Japan Power Shortages

Due to the shutdown of its nuclear reactors, which provided nearly 30% of the nation's power, Japan will be experiencing power shortages again during the summer months.

If you'll be traveling to Japan, prepare yourself for the possibilities of subway delays, reduced lighting and reduced air-conditioning.
