Japan could restart nuclear reactors soon

TOKYO, Japan -- Japan could soon restart some of its nuclear plants for the first time since last year's Fukushima disaster.

Thursday, a mayor agreed to a proposal to restart two reactors at the Ohi nuclear power station.

Japan began allowing nuclear reactors to fall idle across the country following the Fukushima nuclear plant disaster in March last year, which was triggered by a devastating earthquake and tsunami. 

Many Japanese people don't agree with resuming the use of nuclear power.

The central government however, has argued Japan needs it to sustain its fragile economy.
