UFOs? She sounds more like the wife of some hack from the future footnote party, i.e. Komeito.

Tried to eat the sun this morning, but my arms are too short- will use a ladder tomorrow.

Tell the Hatoyama family to stop eating the sun.

That's their plan to combat global warming, don't knock it!

Is this whacko chick the same one that bought up all the land from Nissan in nishi-tokyo, (the former test track) to create her very own compound for her cult?

"Eh? According to Oxford English Dictionary a "first lady" is "the wife of the President of the US or other head of state". The BBC has no problem describing Mrs Brown as Britain's first lady."

The prime minister is not the head of state. That's the Queen in the UK and the Emperor in Japan.

Or perhaps there really is more to it that many people just close their minds off from thinking that they already know the answers, and know everything that is out there.

Is an interesting read for anyone for whom the topic interests

It wasn't Venus she traveled to, it was Planet X. That's where she picked up that Miss Namikawa hairdo. And it was actually Russ Tamblyn she met in a previous incarnation, not TC. She must be having some Matango for breakfast every morning along with her sunshine. And if I'm not mistaken, the Mu's were completely destroyed by Atragon in 1963. I didn't know they were still in business.

She comes come great wealth on her family's side. And she is 4-5 years older than her husband. Two strikes already.

Maybe she has been eating too much wasabi in her onigiri.

Or perhaps too much Suntory Red was drunk one night long ago.

There is the ontological problem that a soul, being non-physical, does not need - actually, could not use - a physical vehicle (space ship) to travel. Or perhaps her soul was travelling in a space ship soul.

..and once aboard this triangle ship, they blasted their way through many asteroids.

Oh, wait.. that's a game.

I like the Sun eating line. I wonder if it's spicy?

There was a rumor that Yukio Hatoyama is a Freemason and she claiming that traveled to Venus in a triangular shaped UFO, I think that tells something. Also Hatoyama's nicknames isn't "alien"?

Hey, how many Japanese husbands offer to wash the dishes?

She is also in charge of making her husband look presentable and healthy.

This is easy. She just hides the shrimp crackers.

So when is she going to say. "Beam me up, Scotty!"?

It's going to be interesting to see how she handles the publicity and if she has her husband's ear. But it might be useful. Maybe she can get her alien friends to zap Kim Jong Il? Of course they refer to her husband as "the alien." Maybe they are right and this is the first interspecies marriage on record?

We're going to have fun with this, aren't we?

I like her also because she looks so 'real' Japanese, .. black hair 'n stuff. Kinda rare these days.

Miyuki Hatoyama claims her soul traveled to Venus on UFO

I think the J-Cop should test her whether she took any illegal drug to find out the source of her hallucination.

”You must not live here. The whole country is already kooky”

I have lived here for over 25 Years! She is the fun kind of kookie, you can tell she has spent time overseas, she has learned how to loosen up, maybe a little too much, but I still say it is a good thing!

She is clearly following in the footsteps of Nancy Reagan and Cherie Blair by joining the nutty wives club.

Once Hatoyama is in as Prime Minister, there will be no more interviews with Miyuki-san.

She's just joking around and the article is written as a humor piece.

@Yelnatss: Yeah, nothing like having pieces of Sun in your lap. I can just see the state dinner menus in Japan now. The salad is green stuff from venus and the main course is a bit of ol' Sol. Yummy!

I like this woman. She is going to go far in life. Perhaps she will do to Obama what George Bush did to ...what's his name? You know, heave dinner.

Tell the Hatoyama family to stop eating the sun. Other people need it to see! Keep her in the news! This is waaaay funnier than anything Aso has said!

Didn't she mention previously that she had something in common with Michelle Obama? "Sensibility" was the word I think. Some nerve :)

If I was Hatoyama, I'd be making damn sure she didn't go anywhere near a camera or reporter for the next several years. It's going to be a matter of days before this is the laughing stock of the western world.

I'm disappointed that there is not a bigfoot or chupacabra element to her story. Afterall, aren't all triangle shaped alien spacecraft driven by random X-files characters?

Can't help but wonder how much of this stuff the hubby has subscribed to.

I thought people got locked up for going off the farm like this. If she threw in a moose story she would be as loopy as Palin.

The lead actor is Tom Cruise, of course. Why? Because I know he was Japanese in a previous life.

Given that he was why would he recognise her? She was obviously a fruit cake in her previous life!

She's definitely a pickled plum short of a bento.

Is she sure it didn't travel to Uranus?

Wow what a crack, now has media attention so says anything to keep it.

Wonder if Cruise was a complete jerk in his previous life as well.

"It was an extremely beautiful place and was very green," she said.

I doubt it would be green on Venus. More like a blast furnace.

Look at it this way, a prime minister whose wife believes she traveled to Venus beats having the LDP in power.

I saw Tom Cruise 3 previous lifes ago. He was Fijian at that time. Probably just working his way around the Pacific Rim. Currently I'm Australian which is a change from being an Inuit last time. Those winters are harsh.

If ever Mrs Hatoyama meets Mrs Obama I wonder what they'll talk about?

Mrs. O.: How did Obama City get its name, Miyuki?

Mrs. H.: He lived there in a previous lifetime. By the way, you have a very nice aura.

"I have a dream that I still believe will come true"

Me too, Mrs. Hatoyama! We are both fortunate in that respect.

You are soulmates and met in your previous life.

Me too, Mrs. Hatoyama! We are both fortunate in that respect. Too many people have no hopes or dreams for the future.

Doesn't she know any good barbers?

At least he has some nice hair that most Western men after a certain age lose.

epic fail unless it involves her personally dragging him backwards through a hedge every morning

Based on my experiences in this country, and with no desire to appear derogatory or sarcastic, I'd describe Mrs. Hatoyama's hallucinations and fantasies as completely normal behavior for a Japanese woman.

Well this explains the jeans she wore when casting her vote but clearly this woman should be censored. Traveled to Venus....? its Green? eats the sun....? hum....hum...hum...? Mr. Hatoyama also eats the sun...? They must be part of one of Japans weird religious cults although it seems a harmless one so far.

Just from the photo I can tell that Mrs Hatoyama has a very interesting and particular aura.

So the husband is an alien and the wife is "different". It seems that we are going to be in for one hell of a ride.

Perhaps the new Prime Minister might consider having his wife become the Foreign Minister. Can you imagine the confusion that trips to Venus would cause overseas?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

The wife of a PM is not a first lady. Mrs. Brown is not Britain's first lady; that's a silly thing to say.

Eh? According to Oxford English Dictionary a "first lady" is "the wife of the President of the US or other head of state". The BBC has no problem describing Mrs Brown as Britain's first lady.

I think a little kookiness will be good for Japan!

You must not live here. The whole country is already kooky.

This is the same as Nancy Reagan and her astrologists.... it will all blow over.

She also claims that her soul has traveled to Venus on a UFO.

Yeah? I'll have whatever she's smoking.

I also eat the sun

Is that what the drug is called?

“My husband has recently started doing that too,”

Yup, Japan's screwed.

At least there will be a little color in the seat of power sphere this time around.

Spiritualism is fine in moderation and with reason. But seems the world is just as full of people ready to believe anything as it was thousands of years ago. Perhaps it is the nature of humanity to need such stories and dreams to find reality in existence.

Maybe I should start that new church afterall...

Trips to Venus? Maybe that's where she found the "alien"?

At least she has a sense of humour which will probably come in handy during the days ahead. Good for her!

A little, sure I can agree with that. This bat is off her rocker. Hope we do not see a trend of this and some small cult that gets based off of her.
