Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Not a chance. Only way Japan exits fission completely is if an unexpected technical breakthrough, such as one of the projects working on very smallscale hot fusion (polywell. Focus fusion. The very.. atompunky project the canadians got going with "Pistons and very precise timing!") succeeds obsoletes the entire panolpy of power generation techs - The extant fleet of reactors averages a fairly low age, and even with heroic renewable efforts, would have to be replaced mostly by imported fossil fuels.

.. Which is not a development to be hoped for.
