June 5th 2018

In response to the opinion of the disability organization “Aichi Disability Forum” who protested the policy of Nagoya city not to install an elevator in wooden restoration of the castle tower of Nagoya castle and asked not to permit the city’s restoration project to continue, the Mayor Takeshi Kawamura said:

“Since I have not yet received concrete consultation (such as application from the city), I will refrain from replying as to whether or not”. On the other hand, I think that it is important that both incomes and safety improvements (such that concern. the elderly and disabled) and maintenance that preserves values ​​such as historical sites are balanced as much as possible, “
