Kyodo News reported that a high court in western Japan rejected a lawsuit to shut down Shikoku Electric Power Co's only operating nuclear reactor. Kyodo said that a branch of the Yamaguchi District Court denied a legal bid by residents to shut the No. 3 reactor at the Ikata nuclear plant. The 890 megawatt reactor was restarted on Oct. 27 and is currently running at full capacity. The restart followed a Hiroshima High Court in late September that lifted a 2017 injunction blocking operations at the reactor.

Nuclear remains an unpopular energy option in Japan and the country will reboot only a fraction of the 54 reactors it had before the Fukushima disaster in 2011.
