Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda is planning to visit Tokyo Electric Power Co.'s Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant on Oct. 7, it has been learned.
By choosing the plant as the destination for his first official trip following a Cabinet reshuffle expected to take place Monday, Noda aims to show his intention to continue putting priority on tackling the crisis, and resolving related issues, sources said.
The prime minister last visited the nuclear power station in Fukushima Prefecture on Sept. 8 last year, about six months after a triple meltdown at the complex triggered by the March 11, 2011, megaquake and tsunami.
