Footnote removed[edit]

Removed the following:

The Japanese name for this ministry literally translates to "Province of National Land and Transportation". The term "province" is the Japanese equivalent of a Cabinet-level Department in western countries, and is not used as a term for subnational entities.

While 省 is used to refer to Chinese provinces, it is only used in Japanese to refer to ministries, so this note is misleading (and rather silly). - Sekicho 04:47, 5 August 2006 (UTC)

Partial revision of the Ministry's name[edit]

With the establishment of the Japan Tourism Agency, the official name of MLIT in English has been revised into Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism since October 1, 2008. Thus it would be advisable to change the article name. --Doraemonplus (talk) 09:06, 4 October 2008 (UTC)
