clear and precise.
      As an example: The samples are from Iwaki city in Fukushima prefecture,

      The way it is written it in this article, it is unclear, unprecise and very confusing, as there are many places in Japan having the same name.

      Furthermore in many places of Eastern Japan if you get some soil samples below the rainpipe of any house, 200 to 600 bq / kg is quite common nowdays.So this find is just a good average

  2. Ok, Radcast has corrected the confusion, those samples are from Nakano district of Tokyo city. Not Nagano which was a typo in their text.
