Greeting

Last year, Pope Francis visited Peace Memorial Park and spread a message of peace to the world, gathering much attention from both within Japan and throughout the world. Now, this year, I expect that the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games will bring an unprecedented number of people from all over the world to Hiroshima.

This year, we will make the most of these opportunities as we engage in continuous development of Hiroshima based on the three pillars of vitality and excitement, work/life balance, and sharing the ideals of peace, as we aim to become a world-class town.

First, regarding vitality and excitement, we will hold the 37th National Urban Greenery Hiroshima Fair, the Hiroshima Hana-no-Wa 2020. Using local resources including flowers and greenery unique to Hiroshima, we hope to generate touring and interaction throughout the entire Prefecture, as well as share the importance of flowers and greenery and the value of peace with people from all over the world. We will also engage in creating more bustle through projects including the renovation to the south plaza around Hiroshima Station.

Next, with regard to work/life balance, we will move forward with efforts towards achieving a regional cohesive society, such as expanding the area management system for public health nurses to all areas and promoting use of the Senior Citizens Iki-Iki Point System by making more people eligible to participate. We would also like to engage in making Hiroshima Castle even more attractive and developing a town filled with music, such as by installing street corner pianos and the like.

Lastly, with regard to sharing the ideals of peace, this year marks the 75th anniversary of the atomic bombing. In order to convey the tragedy to the atomic bombing to the next generation, we will implement memorial projects including atomic bomb and peace exhibitions in Tokyo during the Olympic and Paralympic Games. Furthermore, by sending more students from various municipalities to the Peace Memorial Ceremony and encouraging the young generation to take the lead in activities calling for peace in the future, we aim to promote efforts for the atomic bombing survivors who are getting older to pass on the baton of peace to the young generation who will lead the future.

In the Chinese zodiac, this year is the Year of the Rat. As the Rat is the start of the Chinese zodiac, we hope to make this year a new beginning for Hiroshima, continuing to work so that this city becomes a driving force for the wider Hiroshima urban area, working together with neighboring municipalities to achieve continuous development into the future.

Furthermore, we would like to make this a year in which your wishes come true, as we aim to achieve a world-class town Hiroshima, as well as the abolition of nuclear weapons and lasting world peace.
