I visited Tokyo Sea Life Park "Kasai Rinkai Suizokuen" to see biological impacts of Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident. Though I have visited various places in Japan to see the health consequence of the accident, I have never found any effect against creatures in Japan.
Tokyo Sea Life Park shows us realistic and dramatic displays of freshwater and marine life not only from Tokyo, but also from around the world, even from the Antarctic. In the huge 2,200-ton tank, you can enjoy watching bluefin tuna darting swiftly around. The aquarium also exhibits sea birds including penguins, and giant kelp from California, US. The facility sits on the beach of Tokyo Bay and could be reached in half an hour by train from Tokyo station.
Generally speaking sea creature's growth is faster than human beings, so they are more sensitive to radioactive materials of the environment than us. Fortunately, they seemed healthy and I couldn't find any impact of the accident. Japanese stricter food safety law saves our lives successfully so people in Tokyo have no worry about food.
