On 6/2/2015, a Japanese citizen posted his radiation test video on Youtube. The measurement was implemented on the same day.

This person has been posting his measurement videos since 2 years ago.

The location is Haramachi-ku, Minamisoma city (map attached below). The radiation level was 1.1 μSv/h at about 1m above the ground (estimated) but it jumps up to over 12 μSv/h on the ground.

A city nursery school is only 200m from the measurement place. It is not known if the school is still open.

According to the municipal government, 2 of 5 public nursery schools are still open and 5 of 8 public kindergartens are also still open.
