Grandson of Yôkai


The late Shinzo Abe was the longest-serving prime minister of all time, having held office for 2,822 consecutive days. Even after stepping down as prime minister, he was known as a kingmaker and maintained his exceptional influence until an assassin’s bullet struck him. While his hawkish diplomatic policy and economic policies represented by so-called “Abenomics” made him highly popular, he was also a man of controversial words and actions and a constant source of scandals.
Japan has become increasingly divided in recent years, and the disparity has widened. Also, the bad habit has taken root in politics: if you win an election, any problems and suspicions will disappear.
Who was this former Prime Minister Abe, whose slogan was “A beautiful country, Japan”? What did he leave behind for this country?
