A Handy Map that Calculates Distance from Nuke Plants for Any Given Location In Japan

My find of the evening.

This is from a Japanese site that compares "juku" (private tutoring schools to supplement the regular school work and/or to prepare students for entrance examinations to prestigious schools) in locations throughout Japan), but it has this interesting page that shows the distance of any given location in Japan from all the nuclear power plants in Japan.

This "Let's Find the Distance from Nuke Plants" page is available in English and Japanese. You can drag and drop the green arrow to anywhere in Japan, and the table above will calculate the distance in kilometers from Japan's 18 nuclear power plants. Click on the screen shot to go to the site and try!

Robbie001 sez:

And now for something completely different:

"Leaks of radioactive substances from fuel rods are suspected to have occurred at a nuclear power plant in Tsuruga, the Fukui prefectural government said Monday, citing a rise in the level of radioactive substances in coolant water."

Easy to see why the govt resists any widening of the evacuation zone - Koriyama Station, on the Tohoku Main Line (, the major north-south rail link, is 60km from Fukushima #1 as the crow flies.

There's also the small matter of the Tohoku Expressway, which pretty much tracks the rail line through Fukushima Province.
