In the aftermath of the mega-earthquake/tsunami disaster of 3/11 (March 11, 2011), it’s the Fukushima nuclear meltdown continues to cause, by far the largest discharge of radioactivity into the ocean ever seen*.
However, at least few Japanese like the street artist, 281_Anti-Nuke, are keeping up the fight against the radioactive Forces of Darkness.

In celebration of its “Golden Week” national holiday (3Yen / 2006-05-04), Japan has decided to re-start (japandailypress.com / 2013-03-24) all its unrepaired and failing nuclear reactors…

IT’S THAT TIME OF YEAR* AGAIN!
On the plate are “l’il Cthulhu”—bioluminescent Firefly Squid who normally live with Cthulhu’s Deep Ones†, but once a year waves push them to the surface in Japan’s Toyama Bay from March to June. YUM!

Bow before my trouser snake!
The Straw Snake at the top shows a fun Japanese local tradition that requires getting “bitten” for luck. According to the Asahi News–Fukushima | Jan. 07, 2012, every January 7th, the kids of the Aizu district stop at houses and have the straw snake bite the head of the household to pray for health, prosperity, ample rain and a rich harvest. About 15 children under the age of 13 parade around the village carrying a 7 meter long straw snake that weighs about 30 kg. The Aizu district is in Fukushima Prefecture (home of the infamous nuclear power plant meltdown).
Throughout Asia, 2012 is the Year of the Snake (HebiNoGonenshi) making the straw snake’s bite especially auspicious even though the concentration of radioactive Cesium-137 of the rice straw in the Aizu district is 2,200 becquerels/kg (Japan’s provisional safety limit is 500 becquerels/kg set by the national government—EXSKF blog).
Learn more about the Straw Snake parade at the website of Aizu Misato-cho’s Office of Tourism (Google Translate). View additional photos the straw snake at Yahoo News and Asahi.com.
Put on your tin-foil geisha hats (see right) and wonder if a WWII-era ‘Tsunami Bomb’ was finally tested causing Japan’s Great Cataclysm of March 11, 2011…
‘Tsunami bomb’ tested off New Zealand coast
telegraph.co.uk | 01 Jan 2013
The tests were carried out in waters around New Caledonia and Auckland during the Second World War and showed that the weapon was feasible and a series of 10 large offshore blasts could potentially create a 33-foot tsunami capable of inundating a small city.
The top secret operation, code-named “Project Seal”, tested the doomsday device as a possible rival to the nuclear bomb…blasting operations to clear coral reefs around Pacific islands sometimes produced a large wave, raising the possibility of creating a “tsunami bomb”…more…

Realizing there is a gaping gap in Glico’s Pocky lineup*, Japan is obviously stockpiling for the introduction of plutonium-flavored Pocky!
Fair Use — Parody
Japan sticks to plan for extracting plutonium, but has little use for the tons it already has
Washington Post (AP News) December 28, 2012
…a high-tech facility that would convert spent fuel into a plutonium-uranium mix designed for the next generation of reactors… supposed to provide fuel while minimizing nuclear waste storage problems. Those ambitions are falling apart because years of attempts to build a “fast breeder” reactor, which would use the reprocessed fuel, appear to be ending in failure…more…

In a scenero worthy of a cheesy Godzilla/Kaiju movie… mutant, female, horned, hermaphroditic, stag beetles are arising just outside the Fukushima nuclear meltdown area.
Mutant Bugs Found
enenews.com | December 22, 2012
…The bugs were collected in Ibaraki [the prefecture bordering Fukushima at Ushiku city].
…The hermaphrodite beetle in is the middle…female legs and body shape but a male head and claws.
The End of Japan (the rest of world is inconsequential) is foretold in the 12th Tzolkin of the Mayan Calendar. The prophecy IS coming true today, December 21st!

Self contained, LED based, hydroponically grown, vegitable operations shown below have been the dampdream of the once-mighty-now-moribund Japan Inc. for decades: (3Yen / 2010-01-13)— Turnkey grow-ops in a container.
So, it only makes Japanese “sense” to create air-conditioned, LED-based, indoor grow ops that intensively use electricity from nuclear power plants to replace the farm land despoiled with radioactive fallout of the Fukushima nuclear meltdowns—Even though 40% of the farmland in other parts of Japan is fallow or abandoned because depopulation and the lack of willing-to-farm heirs to Japanese farms.
Cultivation of LED-Based Plant Growth Facility in Fukushima
Press Release | Nov. 21, 2012
SDK Corp. has decided to provide Kawauchi Village, Fukushima Prefecture, with a new cultivation method for LED-based plant growth facilities for free… Compared with conventional LED-based plant growth facilities, the new method shortens shipment cycles and increases the amount of harvest through the irradiation of red and blue lights at optimized ratios for plant growth…SDK has decided to license the technology for free to assist the village’s reconstruction efforts...more...
