» Kennedy visit Fukushima No.1 plant for the first time

U.S. Ambassador to Japan Caroline Kennedy visited Fukushima for the first time since she assumed her post last November and toured the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

Clad in protective gear and mask, Kennedy toured the plant to see the situation firsthand at a time when Japan and the United States are cooperating in decommissioning and cleaning up the troubled power plant.

“We are committed to providing support as long as it is necessary,” Kennedy said in a statement released after her visit to Fukushima No.1 plant.
