Yūzan Fujita (藤田 雄山, Fujita Yūzan, April 19, 1949 – December 18, 2015) was a Japanese politician and the governor of Hiroshima Prefecture from 1993 to 2009. A native of Minami-ku, Hiroshima and graduate of Keio University, he had served in the House of Councillors in the Diet of Japan since 1989 for one term before being elected governor.[1]

Governor of Hiroshima prefecture[edit]

As governor, he protested the US-Indian agreement on nuclear cooperation of September 2008.[2] In 2006, he opposed, along with other governors in Japan, the US plan to rearrange the deployment of US troops in Japan.[3] 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.[4]
