If it is radiation he is worried about, maybe he could read this:

Fukushima Radiation Proves Less Deadly Than Feared

www.bloomberg.com...


You posted a 5 month old report from back when they were lying their A$$ off. I would stay state side for at least a year or 2 before, I would even think of venturing that way. And only for a very short limited time.

The father south you are, the safer you are from the radiation.
I have friends in Tokyo, and they are fine.try not to worry.
There are daily Geiger reports.look for them on line

They I assume are measuring radiation in the air... That's a good start, but that's not all there is to worry about.

Are there sites that regularly monitor radiation in the municipal water in various cities?, in the oceanic water?, in the sea-food? If so, I would be surprised and relieved. Somehow though, something tells me not to hold my breath.

Well the air readings are done mostly by expats.They record and post them daily.

When something is too high in Tokyo, things get closed down.
Schools, train stations.Things like that.
They don't announce levels to the public.

People are functioning ok in Tokyo.Many businesses have closed.
Unless you lived there, it won't even register , so to a tourist,
business as usual

I noticed that the new.atmc.jp... is working pretty well and in real-time.

The facebook one(s)- FB Link1 and FB Link2 sorry to say look kind of dated, like the author booked it out of Tokyo last yr.
Well, maybe it's not because of the rad. levels, but personal reasons only...

I don't know if your son has any visible Tattoo's, but if he does, make sure he covers them. Tattoo's are considered taboo there.

Not so much anymore.
Some bath houses will refuse you,and some jobs they are a no no ,but more and more people get them for aesthetic reasons now,and no one cares .

Yakuza tattoos are a whole other story .

the japanese govt and tepco are known hoaxers and liars so i wouldn't base any thing on what they say, with that being said i would ask my son to never go to japan again.

funny you should mention them, i heard unsubstantiated claims that the yakuza were bringing in people that owed them money to work on fukushima, telling them if they make this sacrifice they would be generous on their families when they're gone. makes sense since the japanese govt. is hiding the real death toll from everyone, including workers.

Like the Chinese with the triads ,the Japanese have yakuza ties to the government .
People who owe the yakuza money are usually used in a money making capacity ....
I have not heard this before ,but given the circumstance ,it can be possible ,but if they die ,they can no longer make money for them ....that being said ,if you die ,your family still owes .
Men's wives end up in yakuza brothels indefinitely in some cases
Its pretty harsh .

Hm, thanks for the info. If my memory is correct, isn't the Yakuza legal there? I am concerned... I once read that the true minds behind North American economy was in Japan. I think it was Michael Crichton in one of his semi-fictions novels.

I've never heard of schools being closed down due to 'high radiation'. Do you have some further info on that?

I've done my best to advise him of the dangers and convince him not to go. He is stubborn like I am and is set to go. He loves Japan, speaks the language fluently. He is 22. This is his 2nd trip. He first went as an exchange student when he was in High School 6 years ago.
What can I advise him to do, be aware of, take with him etc to protect himself as best he can against what is going on over there. He is planning to go second week of October.

Thanks in advance

Essentially, you are asking a group of highly-strung individuals on a conspiracy site, that bar a couple here and there haven't been to Japan. And you're hoping for sound advice and reassurance?
