Towns hosting nuclear plants in Fukushima have lodged a protest with the operator of the plants over failing to disclose some radioactive water leaks from Fukushima Daiichi into the sea.
Tokyo Electric Power Company is facing heavy criticism over its handling of tainted water that collected on the rooftop of the No.2 reactor building at the Daiichi plant. The water is believed to have been spilling into the sea through a drainage channel.
Tokyo Electric was aware that the levels of radioactive substances in the channel rise whenever it rains. But it didn't make the information public until last month.
Naraha Town Mayor Yukiei Matsumoto, who is also the representative of the 4 towns hosting the Fukushima Daiichi and Daini plants, visited Tokyo Electric's head office on Thursday.
Matsumoto told the utility's president Naomi Hirose it's extremely regrettable that the latest development has profoundly undermined trust in the company among locals.
Matsumoto said securing the overall safety of the nuclear plants, including the issue of contaminated water, is the first step in efforts to rebuild from the 2011 nuclear accident.
He handed Hirose a letter of protest, in which the municipalities demand the company swiftly disclose information and enhance the awareness of its employees.
Hirose offered his apologies for repeatedly causing concerns among local people. He vowed the company will take thorough measures to prevent a recurrence.
The buildings are really in a state of disrepair at Fukushima. There’s been some new video released of what could be the molten – some of the corium – that has leeched out.
We talked a long time ago that some of it is not solid and still oozing in that respect.
And this video showed something, that if it weren’t just metal melted, but it sure looked like if it was corium, then it would be oozing. Which would lend credibility to our lava lamp effect that we’ve been talking about for a long time now, thus little criticalities going on and causing continued heat…
Certainly there were some pretty interesting images of it. You can see how frustrating the attempts are to contain the mess into some area, let alone treat it. The fuel was never designed to leave the cladding, that was the first line of defense.
The above words represent a mere sample of the doomsday and supremacy ideology to be found within the pages of their holy book of “divine revelations’ the Goseigen, from which members of this cult obtain their succour, justification, future directions and arrogance meanwhile setting the future course for humankind. These revelations come from the highest most powerful god this nation could conjure up. Don’t mess with him.
I am presenting the samples set out above since I have a copy of Goseigen and I have read it many times over. I was a high-ranking member of this cult for around ten years. All cult members have a copy and know it thoroughly. It’s their duty to. It’s their bible – their script which they must faithfully follow…
Glancing through the Shrine’s visitor book he smiles when he sees that several ruling Liberal Democratic Party members (LDP) have also signed it. His smile broadens even further when he is greeted by one of the Shrine’s priests – a close friend of the leader of the nation’s fastest growing doomsday cult, Sukyo Mahikari.
Abe has a deep admiration for this occult cult and regularly sends his congratulations or a representative on their special occasions.
Its founder, Yoshikazu Okada, was a great and powerful militarist who owned a huge munitions factory during the war. He was also a friend of the Imperial family, something that Abe hopes to achieve someday.
In the meantime he can only fantasize about his divine supremacy calling by being photographed in his jet fighter plane. He knows that his days of glory will surely come just as, Yoshikazu Okada, the cult’s leader had his day in the sun as a military strategist during the glorious Nanjing incident (Rape of Nanjing).
Abe also reflects upon those happy days when he would sit on his grandfather’s knee listening as his grandfather, Nobusuke Kishi, recounting his glory days in Manchuria as its main administrator and as a high ranking militarist wherein he helped establish the secret military unit #731- a unit dedicated to creating the most advanced methods of mass destruction imaginable.
He was also the wartime Minister of Munitions and established Japan’s clandestine nuclear weapons program. “It’s just not right that grandfather Kishi was arrested as a war criminal. People simply don’t understand.”
Nobusuke Kishi obviously had a great influence upon the young Abe.
Meanwhile, far out in the South China Sea on the tiny and disputed Senkaku/Diaoyu Islets, Abe’s long-serving colleague, Shintaro Ishihara, leader of the New Restoration Party (nuclear re-armament party) and ex-mayor of Tokyo is challenging the might of the Chinese navy hoping for some form of military retaliation in order to justify the nuclear re-arming of Japan.
His last major challenge whilst still mayor of Tokyo was the incineration of thousands of tons of highly radioactive rubble from the areas close to Fukushima which were devastated in the recent tsunami.
Shintaro Ishihara is used to conflicts. He was once on a sure path to becoming a Japanese Prime Minister himself, that is, until his deep involvement with the murderous Aum Shinri Kyo cult was uncovered forcing him to abandon his parliamentary aspirations and lie low for some years.
But nowadays a good PR makeover can undo almost anything. He feels contentment towards his Aum days as they did smuggle great quantities of nuclear weaponry out of the crumbling Soviet Union after all.
PM Abe notices Shintaro Ishihara’s name in the Yasukuni Shrine’s visitor book too and briefly wonders how his divine campaign in the South China Sea is progressing.
It can be a small world for those at the top – the ruling elite, as Shintaro Ishihara is a longstanding member and personal friend of Yoshikazu Okada, the founder of the Sukyo Mahikari cult too.
Okada, too, was well connected to most Japanese Prime Ministers of that era whilst his personal confidante and second in command of the cult was a convicted war criminal.
PM Shinzo Abe looks kindly upon the Ishihara family because of their loyal and longstanding support, so in order to express this appreciation Shintaro Ishihara’s son, Nobuteru Ishihara, himself a high-ranking LDP politician is given the prized cabinet position as the new Minister for the Environment, Nuclear Reactors and Minister responsible for decommissioning the destroyed Fukushima nuclear power station.
The ruling elite is well pleased with this appointment since many believe this role was bestowed upon him directly by God himself since Nobuteru Ishihara is a senior member of the Sukyo Mahikari doomsday cult too.
Nobuteru Ishihara deeply ponders the holy words which now seem to be speaking to him personally as a chosen one and wonders how he might serve his God more directly in these troubled times of the Fukushima catastrophe.
When the tsunami struck on that God-ordained day it was initially considered to be a sign from God that he was unhappy with the people of Japan – a divine retribution.

I stopped reading when you said "Ningen" means sub-human.
Ningen simply means "Human Being" or "Man (Humanity)". Your agenda at Demonizing the Japanese people really irritates me.
“Although Ningen (sub humans – that’s you and me) eagerly seek peace and coexistence and dislike the atomic bomb, the production of fire balls in this world cannot be stopped.
God will make man produce the fireballs and bullets…they (that’s you and me again) are just like radish to be grated.” P. 188-190 revealed August 15, 1963.
This is a series of observations of Mahikari literature exploring the nature of a 'religion' that claims to exist for the good and welfare of mankind, yet has clear doomsday overtones. Because there is so much information this article has been compliled in mainly point form.
The English edition of Goseigen was copyrighted in 1982, to the Bishop of the North America Region of Sekai Mahikari Bunmei Kyodan (SMBK).
Goseigen, the Mahikari Bible firstly compiled by SMBK, and later printed in English, is also the same bible or book of holy revelations used by Sukyo Mahikari - the largest Mahikari faction. Goseigen (English version) is a book of 291 pages and contains 52 revelations.
All members are taught that the words contained therein are only some of the words the Creator God gave directly to former Lieutenant Colonel Yoshikazu Okada, Mahikari's founder and guru, starting around 1959, when he said he was instructed by God to use the name Kotama (Ball of Light).
Later Kotama was instructed to use another more holy name reflecting the progression of the divine plan - Seio - holy bird, or golden phoenix.
This is the same name found inside the pendant worn by all primary Mahikari members so they can 'radiate' light..
Perhaps at no time in human history has it been more crucial to get involved and battle corrupt corporate interests -- the catalysts of our own self-annihilation.
Contaminated soil, undrinkable water, birth defects in both animals and humans:
This is what the people of Japan can expect from their inexplicable use of nuclear power -- “inexplicable” in that Japan is the only country to have ever been subjected to uranium’s use as a weapon of mass destruction.
Despite changing claims by corporate scientists and governments, Japan is now experiencing uncontrolled radioactive discharges at the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant following the events of March 11, 2011. Chernobyl was a picnic compared to what’s happening there.
Chernobyl had one reactor, and it didn’t sit on a beach 2,500 feet from the largest body of water on earth. Fukushima involves four reactors, three of which have melted down into the bedrock.
Experts from two Japanese universities have tested the radiation levels and found that the plant, with its 4,400 tons of nuclear fuel rods, “greatly dwarfs the total size of radiation sources at Chernobyl.”
Obviously, the intentional and unintentional release of highly contaminated water from Fukushima’s core into the Pacific Ocean is a wide-open, man-made door to the “process of global radioactive contamination,” says Michel Chossudovsky, the founder of Canada’s Center for Research on Globalization.
As early as 2011, only weeks after the disaster, fish caught off the California coast contained elements of nasty radioactive materials -- and though the test sample wasn’t large, every one of the fish tested was dosed with contaminants.
Interestingly, the tested fish were all born before the disaster, meaning their exposure was limited. One of the study’s experts stated that fish swimming across the Pacific Ocean ever since will have “considerably more radioactivity” and could result in a serious “public health hazard.”
He’s only discussing the present. Imagine 10, 15 or 20 years from now: These doses of alpha-, beta- and gamma-radiation emitters easily set up shop in algae, fish, grass, cattle and -- oh, yeah -- human beings.
Then there’s contamination from the nuclear cloud.
For months now, “steam” has been observed erupting from the top of one of the reactors. Tepco, the corporation most directly responsible for this catastrophe, can’t explain this steam or what it contains.
(Why? Because the company’s crane is malfunctioning!) But recent reports indicate that a wealth of new radioactive materials has been spewed into the atmosphere from Fukushima, spreading globally.
Indigenous peoples around the world have always been on the front lines of environmental disasters.
Indigenous lands are the last ones containing significant untouched concentrations of the most prized resources on earth -- and corporations and governments will do anything to get at them.
"Repeatedly, indigenous leaders have warned that the planet is not a resource for exploitation. Arvol Looking Horse is the 19th-generation pipe carrier of all the bands of the Lakota, Nakota and Dakota nations in North America."

not to mention the plight of all sealife on the west coast.
the die offs are getting horrendous.
"The new study shows that radiation can damage larvae even at much lower concentrations. Otaki and colleagues collected leaves 16 to 20 months after the accident, after short-lived radioactive contamination had decayed, but this time from locations ranging from 59 to 1760 kilometers from the power plant; contamination levels ranged from 161 to 0.2 Bq/kg.
