Office of Governor KAWAKATSU Heita

英語プロフィール

We have together worked to meet the unprecedented challenge of COVID-19, and I wish to thank our frontline health care workers and the people of Shizuoka for helping to slow the spread of the virus and keeping each other safe. Last year, while we successfully helped host the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games, a devastating mudslide disaster struck Atami City's Izusan district. Shizuoka Prefecture launched a new comprehensive plan at the start of the new fiscal year with the motto, "From Tokyo era to Shizuoka era," to enhance human well-being and create a wealthy and virtuous prefecture that leaves no one behind.

Our utmost priority is emergency and crisis management to protect the lives and livelihoods of our people. We must vigilantly prepare for disaster and swiftly respond, as well as control infectious diseases. We will work to become more resilient in the face of nature's fiercest fury, including earthquake, tsunami, typhoon, and torrential rain. The Atami disaster prompted us to thoroughly investigate and identify all potentially dangerous soil mound sites, and a Shizuoka ordinance on soil mound control, one of the toughest in Japan, was newly enacted. We will continue to expand our essential health services and systems during the COVID-19 pandemic, and next year, a specialized centre for infectious disease control to prepare for future outbreaks will be established. The centre, tentatively named as the Shizuoka Centre for Infectious Disease Control, will train specialists, collect and analyze data on infectious diseases, and lead the prefecture's response against all infectious diseases.

Regarding our prefectural economy, a locally-led economic initiative that started last year called Fujinomics, which aims to stimulate local production and consumption, will continue. Our short-term policy is to help the hardest hit industries of restaurant and tourism. We will make full use of various digital platforms to promote gastronomic tourism within the so-called "mountain state," a regional circle made up of the four prefectures of Yamanashi, Nagano, Niigata, and Shizuoka. Our mid-term policy is to build our health care industry into one of our leading industries that combines both aspects of "health" and "wealth." We will capitalize on our strengths: the production value of our pharmaceutical and medical device industry has been the highest in Japan for ten consecutive years, and our elderly population is one of longest living and active in the world. Our mid to long-term policy is to create regional circular and ecological spheres in our communities to accelerate decarbonization and meet the Sustainable Development Goals.

Regarding our policies on sports and culture, a sports-commission-organizing body was established within the prefectural government in January to build our legacy from the successes of Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic cycling competitions and Rugby World Cup 2019. Once the sports commission is fully launched, it will be working with our art council that was established last year to make Shizuoka the centre of sports, the arts, and culture.

Lastly, Shizuoka prefecture is blessed with the majestic Mount Fuji and picturesque nature. Mountain snow melts and supplies us with clear and fresh water.

 

The peak of Fuji
Passing through several years
Dove-white mountain snow
Emerges as a pure spring
In the Kakitagawa 

 

As this tanka reveals, the snow-capped Fuji mountain gifts us with a healthy and sustainable water cycle. Let us together reconsider the immeasurable blessings and ecosystem services that Mount Fuji and the Southern Alps provide us all. Let us make this year a year to think about the importance of water.
