Japan’s Prime Minister Naoto Kan on Saturday visited the prefecture at the centre of a nuclear crisis sparked by the March quake and tsunami, amid reports his government may reduce the evacuation zone.

Kan, in his fifth visit to Fukushima prefecture since the disaster, held talks with governors from 12 villages and towns from the region, Jiji Press news agency said.

"I will take measures by listening carefully to your opinions," Kan was quoted as saying at the start of the meeting at a hotel in Koriyama, some 60 kilometres (37 miles) from the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.
