It's cloudy, may be raining a little. I have no idea how many people are showing up, but the police and the mainstream media seem more ready than last week.
Some photographs being tweeted by the participants. The protest has just started officially. People are shouting "saikado hantai!".
Yasuo Tanaka, head of the New Party Nippon (or Shinto Nippon), giving out white balloons (from @singo_mpc). I didn't even know he became a politician until last year after the Fukushima accident. All I knew of him was that he was a successful and popular novelist.
Mizuho Fukushima, head of the Social Democratic Party of Japan, is also at the protest. Kazuo Shii, head of the Japanese Communist Party, is at her side. No sign of any politicians from DPJ, LDP, or Komei Party.
