In each elementary schools and junior high schools in Tendo, they serve 5 kinds of Italian meal as a memorial to visit Marostica, Rizotto soup, Cheese fried chicken, Olive salad, Soft French bread and Wine jelly. Cooks use Italy rice and follow both menus preliminary seasoning with herb, they bring those food close to taste of the home. Dietician thought about that menu after she went to a restaurant in Tendo and received many advices. Even if you say the supply of food with a simple word, every day dietician have to think many variety of food with fix balance of nourishment in a limited cost, furthermore, have to make characteristic menus. It is not an effort of averageness.

September 4 (Mon.) Only 30,000 people may turn a town to a CITY
(Highestthe highest 23.0C /Lowestthe lowest 19.2C /Rainweather - rain) [
Index and Temp.]
The Liberal Democratic Party decide a policy to relax a condition of population that a town and a village can become a CITY with a merger, and decide to submit a reform bill of special merger law at an extraordinary session of the Diet in the end of September. Even if a town and a village merge with each other, more than 40000 population need to become a CITY in a current law. However, the Liberal Democratic Party moderates this condition in order to promote merger, only 30,000 people can make a CITY.

A matter about population of a local government is fixed with the Local Government Act. So far it was the condition that there was that more than 50000 population became a city. And a revision of a special merger law revision established in 1998, the condition change to 40,000 people. The Liberal Democratic Party revises this special merger law that self-governing bodies can become a CITY by only 30,000 people.

Surely, we have an image that "city" is urban than "town". However, there are a lot of towns and villages which shine and show a personality than a city. I consider that a relaxation of this condition is just a "premium".
