The choice of the ward name
In deference to majority of the application ward name from citizen, it was decided by discussion of ward name screening committee to constitute in the mayor, the deputy mayor, station Director General concerned.
About the ward name, did group application by inhabitants of designated area at first and concentrated on "Tsurugamine", but group application to object to that from other districts was provided as "west Hodogaya" "port west". Three high ranks produce phenomenon of local rivalry in this way, and "peak" of "Tsurugamine" is hard to further standardize character and might cause confusion for various registration.
In addition, the "west Hodogaya" "port west" has misleadingness with Nishi Ward, Hodogaya Ward, Kohoku Ward.
In this way, "Fujimi" "Asahi" "green" became candidate, but there was the least number of the number of strokes and was decided in "Asahi Ward" among these as style was clear briefly.
