Distance between Kyoto and Tokyo

Some visitors told me that they did not know the distance between Kyoto and Tokyo and were concerning about the safety level in Kyoto due to the nuclear power plant accidence. You can also compare with other cities on the list.

Kyoto - Tokyo: 515 km (320 miles)
Los Angeles - San Francisco: 614 km (382 miles)
Boston - Philadelphia: 513 km (319 miles)
Berlin - Frankfurt: 496 km (308 miles)
Paris - Bordeaux: 583 km (362 miles)
Canberra - Newcastle: 437 km (271 miles)
Zurich - Geneva: 259 km (160 miles)

The U.S. Department of State said,

"Consistent with the NRC guidelines that would apply to such a situation in the United States, we are recommending, as a precaution, that U.S. citizens within 50 miles (80 kilometers) of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant evacuate the area or to take shelter indoors if safe evacuation is not practical."

Kyoto is 725 km (450 miles) away from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant.
