Radiation Levels in Tokyo, Japan, Thursday July 28, 2011 at 8:38 am
It's Thursday July 28, 2011 at 8:37 in the morning. A slight rain has hit the Kanto area. Here is a map from Yahoo Japan:
I wanted to use this rainy day chance to measure the background radiation levels here in Tokyo. As you can see from the video, I measured the air and near a drainage spot in the road.
The levels were well within safe ranges between 0.11 ~ 0.12 microsiverts per hour. The levels are usually between 0.09 ~ 0.12.
