Japan's outgoing Prime Minister Naoto Kan shared candid thoughts on the Fukushima nuclear disaster in an interview this week. “Deserted scenes of Tokyo without a single man around came across my mind,” he told Asahi Shimbun, describing his state of mind immediately after March 11. “It really was a spine-chilling thought.” After the disaster, Kan is now opposed to the use of nuclear power in Japan.
