Total smoking ban at Kobe City Government Offices

As of 31 May, World No Tobacco Day, Kobe Municipal Government implemented a total smoking ban in all spaces of the city’s main and ward offices. A fully smoke-free environment without any partitions, including in the City Hall restaurant and cafes, is now in effect. Indeed, local governments can play a role in promoting Smoke Free Cities, and contributing the enforcement of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control.
