ABSTRACT
The article presents information on Japan's nuclear power capabilities. Twenty three nuclear power plants produce 15.6 million kilowatts of electricity in Japan. Due to the growing energy consumption, the Japanese government has embarked on a crash program for nuclear power under which nuclear power would supply 30 percent of Japan's total electricity by the year 2000. Many nuclear fuel reprocessing plants and fast breeder test reactors are being set up. However, an obstacle to the program is public opposition for concern about safety procedures of some nuclear plants. Nuclear waste disposal seems to be another concern.
