More Schools Outlaw Smoking

In momentum toward a smoke-free environment at prefecture-run schools, 18 of Japan's 47 prefectures have either already banned or decided to ban smoking on school premises, according to statistics compiled by Kyodo News and released Sunday. With the enforcement in May last year of a health law that makes it obligatory to take measures to prevent secondhand smoke, there are increasing moves to completely ban smoking on school premises, and not simply create separate smoking and nonsmoking areas or impose a smoking ban only within school buildings.
