Kyushu Headline News English language summaries of last month's top Kyushu area news stories. 九州エリアの 1 ヵ月分の英文ニュースの中から選り抜きの話題をピックアップ 九大と東西大共同研究 Kyushu University, Joint Research with Busan The Kansei Value Creation Department of Kyushu University's User Science Institute announced that it will conduct joint research with Dongseo University of Busan, South Korea, into improving the design of four transportation hubs in both countries to create more aesthetically pleasing, attractive, and user-friendly facilities. One will be the international terminal at the Port of Hakata. The researchers also hope to employ new survey methods to uncover the potential needs of the facilities. 韓国大統領、九州との経済圏促進 Korean President to Promote Kyushu During an interview conducted in Seoul with Nishinippon President Takao Kawasaki and other media representatives, South Korean President Lee Myung-bak said his government would begin discussions in the second half of this year concerning the creation of a super-regional economic zone that would include the southeastern part of the Korean Peninsula and Kyushu. The creation of such a zone was one of President Lee's campaign promises in the presidential election earlier this year, but this is the first time he has referred to the issue since taking office. Companies and local governments in Kyushu and the Busan area of South Korea have been rapidly building ties, but this is the first time the South Korean government will become officially involved. キャノン長崎に新工場 Canon to Build Plant in Nagasaki Canon has announced plans to build a digital camera plant in Hasami-cho, Nagasaki Prefecture. The company anticipates that the plant, which will be its third digital camera plant nationwide, will begin operation by the end of 2009. It will invest roughly 15 billion yen in the construction. The plant is expected to employ about 100 people. 裁判の迅速審理、前倒し進む Courts to Accelerate Pace of Trials Criminal courts throughout Kyushu are examining ways to accelerate the pace of trials in advance of the introduction of the lay judge system in May 2009. The objective is to reduce the trial's impact on the regular employment of the lay judges. They also hope to lessen the psychological burden on them as well. This is particularly important for Kyushu, which has many outlying islands and remote residential areas, forcing people to come from greater distances for trials.

福岡の日本一、世界一教えて Solicitations Open for Fukuoka Firsts The Fukuoka Convention & Visitors Bureau is asking for solicitations to add to its list of Fukuoka history and sites that are either the first in Japan or the first in the world. The area is already well known for being the origin of udon in Japan and having the country's largest Ferris wheel, but the bureau is looking for "hidden number ones" that aren't as widely known. They hope to use these facts to promote tourism to the area. The solicitation will be open until October 31. 熊本城祭りの経済効果は 145 億円 Kumamoto Castle Festival Nets 14.5 Billion Yen The festival commemorating the 400th anniversary of the construction of the Kumamoto Castle, held from December 31, 2006, to May this year generated an economic benefit estimated at more than 14.5 billion yen. It also attracted more than 1.7 million visitors, of whom an estimated one-third came from outside the prefecture. On April 20 this year, the restored castle keep was opened to the public. Kumamoto City spend roughly 5.4 billion yen on the restoration work. 九大、ビジネス・スクール、大連で一般入試 Kyushu Uni. to Hold Entrance Exams in China Kyushu University's graduate school of business announced that beginning next year it will conduct its entrance exams in Dalian, China. The declining child population in Japan means that most Japanese students who want to go to college will be admitted, and more Japanese universities are competing for bright students overseas, particularly in China. The university's business school conducts a two-year course leading to a master's degree, and most of its students are already employed after having obtained a bachelor's degree. 九州各県の位置、小 6 半数が誤答 Sixth Graders Can't Place Kyushu The National Institute for Educational Policy Research conducted a survey of Japanese sixth graders which revealed that with the exception of Kagoshima Prefecture, more than half of the students were unable to properly place the Kyushu prefectures on a map. The two prefectures often mistaken were Fukuoka and Miyazaki Prefectures. Their location was improperly identified by only 41.8% and 40.1% of the students respectively. The Institute thinks Kyushu might present problems for the students because they tend to memorize prefectural locations in order starting from the north and working south.
