The problem in Japan is not the radiation levels in the air or the background radiation, which is in fact lower in Japan. The actual problem is the poisoning of the food chain, especially of the sea, with radioactive material.
But this is much more dangerous, because any radiation that has been ingested will accumulate in the body and is more likely to cause cancer than radiation in the air.
Therefore, the reasoning of the JTB unfortunately sounds like misleading propaganda.
