Tokyo smog

Hey dears,

how are you doing?Thanks for your positive feedback on my previous post

Today was a good day to wear a mask in Tokyo or rather two at once. Another polluted cloud arrived from China. (<Edit: meanwhile they've stated on the news, that the yellowish haze wasn't linked to China, but rather was a meteorological phenomenon caused by rapidly changing weather activity.)

Since it's "Kafun"(hay fever) -season in Japan, this becomes a double burden. The already polluted air gets mixed up with millions of tiny pollen. 

Two years after the Fukushima incident, radioactive particles are still around, clinging on said flower dust and "traveling" the country by the Japanese winds. 

Thankfully, their overall concentration is quite low, but sensitive people and kids are advised to wear masks by doctors and media.

...

Humans... *sigh*


Sorry dears, todays entry is rather serious. -But no matter where you are, there are always some negative sides.

  1. Es is ok auch mal ernste Posts zu machen..Blogs sollen ja nicht nur Heile welten suggerrieren, ich finde es gut wenn man über das schreibt was einem im Kopf vorgeht und das kann j auch mal negativ sein^^
    Ich hoffe diese Wolke geht bald wieder weg, das sieht ja schrecklich aus..und die Radioaktiviät..naja da kann man wohl kaum noch was machen :/ ich darf nich dran denken, für meine Mutter is das immer noch einer der Gründe warum sie mich am liebsten nicht gehen lassen will :(

    1. hey~❤danke für deinen Kommi... ich war wirklich etwas besorgt, bin ja noch Blogger-Newbie >.<"
      aww, ich kann deine Mom verstehen... meine macht sich auch immer Sorgen. Viele Menschen hier ignorieren die ganze Sache total... viele andere sind aber sehr wachsam und kaufen z.B. ganz bewusst keine Lebensmittel aus der betroffenen Region... ich glaube, wenn man gut auf sich aufpasst und die Augen nicht ganz vor der Realität verschließt, ist es nicht gefährlich.
