I keenly thought that the place where man from a different field debates about policy across boundaries was required, working for 36 years in the TOKYO Metropolitan Government. There is a place that says a system in Japan present. Moreover, there are many people who say one system and one method. However, there is no place that discusses synthetically, for example about concrete topics, such as development in front of a station, activation of a commercial center, fullness of community well-being, and management of environment. At the big school in central Tokyo, a head, a legislator, staff, a businessman and a scholar and a student cross the region, and questions exceed a professional description, and hope to form the place for the gathering of ambitious men who are useful for the development of the creation of a policy. It is a great school which can obtain intellectual stimulus, by directing [rather than separating from] hard work.
