Got a Few Extra Bucks? Name a City After Yourself
For $12 million over 10 years, and a commitment "to building some type of connection with the city," a Japanese town traditionally known for its towel-making industry, could be known for you.

What they have been able to attract, according to AFP, are complaints from "some of the city's 103,000 residents annoyed with the plan."
