Japan

The government declared the threat from the Sept. 30 nuclear accident in Tokaimura to be over. The accident occurred at a uranium processing plant about 75 miles northeast of Tokyo and exposed at least 49 people to radiation. Little was revealed, however, about how much and precisely what kind of radiation was released, so travel to the area, especially to the core region within a six mile radius of the plant, should be avoided.
