So I'm off to Japan (suggest sight seeing)

Pretty much as the title says,

Flying into Fukuoka, and travelling Kudamatsu for 10 days starting from tomorrow morning. (Go for work, some installations and repairs to perform.)

So anywhere worth heading to? I know the GP is next weekend, but fat chance of affording a ticket!

Closest big spots at the south end are Nagasaki and Hiroshima... little further north are Osaka, and the historical capital, Kyoto. Other than that, I don't know the area at all...

Well the shinkansen can take you anywhere almost, so when time permits I want to try and make the most of it.

don't eat any fish from the pacific, fukushima has been pouring in radiation into the sea for the last 1000 days, there is a media blackout there under-pain of extreme punishment for talking about it.

I can't tell if you are serious or not.
As a pacific fisherman, and a science nerd who just happened to have purchased a gieger counter somewhat recently, I can promise you that the fish have no more radiation emissions than pretty much anything else in your home.

Saying that fukushima is polluting the pacific is really stupid. The pacific ocean has more square area than all of the land mass on the earth combined. I might not choose to eat a fish that I caught off the beach at the power plant, but anything else you are fine.

Oh Dude, don't go there! I made a silly throwaway joke last time rainbowbridge posted about fallout from Fukushima and received a couple of abusive PMs for my trouble. Was just a silly comment but he took it pretty seriously. You could say he "went nuclear" but that would be in bad taste.

Crap, just realised this was posted on the 27th. Hope he's avoided the volcano, earthquakes and typhoon.

Uhhg, I've been dealing with people in my hometown who are greatly concerned with the potential contamination in the bay surrounding my town. Enough that they are trying to fund water quality studies. Just been driving me a bit crazy.

Perhaps I am looking at this the wrong way, I should just put in a bid to perform the water quality analysis. Get a few test tubes of water on a fishing trip. Set it next to a geiger counter on a data logger for a few hours. Compare to some tap water. Walk away with the $1.5k ($500 less then what they were offered).

Really? They do realise there's a hell of a lot of water mass between you and Japan don't they?

I spent two weeks at Hitachi's Kasado works, in Kudamatsu City. I guess a little interweb searching can find the link as to why an English man may be there.

On a side note, I'm back!

I missed typhoon 19 "Vongfong", and 18 just bought a little rain and wind to my location whilst I was there.

I'll have a dig into the photo's and report back later.

Hum, An quick Google brought up a picture of a Class 395, Given that Hitachi have contracts to build some Cross Rail and the new Great Western Mainline stock, my guess is, your checking them out???
