As governor, he protested the US-Indian agreement on nuclear cooperation of September 2008. In 2006, he opposed, along with other governors in Japan, the US plan to rearrange the deployment of US troops in Japan. On July 16, 2009, he reversed the policy of Hiroshima prefecture regarding compensations to hibakusha living outside Japan as he announced that he would not appeal a July 2008 ruling of the District Court of Hiroshima regarding such compensations to a hibakusha who had emigrated to Brazil.
