Japanese media toured the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant on Wednesday ahead of the removal of used nuclear fuel rods from the plant's crippled reactor. The plant was badly damaged in the aftermath of a March 2011 earthquake and tsunami. Last week, Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), which operates the stricken plant, announced plans to remove the first fuel rods in reactor no. 4 in the coming days. Reactor no. 4 is one of three reactors that melted down after the disaster.
