Unconfirmed Report

Is Japan planning to move its capitol?

As powerful earthquakes continue to jolt Japan and radiation levels near Tokyo are rising, the Asian country's authorities are considering moving the capital to another city.

The most probable location for a new capital are Osaka and Nagoya, according to ITAR-TASS. Both cities are located near international airports.

The main conditions the new capital has to provide are a population over 50 000 and a sufficient capacity to accommodate the parliament, the government, the Emperor's residency and the foreign diplomatic missions.
The site linked above is in Bulgaria and the site quoted is Russian.

This report is at this point in time totally off the wall. But maybe they are anticipating the monsoon winds of June - August as noted in Fukushima Exclusion Zone Map.
