Description

The Hamaoka Nuclear Power Plant (浜岡原子力発電所 Hamaoka Genshiryoku Hatsudensho, Hamaoka NPP) is a nuclear power plant located in Omaezaki city, Shizuoka Prefecture, on Japan's east coast, 200 km south-west of Tokyo.
On 6 May, 2011, Prime Minister Naoto Kan requested the plant be shut down in light of the fact that an earthquake of magnitude 8.0 or higher is estimated 87% likely to hit the area within the next 30 years.
Hamaoka is built directly over the subduction zone near the junction of two tectonic plates, and a major Tokai earthquake is said to be overdue. Japan is rethinking its nuclear energy after the march 2011 tsunami crippled the Fukushima nuclear power plant.
The Power plant is located on the sea shore, near the population living around, creating a fear that evacuation would be impossible in case of an accident.
