here is the problem if industry MUST HAVE ELECTRICITY to cooperate (think your job)Then you can't turn off a single reactor when a safety matter is uncovered. So everyone needs their job to survive so we role the dice and wait for the next disaster. Speek up and loose your livelyhood...or... turn in to sheople and pray. Baaaaaaaaad decision

No it is on purpose that we do not get this info in our news. who owns the news? Who builds this type of infrastructure? who wants to build more dangerous old nuc plants in the US?

Excellent report Junko!! One can understand the skepticism with which the Japanese public is viewing Tepco and the Japanese government now. But IMHO, in most other countries, things would have been far worse. This is a tribute to both the resilience and organized discipline of the Japanese people and to be fair, the professionalism, albeit inadequate to handle a disaster of this magnitude, of the institutions there.

@Junko, excellent report! While I am no expert in Japanese affairs, I think I understand what's happening there. Applying Western thought processes to understand what is happening there and find the best way forward does not help much in my opinion. The Japanese people will find their own way out of this tragedy. Yes, some individuals will be deemed hard done by but Japanese society as a whole will emerge from this crisis stronger. The balance between individual interests and societal interests varies from one country to another, and I do not think the West always gets it right by the way.

Your personal touch has brought out the human side of the grave situation which is getting worse by the hour. The Japan Times' latest report: "Radiation of up to 4,000 millisieverts per hour has been detected in the building housing the No. 1 reactor at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant, Tokyo Electric Power Co. says." We should not lose sight of this tragedy and are grateful for your reporting from the "trenches."
