If a typical nuclear reactor uses about 150 tonnes of fuel and goes through it in 5 years, 3000 tonnes per year is the fuel of 100 reactors, and Rokkasho should be able to serve 30 reactors. Japan has 53 reactors in operation, so Rokkasho won't reduce the need to reprocess fuel in France or store increasing amounts of fuel at the reactors themselves.
