This article from the Greenfield, Massachusetts, Recorder reports the impact of Russian atomic testing on Japan. A member of the Japanese Diet, or Parliament, reports that "radioactive ash" from a Russian blast in Siberia had fallen on the country. Japan was (and is) the only country to experience atomic attack, having been bombed twice by nuclear weapons at the end of the Second World War. Atomic tests in the Pacific region caused great concern in Japan. An American test in Pacific on March 1, 1954 caused radiation burns to Japanese fisherman. Relatively little was known in the early 1950s about the indirect impacts of nuclear testing, particularly so-called "nuclear fallout."
