Radioactive Cesium (Cs-134 + Cs-137) (the Tokyo Metropolis and 7 Prefectures)_Figure

As a result of the inspection of radioactive materials in tap water conducted by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT), radioactive cesium was detected in the Tokyo Metropolis and 7 prefectures out of 47 prefectures nationwide. Highest concentrations were detected at the respective locations from March 20 to early April 2011, but radioactive cesium concentrations were relatively smaller than radioactive iodine concentrations. In and after April 2011, only small amounts of radioactive cesium were detected at some of these locations.
