Catholic Central Council and Public Relations Recommendation


It has been a year and a half since the radiation accident at the Fukushima Dai-ichi NPS caused by the Great East Japan Earthquake.
Serious health damage, environmental pollution, and untold discrimination against the residents of the affected areas have yet to come to an end.
They are plunging the victims into invisible suffering. This massive radioactive contamination dates back 57 years to 1954.
Five hydrogen bomb tests were carried out by the United States at Bikini Atoll in the South Sea.


The exposure to the fifth Fukuryu Maru is famous, but there was another exposure that is little known.
The crews of tuna fishing boats and cargo ships that were unsuspecting in the area were exposed to a large amount of “dead ash.”
This film is based in Kochi Prefecture and has been investigating the exposure of tuna fishing boats that were buried in the darkness of history.
After learning about the activities of high school teachers and students, a TV man from Nankai Broadcasting Corporation spent eight years investigating the radiation damage and
This is the truth of a remarkable history of digging up and examining “classified documents” exchanged between the Japanese and U.S. governments.
Seamen in their prime, bathed in the ashes of death, die one after another from cancer and heart disease in their 40s and 50s.
A wife who picked up her husband’s remains at a fire place testified, “Other people’s bones are left clean, and my father’s remains are

And the astonishing fact that contaminated tuna continued to unashamedly appear on the tables of Japanese households. Why didn’t he raise his voice?
“You can say things in these times, but if you said a word (back then), you would have lived here.
In the An-era, Japan had no choice but to rebuild itself with coal and fish, “he said, nine years after Japan’s defeat in World War II.
When Japan finally stood up (like a baby), he said, “In every era, only the weak lose money.”
These words of widowed wives hit the nail on the head far more than the modern critic’s “high opinion.”


The concept of prioritizing economy, efficiency, and speed over modest happiness and a safe natural environment has led to radioactive contamination at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant.
It overlaps with the suffering of the groaning people of Fukushima. Now that we have to sit down and build a Japanese coordinate system,
this is a must-see movie that serves as the foundation material for this.


For these reasons, I recommend the documentary film “X Years After Radiation” as a public relations project of the Catholic Central Council.
