Japan finance minister says may have to skip G20 meet due to domestic issues

"Yes, the G20 countries are a second priority for me. You see I am never actually home, and I never spend time with my wife. I'm usually at the kyabakura and snack bars. But now I have to solve some issues, that may or may not actually exist. So someone else will go and do my job. Carry on."
