the 'grass‐roots movement' started from a civil level?
Dr. Junhaku Miyamoto: Most of the countries which have enforced a smoke-free law came from a 'top-down decision' ,
since a health ministry in that country well knows and aware of the health hazard from the tobacco.
However, if a small city in Japan enacted a total smoking ban in a restaurant and enlarged the restricting area;
then, there still be a hope to stop the tobacco-dependent Japanese society.

providing for the protection of citizens from exposure to tobacco smoke in workplaces, public transport, and other public venues.

which Japan Society for Tobacco Control eagerly supported.

in a restaurant in a small community, expanding its area to wider districts and state. After that, smoking bar, pub and club
can be banned. Smoking ban in a hotel room may be followed. Finally, outside smoking restriction may be enforced.
(R) Tokyo, Japan is selected as the 2020 summer Olympic site. It is mandatory to establish anti-smoking law, which
enforces a total smoking ban in a restaurant, by the year of 2020.
