Dr. Shintaro Kikuchi, Pediatrician in Koriyama, Fukushima Prefecture

h/t Anonymous tip

At 2:35 in

Dr. Kikuchi: From this April, we work for children and their parents…

At first we worked for care of children’s minds.

We need help for all of children, for example physical body, care of body, care of mind or anything about children.

Children living in Fukushima, they couldn’t play outside, exposure of radiation.

They couldn’t run, they couldn’t jump… so I make a very wide indoor playground… about 100,000 people come in 3 months.

Naoko Endo: … All the people care about radiation all the time. They always worry about sand, especially outside. Because much radiation always leaking out.

Dr. Kikuchi: We need help from outside Japan because Japanese people don’t think the situation for children is getting worse and worse.

We are now in very bad condition. Especially for children.

So please give us help.

    Excerpt transcribed from the video:

    Naoko Endo is a volunteer child care worker in Fukushima children:

    Speaking about the Fukushima adults:

    All the people care [worry] about the radiation, all the time”

    “They always worry about sand, especially outside."

    “Much radiation always leaking out”

    SP: I think young doctor Shintaro Kikuchi is not going to get any promotions in the government medical system for speaking out so the situation must be very dire.

    Today having my car repaired in a Texas tire store I spoke with a Japanese-American lady (a friend of my wife). She said she had been in Tokyo recently to visit relatives. I asked her if they were worried about food and water being dangerous.

    Without hesitation she said they were very worried. She also said the Japanese people will never emigrate to China because there is so much ancient animosity.

    Help me here. I sent a email to the address here that was posted on the other story from the Doctor.


    WHAT HELP DOES HE NEED, the video did not say much and was deleted and now people reading enenews, do not know what to do to help.So does anyone know what HELP THEY NEED EXACTLY?

    I sent a email to the doctor and so far no reply as to their needs, so asking on here

    Thanks Mark

      markww, i think that since the ministry of health official line in Japan is that everything is fine, the children are only ill from stress and not radiation, and the government officially refuses any outside help from other countries so far, that he is asking for outsiders like us to contact our leadership, our doctors, our whomever, like the petition at Beyond Nuclear to pressure Japan into accepting help. Once that is done, we can send supplies, should any be needed. Of course, our own government says that everything is fine, that the kids are fine, that nuclear power is fine, so safe, in fact, that after Fukushima, the NRC relaxed safety standards here after a "thorough review". But, the UN is trying to to reason with Japan and has also convened a group of engineers, scientists, and perhaps doctors from all over the world to be ready to help as soon as Japan allows. Remember that the US refused all outside help with the Gulf oil spill. Perhaps Japan ad America are very similar in their governmental perceptions that it is better to let your people suffer than for the government to appear in need of help.

      Hi MarkWW, I just e-mailed to Dr. Kikuchi in Japanese. We'll see if he replys. I'll report back here when/if it happens (some time Sat. 5/19).

      Gotta go get my beauty sleep now.

        thank you sleep nice let me know what you find out you can email me at

          Hi Mark WW,

          No reply from the doctor. Perhaps he understands the dire sitaution for Fukushima children and the need to express a general SOS but not sure about what kind of help to ask for from overseas observers. Perhaps he is not aware of what we've been doing in our small ways, such as raising the awareness through discussions at EN ENEWS and other nuclear watchdog sites, publicly pointing out the facts and wrong doing of the Japanese decision makers for the world to see, sometimes mobilizing for petitions and donations, contacting the US politicians… I'll write him again today and see what happens.

  • Possible alert…
    Spontaneous exploding rocks: A 43-year-old woman in California suffered third-degree burns last Saturday after two rocks she’d collected at the beach spontaneous exploded while she was standing in her kitchen, causing her shorts to catch fire. The rocks were in her pocket. The Orange County Register reports that the woman tried to stop, drop, and roll to put out the flames. It didn’t help. But listen to what happened next: The rocks, described as small, the size of a hamburger patty, smooth and orange and green in color, fell from the shorts onto the floor and continued to burn the wood floor and fill the house with smoke. According to Orange County Fire Authority Captain Marc Stone, “The rocks were still smoking when firefighters took them to the hospital.” Captain Stone thinks the culprit might be phosphorous. “There is phosphorous that naturally occurs on the sand at the beach, but no one has ever heard of pants


    Were these melted nuclear fuel pellets??????

    I've emailed back and forth with Dr. Kikuchi, he says he needs money, for the children's indoor space. I'm working on setting him up with an online donation site (they're all for-profit) or failing that, just a PayPal account. I'll keep you posted, email him anyway and send support and good wishes or any ideas you have.

    Interesting name…

    "Notes of Reminiscence portrays an idealized image of youth that was prevalent in the latter half of the Meiji Period. Shintaro Kikuchi, the hero of the novel…."

    For whatever reason, I can't find the name in any academic or medical sources. I'm still looking though. Has anyone found Dr. Kikuchi's vitae online or any biographical information?

    Adding to the hardship of Fukushima residents is the discrimination they are facing in their own country: this year, students who have graduated from Fukushima high-schools are finding it extremely difficult to be hired for jobs in Tokyo and other big cities. The word is being spread that they "create trouble by reminding their bosses that they deserve preferential treatment on the job in consideration of the hardship they've been through …"; refugees are said to have "become lazy living on gov't handouts and spending the money in game parlours …"

    Everyone please take the time to read the original thread on this…lotsa info.

    I have also been in contact with DR. Kikuchi via E-Mail and now he seems to have vanished. I grow worried.

    a used reactor tent could make a indoor play area and perhaps even lower their exposure rate. everyone knows the only thing that can be done is to send every available cruise ship to fuku and get those people out of there right now.

    I remember back in mid 2011 suggesting on another site that people in Japan needed to evacuate and that people in other countries could help by offering to take in Japanese families. The Japanese are by nature very studious and likely would try to get on their feet asap.

    The first reply was from someone who wondered what I'd been smoking 'cause he wanted some.

    The next was from some turd who said something like "YEAH, send 'em my way, especially the girls!"

    Scary sometimes to think how close to neanderthals some of us are.

    Anyway, I believe that if GOOD people, without some private agenda (yeah, it's hard to find people like that these days) with SEPARATE living quarters, could open their property to them that would be a big help. Preferably if they had unused homes at the moment. Sounds silly but think of all the abandoned houses due to the economic collapse. Banks are holding onto a lot of them.
