OSAKA (Kyodo) Kyocera Corp., which has bought the right to rename the Osaka Dome for five years starting in April, has decided to retain the word “Osaka” in the dome’s name in response to requests from local residents, company officials said Friday.

“We think our first priority is to contribute to the local community, and (we) value relations with local people. Thus we have decided to meet their requests,” a company spokesman said.
