After organising a week of demonstrations in front of his official residence in Tokyo, anti-nuclear activists have been invited inside to meet the Japanese prime minister face to face.
Protests have been growing in the country - which is still recovering from last year's Fukushima nuclear accident - since Mr Yoshihiko Noda ordered two reactors to be restarted in June.
