The question point

1 theme
 Yokohama-shi concludes "inclusion cooperation agreement about regional activation" with National Research and Development Agency JAMSTEC (JAMSTEC)


Reporter:

We hope to ask the mayor and flat director a question by one. At first we ask the mayor, but there was remark to try that the local government concludes inclusion cooperation agreement with JAMSTEC for the first time, but as it is inclusion cooperation agreement, menu greatly divides, and, at this time, there are approximately four, but thinks that you can tell such a place that, by the way, you expect some other time particularly.

The mayor:

Yokohama-shi was opening of a port city, but, for these past several years, we added pressure as Ocean Hub very much, and we established sea meeting, and two years passed. JAMSTEC is rooted in this Yokohama-shi and, for me, has you wrestle, but wants to have you deepen knowledge, interest in sea of children, such a place through this. As it is place that is the most important as environmental city of the future and thinks that it may increase for education of children most, we want to add pressure.

Reporter:

We ask flat director. At the first of announcement document, it is written that we may apply earth simulator in industrial development, but we are lazy and are grateful, around 99% are said to be SME, such a super computer is such an SME SME in the city, but wants to ask about what kind of example there is if we can utilize with question whether is thing which we can utilize.

JAMSTEC's director Asahiko Taira:

Earth simulator is super computer which is outstanding in the world. There are some patterns (as method that company uses) and company pays money in use of payment and uses as calculator and calculates by oneself. The result is performed confidentiality of, and please inflect as result of company. We offer service for thing called various how to use at stage to spend (in simulator). Not using without permission, we perform various support about how to use, but it is thing called use of payment. The other gives result while using by combination including collaborative investigation of various forms. For us, we talk about whether you do for thing sharing it with us as intellectual property in companies and a certain by contract what kind of distribution. If greatly say, there are two, and, as characteristic, as for both, we are various about how to use earth simulator; serve; so-called; advise (here), but is different from company merely performing somewhere if normal, and buying machine (use time). About the part, we think that we can offer service in form that it is easy to use more. A significant number of companies actually use in such a form; and mainly our earth simulator about fluid, for example, is with wind, or is particularly strong for (simulation) including flows of water or groundwater. It inflects in such a field and is inflected again in field called inflection of materials.

Reporter:

We ask flat director. There is when we hold, after all Tokyo is attractive, the sea is near, and, as main approach content based on agreement, would you tell marine convention this time in next January it has been done so far in Tokyo if, for example, there is such effect point that there is that can expect, or does not come by wrestling in Yokohama where mechanism of is near?

Flat director:

It is symposium called "blue ground" every year to go, but has know various results of research that we started using ship so far. It is convention that we speak, and several hundred people participate in, but, for community of researcher companion or the person concerned, thinks that, in fact, there may be the material various in that. When there may be various results of research that various new technical information including technique to go into the deep sea notices at level that possibly we do not notice for company (we think). When it is a shame that we keep this only to researcher companion and makes open more and does not say until opening innovation, but, which we announced in various ways at place that we made open, result may be utilized more (we think). When Yokohama is largest accumulation place in Japan about marine industry in place where we asked including what we checked or the mayor from various places of city (to say). Our result reaches more widely by holding interest in citizen's sea at the same time in Yokohama that it is high and changes character into place from simple arts and sciences announcement a little to utilize widely that we want to do and wants to do our result in convention in dynamic form that it is said so including various technique discussion that we bring in way of various display to tell more widely, poster session or real observation equipment.

Reporter:

It is confirmation, for example, it is product for companies, or is knowledge like us image that it is in place that we can enjoy even if citizen's that there is not widely while thing for researchers continues as having just said?

Flat director:

We right think for such an image.

2 and others


Reporter:

Press conference of Yokohama Port luck association which managed warehouse of Yamashita-Futo today was held, and we said design, or, about redevelopment of Yamashita-Futo, plan was shown. The contents leave out small place, we show plan to maintain basically all most of 47 hectares as MICE facility, and situation called objection is spoken about introduction of IR basically, design is started, and of city pushes forward that we want to ask the mayor about revitalization of Yamashita-Futo, about pushing forward MICE facility as most of in that, this feels like whether there is a difference with policy of city a little, would you tell thought of the mayor in this connection?

The mayor:

It hears about me that there was press conference, but has not yet seen about contents. Association of port luck develops business for a long time in Yokohama Port and thinks that it is right one of the economic world which made the history of Yokohama. There is thought about the future of future Yamashita-Futo very much, and think that would be performed at press conference in this sense; and of one when will think, take.

Reporter:

It is MICE facility, in redevelopment of Yamashita-Futo, how does the mayor think about taking in as one factor?

The mayor:

We do not yet know what kind of form it is, but think that there may be as factor. We do not see contents of suggestion, but, in harbor resort development, think that there may be as factor. But it is not sure that it is like that to be concrete.

Reporter:

There will be state that readily declines acceptance that to be related, and there is maintenance of 20 blocks about so-called MICE facility and has you say to the mayor before now when pashifiko occupied core role and thinks whether there was process that maintains 20 blocks that we lack. Can we have opinion whether you think by recognition to be yet still less enough in redevelopment of Yamashita-Futo in that whether after all, besides, MICE facility is recognition to be necessary if accumulation of so-called Minato Mirai district around pashifiko is necessary as the present conditions as the point has not called too much?

The mayor:

We do not think specifically now as we think that we can meet enough for (if completed) present inquiry and offer that we make adjacent to Pacifico-yokohama. But we think that it will be natural that there is such a suggestion as we just had you ask about being such a suggestion. Among us, we do not only plan to strongly put mainly on it. It is only feeling to have to let you jump more to meet well as there is hotel if place adjacent (Pacifico-yokohama) is completed well (in various hope).

Reporter:

It may be thought of amateur, but large-scale concern to have possibilities to bat when we can provide equipment new again is thought about very much while accumulation of MICE facility advances in Minato Mirai district as having just said. We still criticize, and, not giving voice, such a thing is thought about, how about in this connection?

The mayor:

It is not stage to think about such a thing now. We do not see contents, but only (interview) think whether it is a matter of course that various suggests now.

Reporter:

It is different theme, bid did not readily advance about redevelopment of Yokohama Culture Gymnasium so far on today, we think that it is base where it is, would you tell one dynamo point what kind of role expects for this base for activation out of Seki some other time definitely along with the city hall Kannai it was decided on today?

The mayor:

We had splendid suggestion this time. We want to push forward business for realization in future to be able to meet expectation of citizen's all of you with company. And we think that we had suggestion appropriate for there as it is right positioning as leading project (town development of around Kannai Station district) about this Yokohama Culture Gymnasium, arena subarena. About it and subarena, we are that we push forward to open after Tokyo 2020 cage Para meeting was over, and main arena is service in 2024, too. Therefore as move of city hall is 2020, we want to receive suggestion of private land that it is various about problem now after here, and this pushes forward aggressive activity, too. As we feel like having possibilities to begin to work remarkably, I am glad, too.

Reporter:

That, for example, it is DeNA having team of professional baseball or is that Yokohama Arena is to enter as cooperation developer that we have such arena function this time when it is sport before now, but experience of such existing facility operation is kept alive (or it will be thing).

The mayor:

Of course it is such a thing.

Reporter:

Story returns a little, in story of revitalization of Yamashita fu Wharf of a while ago, Yokohama Port luck association was core facility nitoiugo suggestion in MICE, IR, casino are considerably strong in thought to be unnecessary some other time and, including chairperson, say and think that we give off to repeat, want you just to tell thought for casino at the present once again.

The mayor:

(as for the thought) We do not change at all and after all are clean slate for me. Some conduct bills of casino are out of schedule (behind), and this does not yet know even today's latest news without big picture being seen clearly either. We saw that we work on some gamble dependency well by some news, but after all, in such inside, are really the situation to follow, and to want to think about how really about with City Counsil and citizen's for Yokohama-shi, Yokohama citizens together for the future for me.

Reporter:

Is story of Yamashita-Futo, but think that is proposed about making harbor resort there well as city, but about time in 2020 service and one (please tell) whether give off, but thought to want to make such a thing for Olympics in total as Yokohama is what, or have.

The mayor:

We continue talking about move of warehouse carefully and are in condition not to be able to yet start a feeling of schedule to there now. We think whether you are slightly being late a little, but think that it may be difficult until the Tokyo Olympics Paralympics.

Reporter:

As for it, few concerning warehouse move (or it will be to be difficult).

The mayor:

There is it, too. However, (as for the move of some service area contract relations) it is almost completed, but is sorry not to be able to answer clearly here. Is there anything from the secretariat?

The secretariat:

We push forward discussion transferring warehouse to about service (partly) of 2020, but think that it is necessary to consider based on the situation of move with rightful claimants as present status now. We are based on progress of discussion and think that we want to cope. 

Reporter:

It is that interview of association of Yokohama Port luck has a series of, in interview, there was expression not to intend to accept warehouse move if we do not advocate against casino definitely, may we ask about how you go after neighborhood now as it is in opportunity when Olympics are important and thinks that there was plan that it is just in 2020?

The mayor:

Do not keep contents under control now either, it looks like it; would have to talk? We think whether it is to continue talking still more (it becomes).

Reporter:

It is something else, but, about meeting place costs of Tokyo Olympics out of the capital, we think that Yokohama-shi is with concerning in competition holding city the local government agreed with profit of public lottery, but please tell last week if and it may be concerned about thought of the mayor at present.

The mayor:

When if this suggestion is accepted in national self-government public lottery office work meeting planned in October, in addition, 22,400 million yen is added, and support of Tokyo meeting of public lottery of 34 billion yen in total is fixed at determined 11,600 million yen (to say). As aim of bailout was in sight in this, Yokohama-shi wants to accelerate preparations still more as city holding two competitions. It is the amount of distribution of Yokohama-shi, but will hear that it is decided in future as the amount of this support is estimate of Tokyo. Yokohama-shi expresses afterward from past, but, in expense in transportation and security, meeting Organizing Committee is version 2 the whole budget for Olympics in December of this year, but it may be said that Tokyo and organizing committee adjust this. At present, burden has not been yet settled. Therefore we continue coordinating with Tokyo and organizing committee sequentially in cooperation with the local government concerned.

Reporter:

It is former story, but jet of the U.S. forces crashes, and, on this month 27, mother and three children invite just 40 anniversaries to Midori Ward at the time from accident passed away in 1977. It may be lacking in coverage, but there does not seem to be plan to do, but please tell anything event for city for the moment as it is what as the mayor, or or there is place to feel from now on for a little less than two weeks if there is thought including what you must do.

The mayor:

We remember accident of 1977 well. I live in near place, and there is still home. As it is place called Daiba-cho, Eda is near. There is still memory that it burst into flames on big village forest, forest. Concerning end of fight against illness that is very long in really pitiful thing, it is very pitiful. About thing called accident that there must be never, we feel that heart aches heartily and want to pray soul may rest in peace some other time. We think that it is event that we cannot forget for Yokohama citizens. I will check later (if there is any report means kimono) and want to inform of some events.
