A boat of the Japan Coast Guard patrols in front of the No. 3 reactor (L) at the Takahama nuclear plant in Takahama, Fukui prefecture, some 350 kilometres (215 miles) west of Tokyo on June 6, 2017. Kansai Electric Power (KEPCO) switched on the nuclear reactor on June 6 in a small victory for the government's pro-atomic push, despite strong public opposition after the 2011 Fukushima meltdown.
