4 major Japanese corporations are evacuating to Osaka


On the regular press conference of Tokyo mayor on 2/24/2012, it turned out that 4 major Japanese corporations are moving the head offices from Tokyo to Osaka.
The companies are

Mitsubishi Corporation
The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, Ltd
Sumitomo Mitsui banking corporation

The journalist asked,
The city income of Tokyo has been decreasing for these 5 years.
Yesterday, the Mitsubishi Corporation, Mitsui&CO.,LTD, The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, Ltd, Sumitomo Mitsui banking corporation and Panasonic (← Note : This is wrong. The head office of Panasonic is in Osaka from the beginning.) published they are going to move their head offices from Tokyo to Osaka.
It’s likely to damage the income more. What is your opinion ?

Ishihara Tokyo mayor,
Yes, that’s a problem, but it would be better for the entire economy of Japan.

About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
