The story from the business website Nikkei.com spells out without saying it just how severe the alleged ongoing radiation leaks from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster really is:

TOKYO (Nikkei)–A Cabinet Office council has proposed five cities — Osaka, Sapporo, Sendai, Nagoya and Fukuoka — to replace Tokyo as the seat of government should an earthquake knock out the capital.
In an interim report issued Thursday, the Central Disaster Management Council outlined steps to prepare for a major offshore quake in the Nankai Trough, which runs southwest from Shizuoka Prefecture to Kyushu, or a direct hit on Tokyo.
The government will seek funding for the most urgently needed measures in next fiscal year’s budget.
The council’s report is the first proposal to establish a command center outside the greater Tokyo area to replace the Prime Minister’s Office in the event it becomes incapacitated by a quake. Under the current planning, the first standby option is the Cabinet Office, followed by the Ministry of Defense and the disaster base in Tachikawa near central Tokyo.
The five cities proposed by the council all have branches of the national government and the Bank of Japan. The report recommends that the government put them in order of succession.
Of course the government will deny this is related to Fukushima but only a fool would believe otherwise. The radioactive material being deposited on the citizens of Tokyo and other major Japanese cities in the central and northern regions of the country near the Fukushima disaster are telling a tale of disaster far beyond a direct hit by “the big one” hitting Tokyo again. As has been discussed on my radio program and theorized at length, the industrialists and wealth of Japan are preparing and actively abandoning the northern half of the nation as it becomes uninhabitable.
