TOKYO CREATES NEW LOGO, SLOGAN
TO PROMOTE CITY OVERSEAS
AS PRIME TOURIST DESTINATION

 Japan Today, May 8, 2017

TOKYO — The Tokyo metropolitan government has created a new logo and slogan, “Tokyo Tokyo Old meets New” (the first Tokyo depicted in a brushstroke font and the second in a Gothic block typeface), to effectively convey the attractions of Tokyo overseas. This logo will be used in various promotional activities abroad.

According to the Bureau of Industrial and Labor Affairs, the design presents “Tokyo” in two different fonts in order to intuitively impart an image of the city. The brushstroke of Tokyo and Gothic block typeface of Tokyo represent the originality of the city, where traditions dating back to the Edo period (1603-1867) coexist alongside the cutting-edge culture of today.

The tradition is expressed in black ink, while the new Tokyo is expressed in blue, like the sky spreading forward to express the innovative future. To give some playfulness, the logo also includes a traditional stamp that shows one of Tokyo’s newest sightseeing landmarks, the Shibuya scramble crossing.

WALIKOTA NAGOYA, TERPILIH KEMBALI

PILKADA WALIKOTA NAGOYA, MINGGU, 23 APRIL, 2017 
[ NAGOYA MAYORAL ELECTION 2017, SUNDAY, APRIL 23 ]

Tiga calon ikut bertarung: Takashi Kawamura (68 / petahana), Masateru Iwaki (62 / mantan wakil walikota dan pengacara), dan Toshimitsu Ota (68 / mantan eksekutif perusahaan). Tak terdengar gaduh kampanye, sementara walikota petahana terlihat hari Minggu lalu bersepeda menyapa para pejalan kaki di pusat kota. Sebagai warga pendatang yang sudah 17 tahun menjadi warga kota Nagoya dan sudah selama 3 tahun terakhir memegang kartu khusus warga lansia yang diterbitkan oleh kantor walikota sehingga bisa naik bus dan subway gratis,  dan gratis pula memasuki sejumlah situs wisata yang penting, tentu saja dari lubuk hati terdalam saya mengharapkan hasil yang terbaik dari pilkada ini.
Dan hasilnya adalah sebagai berikut …

TAX CUT ADVOCATE KAWAMURA
WINS FOURTH TERM
AS NAGOYA MAYOR

Kyodo / The Japan Times, April 24, 2017

Nagoya Mayor Takashi Kawamura was re-elected for the fourth time in Sunday’s mayoral election, with many citizens backing his tax cut policies.

Kawamura, 68, who leads a local political party called Tax Cut Japan, ran against two other candidates — Masateru Iwaki, a 62-year-old former deputy mayor and lawyer backed by the Social Democratic Party, and Toshimitsu Ota, a 68-year-old former company employee.

Kawamura, a former House of Representatives member, became Nagoya’s mayor in 2009 but resigned in January 2011 in the midst of a confrontation with the municipal assembly over his tax cut plan. He ran again and was re-elected mayor the following month.

He conducted a one-year municipal tax cut affecting companies and individuals in fiscal 2010 and pushed through a 5 percent cut starting from fiscal 2012.

Voter turnout was 36.90 percent, 2.45 percentage points below the previous election in 2013.

‘SELAMAT HARI RAYA PASKAH’ – “Akulah Kebangkitan dan Kehidupan” (Yoh. 11:25)

“We were indeed buried with Him through baptism into death, so that, 
just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, 
we too might live in newness of life.” (Romans 6: 3-4)

Dear Fellow Christians, 
In this season of new beginnings, new hopes and new joys, 
wishing you every happiness, prosperity 
and meaningful life.

rsz_paskah20172

Para Kerabat dan Sahabat Sekalian,
Semoga iman akan Kristus yang menderita, wafat dan bangkit
akan meneguhkan dan menyanggupkan kita untuk 
 senantiasa bangkit dari kelumpuhan dan keterkungkungan
rohani dan batin yang sering kita alami dalam hidup kita,
untuk membangun hidup baru yang lebih bermakna 
bagi diri kita sendiri dan bagi sesama.

“SELAMAT HARI RAYA PASKAH”
Salam Kebangkitan, Salam Hidup Baru
