The power plant on the Sea of Japan coast has received the first shipment of reprocessed nuclear reactor fuel sent from France since the 2011 disaster that forced it to shut down reactors. Operators of the plant are hoping to use the fuel once they get the go-ahead to restart their reactors. (AP Photo/Kyodo News) JAPAN OUT, MANDATORY CREDIT
