Creation[edit]

The classification was created by the first clause of Article 252, Section 19 of the Local Autonomy Law of Japan.

Was this part of the original text of the Local Autonomy Law, or was it part of a later amendment? If the later, when was it? Nik42 06:44, 1 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Article title[edit]

Why isn't this moved to Designated city or some more manageable title (like that for Core city)? Also, I don't see that it is necessary to have "(Japan)" in the title. --RJCraig 14:07, 14 January 2007 (UTC)

Other possible designations[edit]

Besides Sagamihara(which I added per NLWP and JAWP),some sources(non-English Wikipedias included) suggest that Kumamoto could be designated somewhere down the road as well... Ranma9617 04:43, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

City designated by government ordinance (Japan)City designated by government ordinance — I propose deleting the "disambiguation" article at City designated by government ordinance and moving the City designated by government ordinance (Japan) article back to City designated by government ordinance. City designated by government ordinance (Japan) is really the only non-disambig article on Wikipedia related to this term. From what I can tell, the term "City designated by government ordinance" is a specific translation of the term "政令指定都市" used by the Japanese government only, and there is no other notable usage of this term outside of this context, if any. —Tokek 05:50, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
