The head of a major investigation into Japan’s nuclear disaster is defending his report against criticism that his panel avoided blaming individuals and instead blamed elements of the nation’s culture.
Kiyoshi Kurokawa, a doctor who headed the Fukushima Nuclear Accident Independent Investigation Commission, said he sticks with his view that the catastrophe was “Made in Japan,” underlining collusion among the regulators and the utility that had set off the worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl. He said his panel intentionally stopped short of naming individual culprits.
“No one takes responsibility in Japan, even those in positions of responsibility,” Kurokawa told The Associated Press this week at his commission office in Tokyo. “This is unique to Japan, a culture that stresses conformity, where people don’t complain.”

and then this from a reply:

In an age of Internet and information...this is a fax worthy report. Scew it into a ball put it in the bin. It's a system run by people who rely on abnormal business practice, example people living in school gyms, second biggest economy can't /will not help it's own. An obvious attempt to produce rems of paper that lead....nowhere. Problem solved."


"The 641-page report, released in July, compiled interviews with 1,167 people and scoured documents obtained from nuclear regulators and Tokyo Electric Power Co, the utility that operated Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.
A devastating March 2011 tsunami set off by a 9.0 magnitude quake destroyed backup generators and sent Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant into multiple meltdowns and explosions. About 150,000 people were evacuated from a 20-kilometer no-go zone. Fears remain in Fukushima about cancer and other sickness from radiation."
