Article Photos: Nowhere to use Japan's growing plutonium stockpile 16/17

In this Nov. 9, 2012 photo, a shy souvenir shop worker covers up her face as she walks by a seafood display in Oma, Aomori Prefecture, northern Japan. In nearby Oma, construction is set to resume on an advanced reactor that is not a fast-breeder but can use more plutonium than conventional reactors. Its construction, begun in 2008 for planned operation in 2014, has been suspended since the March 2011 Fukushima nuclear meltdowns, and could face further delays as Japan's new nuclear watchdog prepares new safety guidelines. The sign reads: Sightseeing Souvenirs specially from Oma. The northernmost shop in Japan's main island of Honshu. (AP Photo/Koji Sasahara)
