Mayor of NagatoKenichiro Haneda
Happy New Year to you all.
I wish to express my sincere gratitude for welcoming the new year of Heisei 31 year. Thank you for your understanding, cooperation and support for the promotion of town administration daily from the beginning.
Looking back on last year, it was a year that was hit by major disasters throughout the country. Weather is unstable throughout the year, cherry blossoms bloom in March in Nagato Town, and it was fleeting that the early spring's visit was surprising,rainy seasonTo sayrainy seasonIn addition to the arrival of "the summer of the heat with danger of life" recognized as one disaster, a typhoon reversely appeared, and the local heavy rain guerilla heavy rain frequently hit our city It was. Rainy season continues in the fall of fruit, harvesting, harvesting, yearly 11It was the 1 year that was touched by unpredictable natural phenomena such as no snowing falling in the moon, not easy progress of the seasons even if it became a teacher training.
For this reason, the volunteer road cleanup in the Nagato district of spring planned in the town and the townspeople's athletic meet in autumn were also canceled, but it was glad that there was no major disaster or human disaster Since the risk of natural disasters is extremely high, in 11 month, we concluded a disaster agreement with Ueda office of Chubu Electric Power Co., Ltd. and Social Welfare Corporation Yutakubo Welfare Association, and made close collaboration closely. With the townspeople, preparation for disasterLazinessI would like to lose it.
It was held in Korea in FebruaryPing ChangIn the Olympic Games, Yuka Fujimori from our town has played 4 consecutive tournaments and has won the 7th place in the event of big event a big event. Every time Yuka Fujimori participates in the Olympic Games in the town, he was introduced as "from Changwa-machi", praised the achievement for notifying the name of "Chowwa-cho" throughout the world in the world, and the second townspeople I gave an honorary chapter.
In May, the residents are also aware that 14 municipalities in 8 municipalities in Nagano Prefecture and 6 cities in Yamanashi prefecture, including Changwa Town, were certified as a Japanese heritage site as "the Jomon World of the Starfall Chubu Highlands" I believe that. It is said that Japan's oldest brand "Black Yellow Stone" of 30,000 years in Nagato Town was greatly evaluated and attracted. "Konobu Jomon culture dissemination and activation council", which is the center of the Japanese heritage related business, was established and the business will be full-fledged in the future. Even if it is a town, we will support the prefecture and promote our unique publicity activities. We will work as a big opportunity to connect the community development that utilizes the historical heritage that the town has been working for many years into the regional promotion.
Eight young high school students from Yosuwa Town Ambassador to Japan and Youngsters visited Setford, UK, from July to August, and the first time to be a town as well as a stone tool making workshop I have experienced.
10In the month the UK Teenage History Club visited Changwa Town and participated in the events "Stone Making Workshop" and "International Exchange Children's Summit" held as part of the autumn exhibition at the Nagano Prefectural Historical Museum Ambassador Youth Kaohsiung cooperated and instructed the making of stoneware. Each tie is further deepened, and in communicating the historic heritage to the future, by having meaning of cooperating across regions and countries and by working togetherEducationI wonder if I learned the importance of rare relationships of trust.
Nagatomachi is born and it will celebrate the 14 year.
The flow of the declining population of the town continues natural decline and society, and it is accelerating than expected. It is impossible for one municipality alone to deter population decline, but as a matter of Changwa Town we have to take as much measures as possible to alleviate that trend. We look forward to the future of Changwa Town, centering on the eight promises promised to the townspeople, we will judge the direction the town should go.
Nagatomachi continues to shine further as Changwa Town, taking over the smile of the townspeople to the future, we will further promote the creation of a living area where we can feel that "I am happy to live!" With the power of collaboration with the townspeople We sincerely hope for your support and cooperation of the townspeople.
This year I feel like a year with a big milestone marking a new era, like a year of significant historical significance.
I wish you a wonderful year for everyone this year, I wish you a happy new year's greetings.
Mayor of NagatoKenichiro Haneda
