A-bomb Survivors' Fukushima doubts - 4 Aug 2015
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.

Haranomachi Airfield Monument is a memorial for those who trained during the war at the airfield as pilots, including 'kamikaze' who flew on suicide missions, and for those from the Haranomachi area who died in the war. Kohata said he, too, might have flown to his death had not an army colonel told him not to quit school and train as a pilot. "There were many who died at the age of 16," he said. REUTERS/Toru Hanai
