Japanese Walk of Fame Wins Approval

Sixty-thousand dollars for a Japanese version of the Hollywood Walk of Fame was approved Wednesday by the Los Angeles Harbor Department's Board of Commissioners as a gift to Nagoya, Japan, the sister city of Los Angeles.

The money will be used to buy 25 prefabricated stars to be placed in Los Angeles Square in Nagoya. The gift is intended to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Nagoya's sister-city relationship with Los Angeles and also to mark Nagoya's centennial.

Celebrities to be honored will be chosen from among those who already have stars on the Hollywood walk.
