Environmental Hazards in Japan

Environmental hazards in Japan?

 

The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster was an energy accident at the Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant in Fukushima, Japan, following the Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami on 11 March 2011. It was the largest nuclear disaster since the 1986 Chernobyl disaster and the second nuclear disaster in Japan after the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami.

 

The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster resulted in release of radioactive materials from the Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant into the environment. This caused radioactive contamination of air, water and soil in the vicinity of the plant, and resulted in the evacuation of residents from a large area around the plant. The radioactive contamination also spread to other prefectures of Japan, and was detected in food products shipped from Fukushima.

 

The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster had a significant impact on the fishing and agriculture industries in Fukushima, and the Japanese government imposed restrictions on the shipment of food products from Fukushima. The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster also resulted in the closure of the Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant, and the decommissioning of all the nuclear reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant.
