Inamine’s Reaction To New Prime Minister

Date Posted: 2001-04-28

Governor Inamine spoke on Tuesday as a reaction to the new prime minister. He welcomed the new prime minister, Junichiro Koizumi and said it is the result of what the nation’s voice made the LDP move toward change. Then, he requested that he would put all his power into those issues that Okinawa has to solve, as he referred to the issues of US bases. Referring to the new cabinet that will be decided by this week, he said he wants a powerful and active person especially as a minister of Okinawa Development Agency. The governor is planning on trip to Tokyo on Thursday when the new cabinet is to be organized.

Lower House LDP members from Okinawa, Seiji Nakamura, Chiken Kakazu and Mikio Shimoji, all have the same impression on the new PM, which is “Completely Un-expectable” referring to his policy on Okinawa. Kakazu pointed out that the government workers rely on the direction of prime minister. He expressed his idea to urge PM to positively work on Okinawan issues such as relocation committee of MCAS and setting of development plan of Okinawa.

Festival to pray for good health and rich harvest “Miminme” was held on Tuesday in Ozato Village. The day falls on April first in old calendar. Wearing red and pink colorful kimono and headbands on, local kids gathered at the local community center holding fringed bamboo stick called Jiinaaku. They danced and amused about fifty audiences with folk song as they patted their hands on their ears. This event is officially recognized as an intangible cultural treasure.
