Mt. Shinobu is the place where events related to environment hosted by fukushima city office frequently are held. Our Labo have also done workshops related to acoustic environmental education here at least once a year for a decade.
In this season in usual years, many people visit this mountain to enjoy verdure. However, no one was there at the recording day: Fukushima Prefecture alerted that a radiation dose of one of the parks in this mountain (Parks in the above pictures are not the park) is too high to visit.
Similar to Kotori no Mori, the real silent spring people, instead of birds, do not sing and speak in this mountain. This is the "real silent spring" caused by radioactive contaminations.
