A grouping of hot spots were found earlier this week in Ginza, Tokyo.

An elementary school located in Ginza, Chuo-ku, Tokyo was found with a 0.80 microsievert/hour radiation spot, and a kindergarten, also in Chuo-ku, was found with 0.56 microsievert/hour spot.

EX-SKF translates the story and mentions these involved drains and asphalt, including an area near a school. Read the details at EX-SFK

Today another hot spot was found in Setagaya, Tokyo. There was an earlier one found in Setagaya that turned out to be a stash of radium paint under a home. This one is at a grocery store and registered 110 micro sV/h. Fukushima Diary has details, photo and map. Yahoo news Japan confirms the story.

The city of Kashiwa is still struggling to deal with the hot spot recently found there as the radiation levels are too high for any of their staff to handle. They are asking for help from national government experts to deal with the decontamination.
