If I recall, Japan's Fukushima disaster did not result in a meltdown, as the rods were cooled by water.

3 of the reactors at Fukushima did meltdown.

This is another example of how ridiculous Japan’s pursuit of nuclear power is. They built these MOX fuel plants to recycle nuclear fuel from other standard plants, but then, they gave up on the idea of creating MOX fuel in Japan. Now, all the savings they had planned on purchasing new fuel for standard plants will be going to overseas companies to make MOX fuel. Please tell me again how nuclear power is cheap and safe.

So your own comments says the cost has nothing to do with nuclear power, per se, but with a decision to not reprocess the fuel domestically.
