TOKYO--A Japanese power firm on Monday resumed construction of an atomic reactor stalled since the disaster at Fukushima, despite government plans to phase out nuclear power.
Electric Power Development, known as J-Power, said it had gone back to work on the plant in the country's north after getting the green light when the government announced its new energy policy aims last month.
The construction work in Oma, a town 650 kilometers (400 miles) north of Tokyo, is the first since the disaster at Fukushima in March 2011.
