I posted these pictures of Daigo Fukuryumaru-Lucky Dragon No.5 fishing boat, which I took at Daigo Fukuryumaru museum in Yumenoshima.
It is free museum exhibits a several ten meter fishing boat which was exposed by nuclear test around Bikini in 1954.
I knew about the museum long time ago, but I had never visited. Because I had never any reality about the nuclear test in the mid 20 century and I was thinking it was all done and never happen again.
But the same materials hit Fukushima, East Japan, whole Japan and north hemisphere by catastrophe of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear plant since 3.11, 2011.
I went to there by bike. The place is quite middle of nowhere in Koto-ku by Tokyo bay. Atmosphere of the location is laid back.
The staff of museum explains what happened the crews of Daigo Fukuryumaru after exposed, and about Bikini people after nuclear test. I found a several connection and the common things of Fukushima and them.

wheelhouse. Looks could still work.
The aim of Daigo-Fukuryumaru is to catch Tunas. Tunas are distributed to Tsukiji, then become Sushi around Tokyo area.
The most of body is made by wood.
‘This is the entrance for the wide world’ by poet Arthur Binard.
He has lived in Japan since 1990. His keen insight and deep knowledge of Japan, gives diverse ideas to survive for any ages.
Daigo Fukuryumaru was left for awhile in Ymeno Shima by Tokyo bay in 1967.
I am interested whole radiation dose of Daigo Fukuryumaru.
Detected 27 kinds of nuclear fission product in death ash which was fell on deck of the boat.
White powder is coral? Nuclear fission attached it?
Massive nuclear tunas were buried around Tsukiji fish market in the mid 1950’s.
Deformation of the plants were detected everywhere in contaminated area by radiation around the world. In the case of Fukushima, we have already got the many reports about it in whole country.
The body of Daigo Fukuryumaru.
There is possibility in everywhere cold become the same situation like Bikini in this picture, Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Central Asia, local of uranium main, Three mile island, Chernobyl, Falluja and Fukushima.
Body of Daigo Fukuryumaru
It is placed at outside of the museum.
Some parts were reused in 1950’s.
‘I hope I am the last victim by nuclear’ by crew Kuboyama, died liver damage by exposed.
Flowers around memorial stone. Because Kuboyama loved flowers.
This stone of tunahill was supposed place in Tsukiji where buried exposed tunas,
but it had nevre happened and placed at this quiet place.
Engine and shelter.
