Casual wear campaign


In this Tuesday, May 1, 2012 file photo, ministry workers sport a relaxed look as they leave their offices in Tokyo as the government's "Cool Biz" casual wear campaign is launched Tuesday, May 1, 2012. The Cool Biz encourages workers to dress down while turning down air conditioners to set office temperatures at 28 degrees Celsius (82.4 degrees Fahrenheit). On May 5, the last of the country's 50 usable nuclear reactors will be switched off, completely idling a power source that once supplied a third of Japan's electricity. At a time when temptation to set the aircon to deep freeze is at its greatest, companies and ordinary Japanese will be obliged to economize amid temperatures that can climb above 40 degrees Celsius (104 Fahrenheit).
