Japan is preparing for a return to nuclear power production next month, four years after the earthquake and tsunami that led to the meltdown of reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi plant.
But there is strong opposition to the reopening of Japan's nuclear power plants, which were all gradually shut down after the disaster for safety upgrades.
As Cushla Norman reports from Tokyo, the restarts are unpopular with a public still grappling with the world's worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl.
