Katsunobu Onda, Journalist: As was explained earlier, I have a 35 year relationship with nuclear power plants.
My first opportunity I had to study nuclear power plants was 35 years ago when I visited the Daiichi Fukushima nuclear power plant that was run by Tepco.
And the reason that I went was that, as you may know inside the power plants facilities themselves there are many, many, many people that work at a the plant…
And I had heard stories that several people, or maybe several tens of people, had died from their exposure to radiation.
