Thanks everyone for your sympathetic almost 'unamimous' support (:

Maria, I couldn't agree with you more. That's what it is about ~ raising awareness of these still traumatic environments that so many thousands of children have to grow up in, with all the stress that entails post disasters. For more information please check out and support these sites:

Josh has been working out and training as well as completing the logistics involved in this challenge tour of Japan since March of 2018. He has almost completed his preparation for this challenge he has set himself. He and his support team will be arriving in Japan in early March this year in readiness for the start of his tour through Japan on the 11th, March, the 8 year anniversary of the 'Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami of 2011'

Thank you for writing such a thoughtful, caring and inspiring article. It is deeply impressive to hear someone focus on the positive and largely unsung work and commitment that you and people of your generation are doing in and for the beautiful prefecture of Fukushima. I add my applause and appreciation too. Thank you Chika san.

Gyouza and BaruminDes, with you and all the many thoughtful and concerned comments here on the seriousness of this topic of suicide prevention.

Also there are professional support services in Japan. For example (in Japanese): http://www.jsccp.jp/center/tel.php http://www.jsccp.jp/near/

There are mental health experts who the gov't could have consulted, not so far away from their offices either (English): http://www.ncnp.go.jp/nimh/english/j_yobou.html

The Associated Press has written some well researched articles on suicide prevention and support for people suffering from depression. For example: http://abcnews.go.com/International/wireStory?id=13808067#.TzEr60wjGqc

There are many uploadings of Dr Kodama's impassioned and expert speech in Japanese about the nuclear fallout from the Fukushima nuclear disaster. My guestimate is that collectively the number in Japanese is getting up to 1,000,000 views and still growing. The one with the largest number of views is at 549,659 and can be seen here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O9sTLQSZfwo&feature=related the one around 300,000 can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eubj2tmb86M

549,659 and just grew to that number by nearly 200 while I've been writing this comment. 

If all you good folk here in Tokyo, and Japan and around the world who are in support of the truth and concerned about the health of the good people of the Fukushima area and Touhoku disaster region can kindly share on to your social networks maybe we can get this English version to go over 1,000,000 and even more viral too. This will help put world pressure and support getting fast, effective healthy solutions to this ongoing disaster that threatens so many adults and children now and in the future. Dr Kodama is a medical doctor specialized in cancer treatment and a leading authority on the effects of radiation on people's health at the University of Tokyo. Spread his words please, for the sake of us all in Japan and our children's children too. Thank you
