Protestors are gathering at the Ohi nuclear power plant in central Japan ahead of the restart of one of its reactors on Sunday evening.
Members of groups opposing the first restart of idled reactors in the country began assembling near the plant’s gate from Saturday evening.
They are blocking a road leading to the plant, some using vehicles.
Some protestors are holding banners that call for no reactivation. Others shouted slogans and beat drums.
Kansai Electric Power Company says the presence of protestors is making it difficult for workers to enter the site, but that the plant’s operations have not been affected.
