New Japan Fukushima Mascot Egg Fukuppy
to bolster the spirits of Japan’s disaster-hit Fukushima Prefecture – a mascot
stop the world and let me off.
Robert Jacobs, a professor at Hiroshima Peace University:
Why does the problem persist at Fukushima? Because they can’t decide whether they want to close it or to keep it going.
- Tokyo Electric Power Company in fact seems reluctant to shut down Fukushima for good. Tepco is in fact pushing to reopen its Kashiwazaki Kariwa facility – the world's largest nuclear power station – which itself was shut down in 2007 following reports of radioactive leaks in the wake of an earthquake.
More than 80 centimeters of rain fell in less than 24 hours, forcing TEPCO to pump out massive quantities of rainwater collected in the protective containers where more than 1,000 temporary tanks with contaminated water are being stored.
The rainwater was checked for radioactivity and released into the sea, a company spokesman told Reuters.
Russia Today, Oct. 17
I see. Could explain the relation to boiling eggs, mascots and industrial refrigerator manafacturers? I'm stumped.
Osaka-based Fukushima Industries issued a public apology after its mascot “Fukuppy” sparked ridicule on social networks.
The company’s name is made up of the first part of the firm’s name “fuku” and the end of the English word “happy.” In Japanese the name is pronounced “foo-koo-pee.”
The small, egg-shaped mascot greets visitors to the company website with the cheery message: “"I'm Fukuppy. I think I'm kind, with a strong sense of justice, but people say I'm a little bit scatterbrained."
In response to the scandal, Fukushima Industries have said they are now looking into renaming their mascot.
This time, the name of our corporate character, because of the way it’s written, has been regarded as inappropriate, or has been misunderstood among English-speaking people,”

The invisible dragon of Daiichi is loose, and will be for centuries. It's time to start talking about what this means for the world.
