Obara had a friend who worked in the plant, who accompanied him and provided a cover story.
He used both SLRs and a small, silent camera, but even when people saw him taking photographs, no questions were asked. Obara points to the fact that very little information was given to the workers — they had no idea how their work was going, what other workers were doing, and they weren't being warned about areas of dangerously high radiation.

Finally someone making a proper post on this nuclear disaster.
I live in Romania and after Chernobyl the cancer rate in my country grew 900 % yes you hear it right. Over the years it increased and at one point we were told that the effects would be for 25 years ...
There is no way people are so blind with the daily lives not to believe that what happened at Fukushima just ended because you do not see it in the media anymore ..It did not end is just the begging.
China has discovered 100,000 square miles of Pacific Ocean waters, at distances up to 800 kilometers from Fukushima, with Cesium radiation levels up to 300 times normal and Strontium radiation levels up to 100 times normal. China says a study conducted by its State Oceanic Administration has found widespread levels of highly radioactive contamination throughout Pacific Ocean.

If it weren't for the contamination of the water table, the meltdown going into the ground would probably be a much better situation than Chernobyl. The ground would contain the radiation much better than a fragile sarcophagus. This water table contamination is serious for Japan, but how much, I don't know.
During the first days of the accident, they had dug a gigantic tunnel into which they injected liquid nitrogen--whose temperature was hundreds of degrees below zero-in order to cool the core of the burning reactor, which was on the point of exploding. And in this vast cell dug by miners clad in white, thousands of cubic meters of concrete were poured to form a slab that would prevent the nuclear fallout from reaching the ground water
