Well, in the kaijus' defense, Tokyo IS a paradise of gastronomic delights.

This is mind blowing - what the hell kind of regulation do they have in Japan?  I must be missing something.  For reference, here in the U.S., all nuclear facilities (NRC license and DOE) have to provide effluent, exhaust, environmental, etc. reports and they have to sample on a daily basis - and that is often multiple times a day.

For instance, consider an air exhaust system.  They are usually running a filter and an impinger or two filters in each exhaust vent and changing them out between 1 and 3 times a day.  The filters are pulled and run through counters where the results can be used to derive activity, concentration (uCi/mL or similar), 95% error and so on.  If *one* returned a spike, everything would shut the fark down.

Usually stuff is regulated up the Kaiju in Japan; it was the whole plot of Shin Godzilla.
