Rice from Fukushima Prefecture went on sale in Tokyo over the weekend after being given the all-clear following rests for radioactivity by the Fukushima prefectural government last week.
Gov Yuhei Sato said that every bag of rice harvested in Fukushima will be tested for radiation, TBS reported. So far, all the bags have registered below the government-set limit of 100 becquerels per kilogram.
Sato said the prefecture expects this year's harvest to be about 360,000 tons.
Some supermarkets in Tokyo set up special corners for the Fukushima rice and reported good sales, TBS said.© Japan Today
