Many of the allegations leveled by the National Assn. Amaradio, 41, a former Equitable agent in Michigan and Southern California.
Tokyo's Chiyoda (千代田) Ward is the center of the city and in many ways the center of all Japan.
A mere 12 km² houses the Imperial Palace, the Diet, the ministries of Kasumigaseki, the corporate headquarters of Marunouchi, the controversial Yasukuni Shrine...
Tokyo Station (東京駅 Tōkyō-eki), the hub for all Shinkansen trains, lies to the east side of Chiyoda.
Note that the Shinkansen exits are on the Yaesu side in Chuo Ward; to get to the Marunouchi side in Chiyoda Ward, you want to cross over to the west exit.
The west side of the station is something of a sight in itself as it reflects the station's original World War I-era architecture.
A benefit of the development is that it has spurred the placement of many interpretive panels along the hoarding, detailing the history, architectural detailing, and future of the station building.
The JR Yamanote line (light green) passes through Tokyo Station in a loop around the center of the city, and the JR Chuo line (orange) and Sobu line (yellow) bisect the loop horizontally.
Yurakucho, Akihabara, Kanda (on the Yamanote) and Ochanomizu, Yotsuya (on the Chuo) are among the train stations located within the ward.
Narita Express trains from Narita Airport stop at Tokyo (¥2940, 53 min.) on the Sobu platforms. These include the Marunouchi Line (red) (to Shinjuku), the Hanzomon Line (purple) (to Shibuya), the Hibiya Line (gray) (to Roppongi), the Tozai Line (blue) (to Nakano), and the Chiyoda Line (green) (to Harajuku).
The nearby Toei Asakusa Line (pink) stops slightly to the east at Kyobashi and Nihonbashi, on which Keikyu Line trains run through to Haneda Airport (¥650, about 35 minutes).
Securities regulators are investigating whether an Orange County insurance agent--hired by Prudential Insurance despite a lengthy record of customer complaints, lawsuits and disciplinary investigations--may have continued to use deceitful sales tactics since joining the company, public records show. Amaradio, 41, was hired by Prudential in 1991 after he left the Equitable Assurance Society under a cloud.
Michigan regulators have moved to revoke the license of a leading Prudential Insurance salesman who divides his time between Newport Beach and Michigan and who was hired by Prudential despite a track record of problems in a prior job.
The action comes just days after Prudential Insurance Chairman Robert Winters publicly defended the decision to hire Anthony J.
