June 30 (Bloomberg) -- Bloomberg's Stuart Biggs reports from Oma, northern Japan, on the construction of a new nuclear power station set to open in 2014. Atsuko Ogasawara’s family rejected offers of more than $2 million for their property during a two-decade bid to prevent Electric Power Development Co., a utility also known as J-Power, from building the station. The family’s log bungalow, now surrounded by J-Power’s land, is a focal point for Japan’s antinuclear movement, attracting letters and visits from supporters across Japan. Ogasawara says the bungalow forced the company to move the reactor 250 meters (270 yards) away. (Source: Bloomberg)
