Los Angeles city auditors have been engaged in a "running battle" with the port's Tokyo-based trade promoter, whose outlays for salary, entertainment, private clubs and other expenses have risen to more than $450,000 a year. A new port contract approved earlier this year for Shuji Nomura, a full-time Japanese agent, is up nearly one-third from two years ago, and Nomura's salary, the equivalent of $127,000 a year, is among the highest in city government, records and interviews show.

Mention the fact that Shuji Nomura is one of the highest-paid employees of the city of Los Angeles, and he responds with exasperation. "Yeah. So I hear." Nomura is paid just over $100,000 a year as the Japanese representative of the Port of Los Angeles. Another $159,000 is allocated each year to cover the rent for his office in Tokyo and to pay for some expense account lunches and business meetings. A gregarious cheerleader for the port, Nomura, 58, apparently embraces his job with enthusiasm.
