Yeah, the problem is people trying to raise a stink about something inconsequential rather than any actual risk. These releases have no health significance. Tritium doesn't concentrate in tissue and is removed from your system as water cycles through and is peed out. Fun fact: if nuclear workers in the cold war were exposed to huge tritium levels compared to this water, the treatment was to have them drink beer to flush it from their system.

I really wish we would spend our energy on real environmental risks.


i agree but you have to admit it that this sort of stuff gets tons of clicks
so mission accomplished?

I'm gonna retire in January, so I've planned a trip to Japan in early April. Have the flight in to Tokyo and then a hotel there for 7 nights. Sweet.

But...nothing planned afterwards, including no return flight. I'm thinking Kyoto? Maybe a VRBO instead of a hotel? Then where?

I was imagining coming home to SFO via Hawaii, to break up the flight and spend some time maybe in Oahu since we've never been.

Any ideas from you folks who have been in that area? I love planning - but I'm flying blindly at this point.

 
Sadly, I've never been but Kyoto is absolutely tops on my list. I really want to stay at least a night or two in a ryokan. Staying at a Temple would be cool, too.

I also want to see some of the pottery villages, but that may not be your cup of tea, so to speak. My partner liked Hokkaido a lot, but was working and didn't have a lot of time to tourist.
