Tokyo Electric Power Co. plans to move its Fukushima reconstruction headquarters to the town of Tomioka, which is closer to the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant, officials said.

The town, which is within 20 km of the plant, is part of the nuclear evacuation zone caused by the plant’s triple core meltdown in March 2011. The town plans to start letting residents return in fiscal 2017 after finishing decontamination work.
