A. According to the official statement by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, the radiation level measured in Tokyo is much lower than what one gets from activities such as a return air trip from Tokyo to New York (0.2 milli sieverts/round trip) or a stomach x-ray (0.6 milli sieverts/examination). In addition, WHO and Bureau of Waterworks Tokyo Metropolitan Government, radiation level found in drinking water has been staying very low so that there is no problem to drink water.

Kyodo News reported on April 14 [Thur], 2011, the radiation level in Tokyo stays 0.079 micro sieverts/hour and this level is much lower than other metropolitan cities all over the world. For example, 1.77 times more radiation level in Hong Kong and 40 times more radiation level in India have been measured. Comparing to those two cities, it is clear that Tokyo is quite safe. (Cited from Kyodo News, April 14 [Thur], 2011, English Version)
