Asahi Shimbun: Japan's Most Dangerous Reactors


http://www.asahi.com/english/TKY201206280297.html

"The No. 1 and No. 2 reactors at Fukui Prefecture's Oi nuclear power plant are the most dangerous in Japan, according to a cross-party group of lawmakers opposed to nuclear power."

You can read about the Oi Nuclear Plant here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C5%8Ci_Nuclear_Power_Plant

Japan plans on re-starting reactors 3 and 4 at Oi. Next likely re-start on the agenda is Ikata.

"Two seismic experts publicly warned that the government is under-estimating the threat to these reactors which are located very near a seismic fault. And a group of lawmakers cutting across political parties released a danger ranking of 50 nuclear reactors in Japan calling for their phased decommissioning."

"The nuclear power plant in Ikata, operated by Shikoku Electric Power Co., is currently seen as a likely candidate to be the next nuclear reactor to be restarted." (Westlake http://japandailypress.com/tag/fukui)
