Yoko Kamikawa, who became Japan's first female foreign minister in around two decades, is also expected to visit New York on her first overseas trip as top diplomat.

An all-expense paid trip to NYC on the taxpayer yen, yet another jaunt for Kishida, which most probably will be summed up by " I know we are a G7 nation with a one party oligopoly that is ranked 125th in the world in terms of gender equity; but look, here's a woman who looks a bit different from the usual gerontocrat!"

The LDP should be ashamed of such tokenism.

Japan Wins Wider Understanding over Treated Water: Kishida

-7 ( +9 / -16 )

Seems a bit like a page out of Shinzo Abe's book by going on an overseas PR campaign. The difference is the economy is in the gutter with the average family feeling much poorer than just a decade ago.

He does not seem to have noticed he was not minister for foreign affairs anymore…

7 ( +11 / -4 )

Is Kishida actually the Prime Minister of Japan or the leader of the free world?

We don't get to see him in Japan anymore.

While his own country crashes and burns he is off living it big.

Most Japanese people think twice nowadays about buying a carton of eggs because the price has edged up so alarmingly.

In the meantime he is living it large on his 2 planes to wherever.

To counter his negative ratings he appoints Sanae Takaichi as one of his ministers........golden!

Kishida must hold the Japanese people in utter contempt; spending the povert stricken taxpayers’ money and polluting the globe at the same time-a complete wastrel!

The gatherings come as the United Nations has been viewed as dysfunctional in dealing with international disputes, especially those over the Ukraine war launched in February last year by Russia, a veto-wielding permanent member of the world body's Security Council.

Kishida seeks to "emphasize the significance of efforts to strengthen the function of the United Nations, including reforms" of the body at the General Assembly, Matsuno added.

Wait, what?

Kish doesn't even know how to run HIS own country.

But he's going to help "reform" international issues?

Do other leaders actually invite this clown? Or is he just on the list as a plus 1?

What does he know about solving anything?

All he knows is how to rack up a bill and take PR pics.

Does Kishida have a sister or a daughter?

I mean, I probably rather see one of them running around the globe taking pics and posing as opposed to him.

Good! I prefer to not travel to avoid jet lag.

Yeah. Ask them for favors, Kishida. Next up, what sovereignty?

Citizens and residents are invited to chime in on his behavior, as the taxpaying ATM's.
