Message: "Tokyo must aim to be smart in terms of our environment and smart in terms of our economy. Technological advancement will play a paramount role in both regards. Tokyo must utilize the state of art technology in urban planning, energy policy, and economic reform, and Tokyo will aim for both environmental sustainability and economic sustainability. Leveraging the latest technology we need to back this up with the real policy and real budget. Implementation and support for eco-housing, small housing, and utlilization of renewable energy will be important policy considerations environmentally. I have also been a strong advocate for the undergrounding of the overhead cables such as telecommunication and power lines.This is not only meaningful for the resilience for the city, but is also important to regain aesthetics. For me, this is an important part of helping to make Tokyo look smart." Mayor of Tokyo,Yuriko Koike
