Are you worried about radiation from Fukushima here in Fukuoka?

Not at all. It's far away, so it's not so dangerous. 

After the atomic bomb fell on Nagasaki, people in Fukuoka had no health problems.  But from Fukushima a great deal of radiation went into the ocean, so that's scary for other countries and for our food from the sea.  I'm worried about food from that area.  I'm old so it's not a problem, but I'm worried about children. 

I also believe TEPCO hides a lot of information from the public.
