Japan will be free of atomic power for the first time since 1966 on Saturday, May 5, when the Tomari No. 3 reactor, the last of its 50 usable reactors, is switched off for regular inspections. The central government would like to restart them at some point, but it's running into strong opposition from local citizens and governments.(AP Photo/Kyodo News) JAPAN OUT, MANDATORY CREDIT, NO LICENSING IN CHINA, HONG KONG, JAPAN, SOUTH KOREA AND FRANCE
