Trial Bag Inspections at Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government (TMG) has decided to conduct a trial of bag inspections for those entering office floors to help increase the security of TMG Buildings.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause users of TMG Buildings, and would appreciate your understanding and cooperation.

1. Trial period

Monday, June 29 through Friday, July 31, 2015

2. Locations

In front of each elevator on the first and second floors of the Tokyo Metropolitan Main Building No. 1
Accessways of the Tokyo Metropolitan Main Building No. 1 and No. 2 (third floor)
Entrances of the first and second floors of the Tokyo Metropolitan Assembly Building

3. Methods

Visual bag inspection and inspection of personal belongings using a metal detector

In addition to bag inspections, which are currently being conducted, personal belongings will be inspected using a metal detector at the TMG Building Observatories.

We will strengthen fixed-point security at important locations as well as patrols and security on each floor of TMG Buildings to ensure early identification of suspicious individuals or objects and a rapid response.
