390 mg/kg of lead was measured from the soil of the play ground of a nursery school in Yokohama.

It has been prohibited to use the play ground since 3/23, none of the health problem has been reported so far.

Yokohama city government will cover the ground with a sheet, is planning to change the soil or cover it with concrete pavement.
