Jin Murai, a former minister who won Sunday's gubernatorial election against incumbent Yasuo Tanaka, said he would remove a glass-walled office Tanaka had set up as a symbol of his reform programs.

Murai, 69, said, "I don't want to go into an office set up for show."Murai began visiting members of the Nagano Prefectural Assembly for talks after winning the election.During a press conference, Murai said he was now thinking about his responsibilities as governor-elect, rather than feeling elated about the win.

Commenting on the former governor's office, he said, "The office may be see-through, but Mr. Tanaka's decision-making processes were not."

Meanwhile, Gov. Tanaka, 50, held a meeting at the glass office on Monday morning to discuss disaster relief measures and schedules for the transferal of duties to Murai.
