Prime Minister Hatoyama visited Shiga

Prime Minister Hatoyama made a first visitation to Shiga on April 3. The Japan's top official visited three places - a kindergarten, Kyocera's solar cell factory, and Lake Biwa museum. Those places were selected because they exemplify impending issues such as global warming and the unification of kindergarten and nursery schools. The Democratic Party of Japan (DPJ), led by Hatoyama, consider those issues to be the most important agendas.

When the prime minister visited Himawari kindergarten in Omihachiman, a unique facility into which a kindergarten and a nursery school were integrated, he shook hands with guardians and children, speaking well of those kids.

At Lake Biwa Museum he experienced an exhibition that allowed visitors to touch carp fish as well as being briefed about the prefecture's plan to reduce CO2 by 50% until 2030. Hatoyama then visited Kyocera's factory to see how the production process of solar cell panels proceeded.

"Shiga is a trailblazer doing the things that Japan will have to do," says the prime minister after finishing his schedule.
