Incidence of disease in Japan prior to establishment of nuclear industry:
No data available that I can find. When authorities come to compare Fukushima close in cohort with whole of Japan, the pre existing rate of disease will attenuate impact of Fukushima Disaster.

The characteristics of the 4-prefecture data are described in the following paper.

From Mark Willacy’s “Fukushima” “A world health organisation study would later warn that, of all people in the fallout zone during the Fukushima meltdowns, infants in Namie would be at the greatest risk of developing thyroid cancer later in childhood. The WHO report said that, while cancer cases in Fukushima caused by radiation would not rise significantly, for a two year baby girl in Namie the incidence rate of thyroid cancer would increase nine times (Willacy citing Yuri Oiwa “WHO Forecasts No Significant Increase in Cancer Patients, the Asahi Shimbun 11 July 2012 http://ajw.asahi.com/article/0311disaster/fukushima/AJ201207110058

(The content of the article actually makes the headline very misleading. WHO actually predicts an explosion of female thyroid cancers in Namie.) THE FACT IS, AS REVEALED BY THE DATA PRESENTED AS A GRAPH ABOVE, THE NUMBER OF FEMALE THYROID CANCER PER ANNUM SUFFERERS HAS INCREASED NINE TIMES SINCE 1975. We cannot see the numbers from 1945 to 1974 for the whole of Japan because they seem not to exist. We cannot do a pre nuke industry/ post nuke industry establishment comparison of this, or any other illness.
