Japanese nuclear companies face protests


Shareholder meetings taking place on Wednesday are likely to get quite heated for Japan's nuclear energy firms.

Protests are expected outside the meetings of Japan's Tokyo Electric Power (Tepco) and at Kansai Electric, the firm that will be the first to re-start two of it's nuclear reactors next week.

The BBC's Mariko Oi in Tokyo explains why the Japanese are so divided on nuclear power, following the disaster at the Fukushima power plant last year.
