Token example of how radioactive is japan: the bullet train collects extremely radioactive dust

The Tohoku Shinkansen or bullet train that links Tokyo with Northern Honsu has been found to collect dust that is well above the already extremely lax industrial limit of 8,000 Bq/Kg (before the catastrophe it was 100Bq/kg), so it cannot be disposed by regular means, reports Fukushima Diary.

The train collects this dust most likely as it goes through Fukushima prefecture (map at right), which should be off limits to all normal human activities, in my not-so-humble opinion (following Chernobyl and most basic common-sense criteria).

We live in times of absolute madness. And Japanese even more so.
