A wise man once told me Japanese women turn very bizarre once rich. Anyway this shot oddly reminded me of John and Yoko.

Hehe she's actually in the middle of a tense exchange with him:

"Dear, you have simply got to call off that JAXA venus probe business, they'll ruin everything!"

Hatoyama: I think I'm toast.......

Miyuki-san: Don't worry, I'll ask for some advice from Tanaka Kakuei tonight during my seance...by the way, I wished you had worn that nice blue/red/green shirt I picked out for you to wear at the Real Hato BBQ.....

Ummmm ... shouldn't the car be there when they walk out the door? Hatoyama should take this as a sign and fade into (further) obscurity!

They look comfortable with each other.

Despite her age and her sometimes funny thoughts & messages, she still looks like a fine woman.

I think she is looking up in hopes that Aliens will take her away again. Wasn't it Venus or something that she was teleported to?

What a great first couple. Mister Pendulum master of indecision and Misses Venus Traveller. Makes one sleep soundly at night in the knowledge that Japan rests in such capable hands.

I can't help it today: It really looks like she didn't do her 'gobbling up the sun' routine, maybe it was cloudy Monday morning.

Hatoyama: Where's the car ? Where's the car ? Hurrrrryyyy driver !!! Where's the freakin car ? I feel the end of my political career is near !!! Miyuki: Is Mayonaise,chicken,seafood pizza night canceled ?

Hatoyama: No it's still on !!! I really have to go tinkle, where's the car ? Ohhh, nobody loves me Miyuki !!!! I feel like an unwanted sack of %$#&& (nicely freshed washed veggies). What did I do to deserve this ?

Miyuki: Well, you know if you focused on the economy 1st and had low key talks about Okinawa you would still have a political career today. But you never listen to me. That's why you wear loud shirts for attention, because nobody loves you anymore baby. But I'll give you some tonight !!!! Please wear that rainbow checkered bbq shirt tonight baby. Your still my PM of the bedroom baby.

Hatoyama: Sorry, baby I just want to curl up in a ball tonight when I get home. Hey, let's just get a taxi !!!! I don't have any cash on me can you spot me!!! Ahhh, I hate Monday's !!!!!!

my2sense : "A wise man once told me Japanese women turn very bizarre once rich. Anyway this shot oddly reminded me of John and Yoko" . . . not so wise, nor smart either. Both YOKO ONO & JOHN LENNON WERE MASTERS IN THEIR SEPERATE GENRES OF ART.

What an artistic shot

Politics aside, THEY ARE AN ELEGANT COUPLE - - and clearly still very much in love - - MIYUKI is entitled to her beliefs just as Christians and Jews and Muslims . . and SHE IS BEAUTIFUL & ELEGANT AT 60

they look like a couple of fools who are trying hopelessly to strike a meaningful pose for photographers. She trying to look like a supportive wife, he trying to look like a deep thinker.

However, she looks like an alien abductee, and he looks like an escapee from the nuthouse.

Yukio: I don't care what other people says about me. Its only you that matter to me Miyuki. I love you.

Miyuki: yeah right..

Miyuki: Ahh, you look very handsome today.

Hatoyama: That's only because you made me wear this stupid tie that matches. I'd rather wear my favorite shirt that I wore the other day.

They look good. I guess they were bored stiff with the imperial people. Also strange they are kept waiting, doesn't seem so efficient.

She looks as if she just spotted a space ship.
