Tokyo Gubernatorial Election 2016
This year's gubernatorial election is premature, called when Tokyo Governor Yoichi Masuzoe resigned over a money scandal (what else). it is set for Sunday, July 31, 2016. Elections in Japan are always held on a Sunday.
There are 22 candidates in this month's election. Not all candidates put posters up on all billboards. My neighbourhood's campaign billboard features only eight posters. So the more I move around the city the greater are my chances of seeing more posters - especially in high-traffic areas like commuter hubs such as the neighbourhood around Shinjuku Station.
