Japan is due to switch on a nuclear reactor for the first time in nearly two years as Prime Minister Shinzo Abe seeks to reassure a nervous public that tougher standards mean the sector is now safe after the Fukushima disaster in 2011. The head of Japan's atomic watchdog has said that the new safety regime meant a repeat of the Fukushima disaster would not happen, but protesters outside the Sendai plant are not convinced.

Survivors of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki attacks, 70 years ago this month, figure among a majority of Japanese opposing a plan to reboot reactors taken offline after the Fukushima nuclear disaster. On March 11, 2011, a massive tsunami devastated the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant in northeast Japan, triggering meltdowns, spewing radiation and forcing tens of thousands of residents to flee their homes, making it the world's worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl. The Sendai nuclear power station is expected to resume operations on August 10, the first to do so since Japan's nuclear plants were shuttered following the Fukushima disaster.
