Tokyoites go to the polls Sunday to elect a governor to replace Naoki Inose, who quit his post in December amid a political funding scandal. The main candidates are ex-health minister Yoichi Masuzoe, ex-Prime Minister Morihiro Hosokawa, lawyer Kenji Utsunomiya and former Self-Defense Forces chief Toshio Tamogami.
