I went to the Hiagari Incineration Facility yesterday evening. It is one of the two facilities that Kitakyushu city tries experimental combustion of radioactive contaminated garbage. Another one is the Shinmoji Incineration Facility.
I went there to take photo to show how the facility is close to the Kitakyushu City Central Wholesale Market which deals with vegetables and fisheries.
As shown in upper image, this Incineration Facility is just beside Market. The distance between facility chimney and market sign is only about 1000 ft (305 m). I think it is very close.
Kitakyushu city starts experimental combustion of radioactive contaminated garbage next week
Protest Kitakyushu city and Stop diffusion of radioactive garbage
