Tokyo Metropolitan Government
Current Governor of Tokyo is Ishihara Shintaro
Here is a "snapshot" of our new governor through the eyes of Ken Joseph
Jr, highly respected citizen of Japan, responsible for the Japan Helpline
and numerous other good works.
Mr. Ishihara is quite famous, among the foreign community in particular for disparaging remarks about foreigners. However, he has his hands full with enormous budget deficits (due to hugely reduced tax revenues) and has been the one to wield the ax. There has been a massive reorganization since April 1999, and the various web pages are all being re-worked and moved in part due to huge staff cuts and deletion of whole department sections.
