this article seems to be talking about security issues, not glowing sushi. What's the connection, other than the plant pumping radiated cooling water into the ocean for years?
TEPCO's Kashiwazaki-Kariwa Nuclear Power Plant and Fukushima Daini Nuclear Power Plant have discovered a series of security problems.
According to TEPCO, in January at the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa nuclear power plant, a case occurred in which the protective equipment for detecting intruders was broken, and additional investigation revealed multiple similar equipment failures.
Details have not been disclosed, but it is believed that the damaged camera or sensor was damaged.
It was also found that the employee had lost the ID of the Fukushima Daini Nuclear Power Plant.
This employee came to support from the 1st nuclear power plant to the 2nd nuclear power plant, created an ID, and then returned to the 1st nuclear power plant.
The ID of the second nuclear power plant was invalidated in 2016, but until recently I did not notice the loss.
These cases were reported to Chairman Fuketa and others at the extraordinary Nuclear Regulatory Commission held on the night of the 18th.
Regarding TEPCO, in September last year, an employee of the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa nuclear power plant just used an ID to enter the central control room, and criticism from local governments such as Niigata prefecture is likely to increase.

You are saying that the radiation blast from a nuclear bomb will not make nearby nuclear fuel react down into less harmful or harmless atoms?

Its been 10 years now and even radiation levels are returning to normal around the plant. They are about half way through the removal of the reactors. Once they are gone the area in the plant will return to normal as well . This was no where near the damage of Chernobyl and the Russians did not attempt a clean up either. Their approach was to pour concrete over it and hope for the best. Even now the concrete is deteriorating so the problem continues.
