In this Wednesday, June 12, 2013 photo, the crippled Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant is seen through a bus window in Okuma, in Fukushima prefecture. More than two years after Japan’s nuclear disaster, damaged vehicles, twisted metal and other debris remain strewn about the Fukushima plant. Japan's nuclear watchdog has formally approved new safety requirements for atomic plants, paving the way for the reopening of facilities shut down since the Fukushima disaster. The new requirements approved Wednesday, June 19, by the Nuclear Regulation Authority will take effect on July 8, when operators will be able to apply for inspections. If plants pass inspection, they can reopen. (AP Photo/Noboru Hashimoto, Pool)
