Press Allowed In Fukushima Daiichi Again, Minimal Coverage Or Questions

TEPCO did another tour of Fukushima Daiichi for the press. This time they allowed some smaller media outlets and online reporters in.

Radiation on site was measured by reporters as 200 uSv/h inside the bus near the turbine building side of unit 3. TEPCO staff said some areas near there register 1500 uSv/h.
The NHK reporter cited 50 uSv/h on the hill far away from the reactors.  The Guardian found 102 uSv/h on that same hill. The Guardian did run a brief article that mentions reporters did repeatedly try to get answers about unit 2’s heat up and the continued boron injections but this was stonewalled by the plant manager. There is also a mention that during the worst, workers could only work in 2 minute bursts to keep their exposures low enough to continue working.

Details and images are minimal. Very few photos of the reactors themselves have been posted. More photos of J Village and the command center in the few that have been published.
EX-SKF has some images from Nico Nico 
Also some unedited video from Nico Nico
NHK has a video and some minor reporting.
Mainichi ran one photo and no story
The Guardian ran a short photo essay mostly of the command center

This article would not be possible without the extensive efforts of the SimplyInfo research team
