The Higashidōri Nuclear Power Plant (jap.

, Higashidōri genshiryoku hatsudensho) is located on the eastern side of the Shimokita Peninsula in Higashidōri Municipality, Aomori Prefecture. The 3.58 km2 plant has been on the grid since 2005 and is owned by Tōhoku Denryoku.

The boiling water reactor built by Toshiba[1] boiling water reactor was built after the experience with Onagawa-3 and went into operation in 2005. Tohoku is planning another reactor of the ABWR type with 1,385 MW gross power.

On an adjacent 4.5 km2 site, Tōkyō Denryoku (TEPCO) also plans to build two 1.385 MW ABWR reactors. Construction of the first unit began in January 2011.[2] After the Fukushima nuclear disaster, TEPCO initially halted work.

On December 1, 2011, reported[3]TEPCO abandoned the construction of Unit 1 due to lack of funds. However, TEPCO denied this report.[4] In March 2014, the Tepco reactors were listed in both the IAEA’s PRIS and the WNA.
