The Japanese media keep reporting that Obama is staying for three days, but his stay is actually only 40 hours, I read. I heard he isn't staying at the Akasaka State Guest House but at a hotel. I wonder which one.

They made a big deal about him arriving at Narita, and some guessed it would be Yokota AB. That's why he arrived at Haneda, cuz nobody was expecting it. All a part of foiling any potential threat.

...and heads straight for Roppongi?

Seriously, I hope he accomplishes something useful. With more activity around the NK nuke test site it's time for the US to take a firm stand on Asia regional issues.

Abe will play Obama like a fiddle, if Obama's advisors don't wise up.
