This article posted on July 23, 2011 talks about the Farm of Hope. What is curious about this article is not what is actually written in the article, BUT what is found in the comments section. The blogger who wrote this article confirms that Shigeki Imamoto and politicians were already involved. Could it be that even as far back as July 2011, the farm was already involved with Radiation Research Studies or Radiation Decontamination Studies?
The Farm of Hope wrote on its blog that they have nothing to hide. Maybe they do not, it seems that the “Project Members” are the ones that are trying to hide. Why? On the one hand, they talk about “saving” the animals, and on the other hand, they are actively participating in using animals for testing purposes. Maybe they just don’t want to hurt their “popularity” with some people. It is odd that when it came to Shigeki Imamoto’s name on the Farm of Hope’s project list, he only wanted to use Shigeki with a reference to his blog site. http://fukushima-farmsanctuary.blogzine.jp/blog/about.html
From the blog:
“At last the long-awaited good news on Farm Sanctuary has come out. An official blog for the Field of Hope went live on July 22, 2011. …. No information on the field itself such as the size or what animals or how many of them are taken care of can be found. There are 4 individual names as project managers, let’s hope more details will be updated soon.”

……….. I see the project members whom I do not recognised. Dr. Imamoto has no idea who put this up. Also Rep Takayama’s name was Farm of Hope……………………..

Oh I’m so sure Dr. Imamoto knows who’s behind this website. There will be very likely no politicians’ name(s) to appear as project members though they helped establish it, but individuals’. The name, ‘Field of Hope’ is a directly-translated words and it could be ‘Farm of Hope’. But those animals shall not be used as farm animals anymore, so I find that a bit awkward to use the word ‘farm’… Anyway, it’s their call!………….
