Very high levels of radioactive cesium along the planned torch relay route for the Tokyo Olympics?

“With the upcoming XXXII Olympiad in 2020 hosted by Japan, it is necessary to look into the radioactivity of Olympic venues as well as tourist attractions in the host cities. Previous studies pose a major gap because they focused on regions that are closer to the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, where the highest concentration of radioactive fallout is located. On the other hand, the radioactivity in other locations in Japan is relatively less studied. Since thousands of athletes and millions of visitors are travelling to Japan for the Olympics, there has been widespread concern from the international community about radiation exposure. Therefore, it is important to investigate the extent of radioactive fallout from the Fukushima Dai-ichi incident.”

I copied the above from this blog:

I wonder why on earth these places that might very well still be radioactive cannot be avoided for the torch route?

Here is another sample from this very interesting blog:

I think it is well worth having a look at this site:
