    [Danger of 2020 Tokyo Olympic]

    Japan government has been concentrating all the effort into the successful 2020 Tokyo Olympic.
    The one of important intentions of opening 2020 Tokyo Olympic is the restoration of Fukushima prefecture and other prefectures near Fukushima where are contaminated by radioactivity.
    To restore the prefectures including Fukushima prefecture, Japan government has been promoting the agricultural, the farm and the aquatic products produced in Fukushima and its surrounding prefectures to entire region of Japan.
    And also, Japan government has already planned the foods produced in Fukushima and its surrounding prefectures to be provided to every national Olympic team during 2020 Tokyo Olympic.
    Although Mr. Shinzo Abe who is a Japanese prime minister announced publicly that the foods produced in Fukushima and its surrounding prefectures are safe from radioactivity, but he is making a lie like the truth. In general, the labeling of the place of origin in Japan is severely distorted.
    The labeling of the prefecture of origin of agricultural, farm and aquatic products in Japan is printed in accordance with the prefecture where the food products is disembarked, not with prefecture where the food products collected.
    For example, a scomber is collected at water area near Ibaraki prefecture, and the scomber is disembarked to Hakata port where is located in Fukuoka prefecture, Kyushu Island of Japan.
    And then, the scomber will have a labeling of the Fukuoka prefecture of origin, not Ibaraki prefecture. As you can see, Fukushima prefecture and its surrounding prefectures such as Iwate, Miyagi, Akita, Yamagata, Niigata, Tochigi, Gunma, Ibaraki, Saitama, Chiba, etc. are severely contaminated by radioactivity.
    It is very important for you to get a grip on the severity of the contaminated situation by radioactivity.
    If you have children, you will not send your children to contaminated region, even will not want that your children intake the contaminated foods.
    It is too dangerous behavior for you to send your children to Tokyo, and you have not to send your dear children to 2020 Tokyo Olympic. 2020 Tokyo Olympic is an expedient way for Japan government to hide the severity of danger of radioactivity which is diffused to Japan. # Affected regions by radioactivity: Aomori, Iwate, Miyagi, Akita, Yamagata, Niigata, Tochigi, Gunma, Ibaraki, Nagano, Toyama, Saitama, Chiba, Tokyo, Kanagawa, Yamanashi, Shizuoka.

     [ 2020東京オリンピックの危険性 ]

    安倍晋三首相は福島県とその周辺の多くの県からの食べ物は放射能から安全だと公表していますが、もっともらしく嘘をついているのであります。 日本では原産地のラベル表記は深刻に歪曲されています。
    そうしますと、そのさばの原産地は茨城県でなく福岡県になります。 皆様がご存知の通り、福島県とその周辺の岩手県、宮城県、秋田県、山形県、新潟県、栃木県、群馬県、茨城県、埼玉県、千葉県等は放射能によって深刻に汚染されています。
    皆様の子供たちを東京に行かせることはとても危険な行為で、2020東京オリンピックに皆様の子供たちが行かないよう安全に気を傾けるべきで。2020東京オリンピックは日本政府が日本の放射能の深刻さを隠す為のオリンピックなのです。# 放射能に汚染された地域: 青森県、岩手県、宮城県、秋田県、山形県、新潟県、栃木県、群馬県、茨城県、長野県、富山県、埼玉県、千葉県、東京都、神奈川県、山梨県、静岡県。
