Oct. 22, 2014 - Updated 14:20 UTC+2
The local government hosting the Sendai nuclear power plant in southern Japan will hold an additional briefing for residents. It will mainly be about evacuation plans in the event of a nuclear accident.
Kagoshima Prefecture has already held sessions on safety measures by the plant operator, Kyushu Electric Power Company, in 5 municipalities around the nuclear plant, ending Monday.
Last month, Japan's nuclear regulators approved the measures, saying they met revised government requirements for restarting the nuclear plant.
The prefecture will hold an extra session on October 29th in Hioki City near the plant.
Government and prefectural officials will explain evacuation procedures and other emergency measures. Power company staff will describe its safety steps.
