Really good reading! It's great that the Shizuoka prefecture has taken action to promote cycling safety, but it will take a lifetime for the government to accomplish half as much.

Doesn't "Shizuoko prefecture" = the government?
Yes, Shizuoka prefecture is a part of the Nation's government. My point is that the National Diet will be slow to produce any policy that would influence the reamining 46 prefectures to develop the infrastructure and cycling safety laws as in Shizuoka.
