All the power companies paid the local communities billions of yen every year in order to host their nuclear plants.

Kansai power force to shut two reactors which don't meet the new regulations to protect them against terrorism. Same with Kyushu power who too have to shut down two reactors for the same reason.

Over the past eight decades all of the power companies have filled the pockets of the LDP.

Why pretend that this is a one-off example? All of these quasi-governmental organizations that provide employment for ex-bureaucrats are corrupt - as is the practice of employing ex-bureaucrats in a capacity to oversee their former ministries. A huge waste of the taxpayers' money.

In other news, a bear was sternly reprimanded for inappropriate use of forested sites, and His Holiness was ordered to improve his choice of religion.

So not only the company but also the audit company just silently overlooked the bribery whole time...?

Confirmed, Japan is a Corporatocracy, an economic and political system controlled by corporations or corporate interests. It is a form of Plutocracy.
