Protesters belonging to the nationalist movement "Ganbare Nippon" hold a placard which reads "Regime Change" near the Diet building in Tokyo. More than 1,000 people marched Thursday, demanding Prime Minister Naoto Kan's resignation. They cited failures in Kan's recent foreign policies such as his slow response to the North Korean missile shelling on the South Korean island of Yeonpyeong and the muddle over the diplomatic spat with China over the disputed islands in the East China Sea. Support for Japan's government has dropped to 27%, the lowest since Kan took office in June, with voters unhappy over his handling of rows with China and Russia.© Japan Today
