Old Ishihara is still with us?? Well, maybe he needs to stay alive long enough to help Hashimoto kun learn when to shut up??

This crusty old thing is starting to smell.

I truly thought he was eating an ice cream cone

If he was too old to campaign properly for the Tokyo elections, as he admitted himself, I have no idea what good he thinks he'll be able to do this time around. Best place for him is a nursing home.

I thought he died

He looks like an old, partially confused, retired guy eating an ice cream cone.

He's dead, but someone forgot to tell him!

Ishihara is the face of the ugly Japanese denials/revisions of history. It is truly disappointing he still has enough support to even consider running in the election.

I had the most unfortunate experience yesterday to be walking past when he was talking. It was at the Ginza 4-chome intersection. The good news is that there were very few people stopping to listen. Most people there have more important things to do, like shopping.

I too thought it was an ice-cream when I saw the photo. I'll buy him an ice-cream if it shuts him up for a few minutes.

@Elbuda Mexicano, I don't think him sticking around to teach Hashimoto when to shut up would help. He himself clearly also doesn't know when to shut up. Their whole party needs to be silenced.

Hopefully, the more you and Hashimoto talk, the less more people will want to have anything to do with you never mind vote for you or your party.

I thought The Walking Dead was finished until October?

I get weak bowels every time I see his face.... Why is he eating an vanilla ice cream cone ?

He's soooooo cool - not.

"Suckers - I mean, 'people' - of Japan, I am once again running for office. Please lend me your money...erm, and support...for this effort."

I thought it was Naoto Kan
