As reported in the March 2004 issue of the Alien Times the immigration bureau of the Justice Ministry has recently added a feature that allows people to report suspected illegal aliens in one's neighbourhood for reasons such as "causing anxiety" or "causing nuisance to the neighbourhood". On Wednesday the 14th of April the governor of Hyogo prefecture submitted a petition to the central government against the website. Hyogo prefecture is the first local government to do so in Japan. The petition was sent following a regular meeting between the local government and representative of foreigners established in Hyogo prefecture.
