Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare(MHLW) Official Announcement:
As a result of overall efforts in adding electricity supply and conserving electricity, the supply-demand balance has improved significantly and rolling blackouts will not be implemented anymore throughout the year. While visitors from overseas to Eastern Japan may feel a little inconvenienced from less bright lights and some escalators are not in operation in train stations and buildings, we appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
