Nico Nico Live Video from Hirono-machi, Fukushima

Journalists getting ready to go to Fukushima I Nuke Plant. It looks cold just outside the JR train station of Hirono-machi.

Nico Nico Live requires registration (free for regular members).

Nico Nico's cameraman is saying he will act as "your eyes" going into the 20 kilometer zone.

Nico Nico's reporter says "I'll do my best to report the truth from Fukushima I Nuke Plant".

Hirono-machi JR station is 3-kilometer south of J-Village (20 kilometers from the plant), and from there they will go to Fuku I by bus. Most of the tour at the plant will be from inside the bus, but they will get to go outside at a location south of Reactor 4.

They are fitted with:

  • Geiger counter made by France's Million, showing 0.43 microsievert/hour at Hirono-machi train station

  • Personal survey meter that can record cumulative radiation exposure

  • Video camera

Yasumi Iwakami appeared briefly on his way:
