Many countries people think Japan is still dangerous though more than one year has passed.
Actually, roped-off area is within a 20km radius at Fukushima atomic power plant. On the other hand, It’s 220km between the plant and Tokyo.

Especially, Canadian and American think Japan is small country, and you might think all area is polluted in Japan. But Japan is very long country with a length of 3,300km.
Dangerous area is really limited. Almost all area in Japan is safe.
Don’t tease Japanese tourist business!
