(L) The 2004 Guide Book to the nonsmoking restaurant and cafe in Tokyo
by Junhaku Miyamoto, M.D.
(R) The Lonely Wolf Country
A new book entitled [ The Lonely Wolf Country ] disclosed the memoir of history of inadequate Japanese
smoke-freelaws. The smoking-restriction ordinance first came into operation
in Kanagawa Prefecture,
west of Tokyo, in April 2010. A 70% small-scale restaurant, cafe and bar
were excluded from this law.
For the rest of 30% relatively large-scale firms, it was requested to select the all non-smoking or with
a separate smoking room in their hospitality facilities. This first ordinance
to control smoking caused
a significant adverse effect to the policy of the central government. It
abandoned completely the total
smoking ban in an indoor public space. Instead, it newly enacted an official financial aid to create a
smoking room inside of building. The subsidy rate was 25% of construction
cost of smoking room. In May
2013, the government increased the rate to 50%, to assist to build a smoking room in restaurants and
bars as well. This is completely different government policy against many
other advanced countries, in
which a total smoking ban is enforced in the hospitality firms. This book
was written on the history of
smoking control, how and what it happened in the Japanese society.
