This 30 year old Steven Danieletto, the IT Manager for the English info magazine in Tokyo called Metropolis. He is seen here taking geiger counter readings in the Roppongi District of Tokyo. Danieletto, an Australian expat living in Tokyo, is a science major has been intrigued by all this radiation danger. So he began taking daily samples and posting them on youtube. His readings has been a relief to many expat living in Tokyo as many distrust official Japanese figures. But according to Danieletto, the air quality in Tokyo is safe at the moment, averaging about 0.02 micro sieverts, except for one day last week when there was a spike in which normal levels were 20 times higher. He also discovered that many plants have been getting double the amount of readings, especially due to the past three days of rain. Japanese officials have announced that there are low levels of radiation in spinach, milk, and now drinking waters which has been causing many Japanese to hoard food and bottled water. When this photo was taken on March 24, 2011, it was nearly impossible to find bottled water anywhere in the Tokyo area.
