These are the photos I took in Fukushima this Monday August 19th. Kids cooling off from the summer heat in the sea. I have to admit I was pretty jealous, as it looked like a lot of fun. Yet the same day Tokyo Electric Power Co. admitted that 300 tons of radioactive water from the Fukushima Nuclear Plant Disaster had leaked into the ground, but claimed none had leaked into the Pacific! Today, however they have raised the Severity Level from Level 1 to Level 3 on the International scale! In addition they have admitted they have not tracked where the groundwater goes!
