Japan has been for more than a year without a single watt of nuclear-generated electricity... and nothing has happened, demonstrating that Japan does not need the nuclear energy that is destroying the country and damaging its environs up to North America.
However the Japanese state has decided to reopen the nuclear power plant of Ooi.
As LaPrimavera says,
If the Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant accident taught us anything, it is that you cannot necessarily [remain able to] stop the plant when something bad does happen. All these politicians must be hoping that [a disaster] won't happen during their tenures.
