Change in the Japanese Government

A historic change has occurred in Japan: the Liberal Democratic Party has fallen from power for the second time in the postwar period, and the Democratic Party (headed by Hatoyama) has stepped in to take the lead. Even if the Demoratic Party doesn’t make any big changes (personally, I’m skeptical), I look forward to a new prime minister (it’s about time Aso stepped down) and some new policy regarding the United States and China. If they can fix this awful pension system so I have some money when I get old, all the better!

For more details, check out Yomiuri’s article.

Regardless of what they are doing at the national level, I am happy to have Hashimoto as Osaka’s governor🙂
