Tokyo Residents: Don’t Touch the Black or Blue Dirt

Fukushima has been decimated by radiation.

But Fukushima City has less than 300,000 residents.  And all of Fukushima prefecture has 2 million.  On the other hand, greater Tokyo – the world’s largest megacity – has 35 million inhabitants.

Tokyo soil has been blanketed by Fukushima radiation, even though the Japanese capital is 170 miles from the Fukushima nuclear complex.

Now, substances with even higher levels of radiation are showing up around Tokyo.

Minamisoma city council member Koichi Oyama writes:

People in Tokyo, the black substance is here!

***

Please, people who live around, look at that!

***

It’s on the roof, on the asphalt, on concrete… Everywhere on all surfaces.

“Almost every part where is black”.

“Those black substances have fallen away and because of the rain water it accumulates underfoot”.

“I think 1 micro is almost 100000 becquerels~, 1 second α,β,γ Ray 100 needles~”.

“Never touch them with naked hands”.

What is he talking about?

City council member Koichi filmed black “dirt” on the ground in various areas of Tokyo, showing very high radiation levels.

For example, here’s Tokyo University last month:


Tokyo University Hospital:


Blue dirt at Sano SA


Blue dirt at Shinozaki Garden in Edogawa District


Blue dirt in front of National Printing Bureau in Kita District

Radioactive black substances have previously been found all over Japan, including on roads, near schools and other locations. Indeed, some of the highest radiation readings ever found in Japan come from such black substances.

Many in Japan are claiming that certain types of algae or bacteria are attracted to the radiation, and that the organisms are turning the radioactive substances black or blue. Some bacteria do use radiation as “food”, and some algae do selectively “eat” cesium … a substance put out in large quantities by Fukushima.

Others claim that this is ash from Japan’s program of burning radioactive materials. Still others say that it is something coming directly from Fukushima’s crippled reactors.

Whatever it is, one thing is for certain: Tokyo residents should not touch the stuff.
