[Shift from nuclear] Ambassador to Japan, Kennedy visited Fukushima / Offshore wind farm IS the symbol of restoration

Caroline Kennedy, American ambassador to Japan stated that offshore wind farm in Fukushima is the symbol of restoration.

She visited the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant on 5/14/2014, and visited Fukushima FORWARD (Fukushima floating offshore wind farm demonstration project) on 5/15/2014. Fukushima FORWARD is the project to establish the business-model of the floating wind farm funded by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry.

She described it as a new chance after 311, it wouldn’t only produce new employments and industry but also the trade chance with the United States of America.

It sounds like that a part of American government is expecting Japan to be mature enough to shift away from nuclear policy.
