When Kanagawa Gov. Shigefumi Matsuzawa formally announced Tuesday that he will run for Tokyo governor, he listed a raft of key policy objectives, many of which he advocated in his current office.

Matsuzawa said he will try to get a total ban on smoking in public places, limit governors to three terms and form an administrative alliance with Kanagawa, Chiba and Saitama prefectures.

Before becoming governor of Kanagawa, Matsuzawa, 52, was in the Lower House as a Democratic Party of Japan member, but he said he will run for Tokyo governor as an independent.
