Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida tasted sashimi of flatfish, sea bass, and octopus caught off the coast of Fukushima Prefecture to dispel concerns about discharge of treated water from Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant.

Footage filmed in Prime Minister’s Official Residence in Tokyo, on Wednesday, shows Kishida dining together with Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry Yasutoshi Nishimura, Minister of State for Children’s Policy Masanobu Ogura and Minister of Finance Shunichi Suzuki.

« The seafood of Sanriku Johban is full of charm. We too enjoyed it just right away. It is currently holding a campaign in support of Sanriku Johban products. You can enjoy the season’s best ingredients at ekiben (boxed meals) and online shopping. We hope you will also support safe and delicious Japanese seafood, » Kishida said.

Tokyo has scheduled the release of more than one million metric tons of the water used to cool Fukushima’s damaged reactors, starting with 7,800 cubic metres over 17 days from Thursday, August 24.

An inquiry by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) found that the proposal to release the water was ‘consistent’ with international safety standards and would have a ‘negligible’ impact on people and the environment.

The plan has faced strong opposition from the fishing community and neighbouring countries including China.
