Japanese nuclear companies face increasing public anger


The nuclear industry in Japan is facing increasing public anger, as energy companies look to restart some of the countries nuclear power stations.

There have been several street protests, including outside the shareholder meetings of Tokyo Electric Power (Tepco) and at Kansai Electric.

The anger stems from concerns over safety in the wake of last year's earthquake and tsunami.

Frode Pleym from Greenpeace told the BBC's Asia Business Report that Japan doesn't have to rely so much on nuclear power.
