Hiroshima Prefecture
(広島県)

Foreigners of many different nationalities, including not only North and South Koreans but also Chinese, Brazilians, and Filipinos live and work in Hiroshima Prefecture.

Hiroshima Prefecture seeks to create a harmonious “Multi-cultural society” in which the human rights, culture and values of all those foreigners from various countries and ethnic background living in the prefecture are fully respected, and in which their individuality and abilities can be used to their full potential in living a dynamic and active life. The prefecture actively promotes the creation and maintenance of a living environment in which it easy for foreigners to live and one in which they are able to participate in their local communities

In order to create a livable regional community for both foreigners residing in the prefecture as well as the Japanese residents, it is becoming increasingly important to strive for an “Internationalization in Everyday Life” that not only fosters understanding of the  circumstance and historical reasons for foreigners living in Hiroshima Prefecture, and deepens understanding of different cultures, customs and values, but also contributes to solving problems faced by these foreigners in areas such as employment, housing and education.

To aid in such efforts, this “Guide to Living in Hiroshima” was first created in 1995, revised in 1998 and made available on the Internet homepage. We shall continue working to take similar measures such as improving and enhancing the provision of public affairs/enlightenment and daily living information for foreigners residing in the prefecture, and the establishment of a daily living information window.

 広島県内には,在日韓国・朝鮮人をはじめとし,中国,ブラジル,フィリピンなど多くの外国籍の人たちが暮らしています。
 このため,広島県では,さまざまな国籍や民族の人々の人権や文化,生活習慣,価値観が尊重され,外国籍県民一人ひとりが個性や能力を発揮しながらいきいきと活躍できる「多文化共生社会」を目指し,外国籍県民が暮らしやすい生活環境の整備や地域社会へ参加できる環境の整備を進めています。
 外国籍県民の人たちが,同じ県民として,ともに生きる地域社会を築くには,広島県に居住することになったその事情や歴史的経緯を知り,異なる文化,生活習慣,価値観などへの理解を深め,就職,住宅,教育など,外国籍県民を取り巻く課題の解決に向けた「暮らしのなかの国際化」への取り組みがますます重要となっています。
 その取り組みの一環として,1995年(平成7年)に「暮らしの手引き広島」を作成し,1998年(平成10年)に次いで今回改訂し,インターネットホームページとして提供することとしました。今後とも,広報・啓発活動の充実や外国籍県民への生活情報の提供,生活相談の実施などに努めてまいります。
