Five years on, Japan still having Fukushima nightmare

It is not easy to understand just why Japan still insists on remaining nuclear, given the massive wounds inflicted by the events of March 11, 2011

The Abe government has been eager to promote Japan's nuclear technology and construction capabilities to overseas buyers and abandoning nuclear now might not be seen as a gesture of confidence in its own abilities in this regard.
