The music video which local persons dance at the tourist sites, etc. in Tottori Prefecture with a popular idol group's "AKB48" hit song "Fortune Cookie for Love" has been completed. It is shown to the public on "YouTube" since November 27.

As it also intends promotion of "The National Disability Art and Cultural Festival" which will be held in the prefecture in 2014, persons with disabilities also appear dancing in the YouTube.

Because of being the first sign language ordinance enacted in Japan, Governor Hirai signed some words in a song.
