70 years since the Bikini Incident: Symposium to think about nuclear damage around the world. The so-called bikini incident in which the crew of the Japanese tuna fishing boat "Daigo Fukuryu Maru" and others were exposed to radiation during the hydrogen bomb test conducted by the United States in the Marshall Islands in the Pacific Ocean.

Experts, atomic bomb survivors, and others presented their research results at the symposium in Tokyo's Chiyoda Ward. In a panel discussion, Masao Tomonaga, a Nagasaki atomic bomb survivor and doctor, said that discussions about establishing an international fund to assist nuclear victims and restore the environment in the affected areas was more important than nuclear weapons.
