Takamura is currently dedicated to acquiring valuable data about radiation using livestock currently living in the area near the Fukushima nuclear power plant.
Tsutomu Takamura went from being a needy student to an elite “salary man.” After deciding to pursue politics as the secretary for a politician, he went to China to study abroad. He created a unique career in this way, and was successfully elected for the first time in the previous House of Representatives general election. He is known as a particularly conservative controversialist even among the young members of the Democratic Party of Japan. Toshio Motoya spoke with Takamura, who is currently dedicated to acquiring valuable data about radiation using livestock currently living in the area near the Fukushima nuclear power plant, about the future of Japan.
From the interview:
Takamura Speaking of the effects of radiation, there are still domestic animals such as cows living in the affected areas. We will collect data about them and make it public in a reliable way. We have already gathered 500 domestic animals and created a system for collecting data. If we don’t do such things, Japan will become the laughing stock of the international community.
