How much do you want to bet Abe is going to promise massive financial investment to these nations on the very same day he has said the Consumption Tax has to go up as scheduled next year because Japan has no money?

While you're in Belgium, why not try some of those Trappist beers. Like Westvleteren XII, which has won more than one award as Best Beer in the World.

Brussels would be a better place for the expected ‚Japan house‘ campaign to spend the millions on than London.

Today Abe is in my country. Spain I'll be watching what he says on television. I hope Japan doesn't leave a lot of money here. Investing here is a ruin because the money you invest is money that goes to waste.

You can ask me any question about his visit. I will try to keep an eye on the press conference between Abe and Sanchez.

I don't think even a magic spell can wake up the sleeping populace.

The guy spends more time on his new airplane then at home. It's a double edged argument don't want him here, but don't want to be funding him elsewhere either.

At 6:30 PM Spanish time the meeting between the President of Spain Pedro Sanchez and PM Abe is scheduled. After that meeting they will give a press conference. I will be aware of the agreements between both countries.

National Nippon's European Vacation.

Past abductions of Japanese Nationals by NK is not really a European issue. It ia really a matter between Japan and NK.

I think that he just wants to bring the subject up so that he can return to Japan and say that the Europeans support him (even if the Europeans say nothing).
