Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Japan is still in active denial about exclusion zones.

Active and vociferous, it would seem.

Thanks for the translation. I obviously mistook wind for solar -- one word I thought I recognized. :-) I had already looked up three or four words, so you can see why I didn't attempt my own translation.

But the same reasoning should apply to solar installations as to wind. Japan is pushing residential solar with feed in tariffs and installation subsidies, so solar energy farms on otherwise unusable land might be a way to finesse the habitability issue.From the info I dug up quickly on Google it seems the best wind locations are offshore south of Tokyo Bay, and on the north west and north east coast of Honsu. Unfortuantely, the polluted waters off Fukushima are relatively windless.
