"MEXT is recording radiation dosage readings every three hours in the region 20 km and greater from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant."

I'm not sure how correct it is to identify this as MEXT readings. Now, I'm fine if you say that MEXT is reporting readings every so-and-such often.

I like this site:

And I find the data sources to be interesting. He allocates the readings to the prefectures themselves, which could be most correct for all I know. I would think that the ultimate driver for taking all the readings would be a cabinet office, yes, but I don't know if we have enough information to determine that.

You're quite right. The observations at [32] and [83] were recorded by JAEA (Japan Atomic Energy Agency) and reported by MEXT.
