TV Interpreter System

You can use a TV interpreting system available at the City Office service counter. After you select a language via the tablet, you will be connected with an interpreter via videophone who will handle the interaction.
If you need an interpreter when handling procedures and receiving advice at the City Office, please feel free to ask the staff for assistance.
