Published: April 9th, 2012 at 9:33 pm ET


UPDATE: The fax document appears to have been available on the NISA website since last summer –Source

Via Fukushima Diary: Japanese journalist Kinoshitakota leaked the FAX correspondence between JP gov and Tepco just after 311. […] Fukushima chief Yoshida was aware that Fukushima plants were damaged by earthquake instead of Tsunami. […] We need to dig into the heaps of information.

Immediately after the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident, is seen as a FAX document exchange, such as site and the government side. Actually, to me, but it was from before about a month, a large amount is too data, Japan Dr. Banda Jeff skiing [Dr. Yury Bandazhevsky?] yet, because there was no room for anything, I leave it as it is anyway. If you’re considering just aim scoop, but story jump, as many a, for me you want to move from the Northeast and South Tokyo, pregnant women and children, women of childbearing age, the priority sensuous is not high. However, the place yesterday, so as to spill some of this data, place to expose the full scope of information to everyone that I know, everyone read the data, the situation at the time of the accident , I thought could be confirmed in real better. FAX so at the time, I think that atmosphere is well understood. The file itself is large, too large,I think because it is not well and check for viruses, but not only to download, and effects of the virus because it does not appear after the download, the point is all right. I think that I do not think from the very beginning, only that the government is aware of the danger, and often seen in this exchange. Talk and common sense in me, but not well Onnaji contents.

    I hope Kinoshitakota is beyond the reach of Tepco and the Yakuza.

    "The much mythologized "nuclear renaissance" will be officially buried, and the U.S. can take a definitive leap toward a green-powered future that will actually work and that won't threaten the continent with radioactive contamination."

    Great news!

    My quick translation of the Kinoshita blog, dated April 9, 2012

    "Titled: Entire document (large quantity) that looks like fax communication between the (Fukushima Daiichi) onsite and the government immediately after the Fukushima Daiichi accident

    "This document looks like fax communication between the onsite (staff) and the (JP) government immediately following the Fukushima Daiichi accident. Actually I had this from about a month ago but left it alone until now due to the sheer volume and my lack of time from taking care of Dr. Bandazhevsky’s visit to Japan. People who seek out news scoops might jump on something like this, but for me it was not high priority because I’d rather help evacuate as many children, pregnant women, and those in child bearing ages as possible from Tokyo and the sout-east-north surrounding areas. But a part of the data seemed to have leaked out around a day before, so I decided to make all of what I know public, so that everyone can sees the data and have realistic view of the situation at the time of the accident. The document itself constitutes faxed pages, so you get the atmosphere. The file itself is too large for virus check to work properly. Downloading it was the only way, but I have not noticed virus effect afterwards, so I think it is ok. You can see from this communication that the government was aware of the danger from the onset, there is no other interpretation. That much concurs with the common sense understanding I’ve had had…

    Fax 1-8 looks like a form reporting, filled out by Yoshida, dated March 11, 2011 @ 16:24. He marked the item #8 “Total current power loss”, the estimated cause “Earthquake”, the status of the reactor “During the operation”

  • These are very fascinating!

    Unfortunately with many things going on in my life right now I can't even remotely begin to sit down and translate them, but glossing over them I see Yoshida's name written towards the top right of many of the pages (at least in the 1-8 that is embedded in this post.)

    Page 14 of 68 in the first .pdf (the one embedded here) seems telling because it's March 11th 9:03pm and it is showing wind directions and speeds and the last one has a radiation reading (61mGy/h) written next to it. I don't recall the timelines exactly, but I wonder if this isn't indicating radiation leaks early on …

    Page 34 has a box circled indicating that there are people who were exposed to radiation. Earlier on page 8 this section of the form had "unknown" written in the section that says "exposed people".

    These documents seem very telling of the chaos and will certainly reveal a lot about the what really happened!

      wow dynamite! cant wait for a full analysis!

        @arclight..Good morning ..arclight..I wrote to friends in the UK last night..sent them a link to your work…
        LOL..that will sort them…
        They don't know what the hell I'm talking about anyway.
        I doubt that they will get it.
        Oh…but that's political…nice cause…etc.
        Long strained personal letters…it was rough.

          thanks heart! it should proove interesting viewing for them at least! 🙂

          but here the video showing proof of the turkey reactor spewing the same time as the earthquake.. the data has been covered up! earthquakes and medical/scientific reactors anyone? and they didnt say on hazmat that there was a reactor nearby?? and they had switched off on the 2 april to cover up the hungarian release!! oh what a web we weave! 😉


          • arclight arclight

            on the political side turkey looks set for a war with syria, or at least the border guards! 🙁

            the above reactor is in Van province just north of syria..

            wonder if war is covered on the new IAEA`s stress tests?

            giegers on europeans!!

            🙁 🙁 🙁

  • Page 38 seems to be March 12, 3:35am (assuming they were using 24 hr time as is common in Japan and as is printed on the other faxes), is showing wind direction north-north-east, the speed is given and the radiation doses look to be written as msv (Milli-Sieverts.)

    It would be great to go back and match this up with timelines of evacuations and official releases of information to show what WAS known and what WAS withheld from the poor people living north-north-east of this nightmare in progress.

    Eff yeah. Good stuff here!

    busby !!

    we need an analysis of the technical data please or maybe arnie!!????

    PLEASE! 🙂 ?????
