Reaching out to others in need helps couple in limbo cope with own fears

The pair, who met in the isles, wants to leave Fukushima and flee the health hazards from the 2011 nuclear disaster

FUKUSHIMA, Japan » Marian Moriguchi grew up in Alewa Heights, but she has spent 26 years making a home in Fukushima, her husband Kenji’s birthplace.

The couple, who met in Hawaii, have established businesses in Japan and paid off a mortgage. They’ve reached a point in life where they ought to feel secure; however, in the aftermath of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster — the largest nuclear accident since Chernobyl — they are plagued by uncertainty.

      A very often in mass media repeated phrase! Technically, it's not a lie, but (intentionally?) grossly misleading. I call it "The worst nuclear catastrophe since my neighbour's cat ran away". When you look at it now, does it look like saying the cat running away was the bigger catastrophe?

TOO contaminated 480KM on land 2500km in the sea..And i love how the Surfrider foundation does NOTHING ,and doen't believe in "bioaccumulation" of radionuclides of Cs-137. They are the "hush it over" guys.Where's the "COVE" guys,whale lover and dolphins, how come these guys are not leading this charge?????? if the collaborators are weakened ,maybe ,we can get some real help to the CHILDREN, PREGNANT MONTHER'S ,AND BABAIES……….!!

    This shows the attachment to money. Yes sell it all get out. But no, we want someone to pay our way while we keep our $$$$. I have great compassion for all, but if you have the means to leave, give it away, sell it and leave and take as many people with you as you can, if they want to leave that is.

    Health hazards extend far beyond that region. Very far.

    No disrespect, but this is so stupid.
    Waiting a year and half in an radioactive area? By now they might as well just stay there. And besides that go where? Even Europe is heavily contaminated from Fukushima fall out. Maybe not as much as Hawaii and the american westcoast, but trust me, heads are gonna roll here as well. If not from our own contaminated food, then from the imported contaminated food that EU allows without proper testing.
    Food from the american westcoast is more radioactive than food from the Fukushima area. And stores all over the world is packed with California raisins.
    "PARENTS LET YOUR KIDS HAVE THE RAISINS. THEY CAN TAKE IT"!!!!!
