Japan: Visa radioactive free.

"The Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs recently announced it would suspend visa fees for foreign tourists bound for Miyagi, Iwate and Fukushima, to mitigate the bad situation of the tourism industry in these three districts disaster, "wrote the People's Daily Online (China).
This measure came into effect from 15 November 2011, will last five years, for the period that the government calls "concentrated renaissance" that is to say the reconstruction and decontamination.
Tourists who make a long stay (that is to say who will be exposed to more radiation) benefit more from this new policy.
The visa for one entry in Japan costs about 28 Euros and a visa with multiple entry costs 56 euros for Chineses.

On March 11, 2011, Japan was hit by the largest earthquake since the Meiji era (1898-1912)

With a magnitude of 8.9 on the Richter scale, the earthquake occurred at 24.4 km depth and a hundred miles off the coast of Miyagi in northeastern Honshu, the main island of Japan.
         The earthquake was followed by numerous aftershocks of magnitude stronger (6.4). The earthquake triggered a tsunami an hour later with huge waves sometimes reaching 10 feet high burying bridges, freeway segments, boats, houses and vehicles, carried such straws.
The waves that swept across the Pacific have not done a priori other damage. A young man of 25, however, was carried away by a wave in Northern California.

Misfortunes never come alone, the earthquake causes the nuclear disaster!

While organized to help evacuate the victims of the earthquake and tsunami, the building housing the plant No.1 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex, located 250 km from Tokyo, collapses. The nuclear accident is assessed at Level 4 on the scale of Nuclear and Radiological Event Scale (INES) as indicated by the Japan Nuclear and Industrial Safety.
The inhabitants of the area received iodine tablets and evacuated within 20 km More than 50,000 people were forced to abandon their homes because of radioactivity.
While a reactor of the Central N°2 located a dozen miles of Fukushima N°1 was defective cooling.
At the agricultural pollution of biocides and other heavy metals (Pb, Hg, Cd, etc. ...), plus a long-term radioactive contamination and chronic.
The strong nuclear radiation were recorded over the city of Fukushima, which is more or less 70 km from the plant site.
The Fukushima nuclear disaster caused a very strong condemnation of radioactive marine environment. Releases of Cesium-137 is estimated at 27 million billion becquerels,
A strong radioactive contamination of the marine environment after the accident occurred in the central Japanese Fukushima.          Releases of Cesium-137 is estimated at 27 million billion becquerels, said in November 2011, the French Institute for Radiological Protection and Nuclear Safety (IRSN).
The radioactivity of cesium-137 is halved every 30 years.

Tourism all risks in the rubble of the devastated areas.

         Miyagi, Iwate and Fukushima, territories north of Japan have been seriously affected by the earthquake and tsunami.

With a population estimated at 2 million, the province of Miyagi, whose capital is Sendai, has lost more than 10,000 people during the tsunami, more than half the population of this city only in the port city of Minamisanriku.
It is in Iwate Prefecture in the north of Miyagi and has over 1, 3 million people located in 13 cities. This is where the first death of the Tsunami was found. The Japanese army then found 400 corpses in the port of Rikuzentakata. Its capital is Morioka. In total, the Japanese disaster was 19.485 people dead or missing.
Tourists who travel a thorough benefit more from this new policy. The tourist brochure states that "the tourist can admire the human landscapes in Sendai and Matsushima, feel the power of the urban renaissance in Fukushima Japan and see a different perspective."
         It will install a "Gaiga kaunta (Geiger counter)"
at 16,000 yen (150 euros) and a combination of anti-nuclear triple of the price for walking in Sendai, to Matshushima and Fukuyama.
Avoid eating fruits, vegetables, fresh meat and especially fish. And especially compliments swallow iodine morning and evening to prevent thyroid cancer.
         Or just caulk in his hotel room (with tape, without air conditioning or heating). What kind of tourism will you do that?
          Currently tourism activities focus mainly on Okinawa, Hiragana, Hokkaido, Tokyo and Osaka.
