Little Feet in a Big Mouth

Toru Hashimoto may now have even surpassed the many and varied faux pas of Shintaro Ishihara but unfortunately I don’t yet have a photo of the Osaka Governor.

You’ll just have to make do with this image of another right wing nut job, the current Tokyo governor, Naoki Inose, who may recently have lost Tokyo its Olympic bid. He also lives in my town and can sometimes be seen jogging around on his tiny little feet.




More images of Naoko Inose and photos of Shintaro Ishihara at my archive here:

  1. Suitably demonic picture 😉

  2. Yes he was campaigning with Ishihara that day. There was a lit handrail around the top of the van they stood on top of that gave them all a rather scarier than usual effect.
