but it is in an area where radiation levels are relatively low.

Please define "relatively" here? I mean really now, building a shrine in an area that is not clear of radiation does not seem to be the wisest of moves.

I am surprised that they chose Futaba town, which is not far from the crippled plant. The people from the town are living outside of the town, and most of them (60%) do not want to go back.

All radiation levels in Futaba are above government limits and more than two thirds of the area will be off limits for decades. Better to build it in a place that is both easy and safe to visit.

Human levels. But thank you for your support for my cause. I know you support NPP from posts, and I think it is good to find the solution to problems. I have some good experiences with people in Fukushima and the surrounding prefectures. We have to help each other.

You are 100% incorrect on every point. I don't support your cause and I don't even know what your cause is.

The reason I started posting on JT was because of the 2011 Tohoku disasters, and especially the nuclear disaster. I made hundreds of posts about it and the reasons why nuclear energy should not be used. Long term JT posters can testify on my posts. Unfortunately, most were deleted for some reason.

But I did and do my best to base my posts on facts rather than just heresy and conspiracy nonsense. The same post were picked up by Reuters and published on their site. More than 100 of them. I also published them on another site, nowpublic which also earned them a media award.

The fact is the radiations levels in Futaba according to measurements taken by Greenpeace and also Safecast are above the limit of 20 millisievert per year, and in the hot spots even 10 microsieverts per hour.

There are still many of my posts in the archives on the nuclear disaster and TEPCO, go and read them first.
