    Chew, as I've tried to explain in this article:
    https://www.worldnomads.com/travel-safety/japan/how-dangerous-is-the-radiation-in-japan
    Unless you stood inside the broken reactor building in Fukushima, it is extremely unlikely you have been exposed to anything above normal background radiation limits.
    Even if you ate beef from cows that grazed inside the Fukushima exclusion zones, you'd have to eat a whole cow to reach un-safe levels.
    You were exposed to 3 times higher-than-normal background radiation levels on the plane flight over to Japan, but does that worry you? The radiation levels in Tokyo are generally low by world standards (New York and London are more radioactive).
    Don't worry.
