Hello,friends.
I write this blog to you
who livin’ over the sea,another country.

Have you ever seen like such a picture?

This is a display of our radiational instrument.
Can you see the graph?
It shows how Japan is contaminated,not whole but partly.

In March 2013,
We measured a filter of a car.
It was used by one of our volunteer staff,
She lived around KANTO ;region around Tokyo,
and her husband went often to TOHOKU;north region around Fukushima
by driving the car.

His wife,our staff,wanted to know if the car was contaminated by radiation.
We wanted to do so,too.
The filter of the car should draw the air of TOHOKU region.

At that time,in 2013,
it showed terrible contamination,
about 1,500 becquerel /1kg; gamma rays of Cs-134 and 137.

After one year,
we measured it again.
we want to know whether radiation is more less by passing time.

The fact was as we had feared.

Only a little decreased,
but it has remaind.
It showed about 1,300 becquerel /1kg; gamma rays of Cs-134 and 137.

This is unimaginable contamination as ordinary life.

We do know the contamination has remainds.
It was real Japan we living.

What should we do?
The first thing is to KNOW THE FACT,
and let know other people,
livin’ another country just like you.

We’ll continue to struggle.

we mesureing radioactivity in Japan now.

Hello,friends.
I think you reading this blog,
living whole over the world.

You know,
the terrible accident,
Fukushima Nuclear Power Plants in March 11 2011.

after then,
we are citizens living in Nara prefecture,
talked about what we should do.
and decided buy a measuring instrument
to know our foods are contaminated or not.

but we don’t have enough money,techniques, and knowledge.
and we started to study about radiation,
request funds and so on.
we requested help to many people at many place.

Finally,
we were so lucky,
our representative Makoto Tsujimoto
have very nice friend who is a doctor Norio Irie,
has studied depleted Uranium bombs,
and knew well dangerous of Neclear.
He lent us a room and gave many help.

we could start our work in March 2013,
and named “Nara CRMS”.
CRMS is “citizen’s radioactivity measuring station”.

we had measured many foods,soils,and so on.

I am a volunteer at Nara CRMS.
I’m going to write sometime about our works.
I hope you’d like this,and will be useful for you.

my name is “Bud”,a woman,have a son aged 16.
See you soon♩
