|On the hustings, |
upper house independent candidate,
Yamamoto Taro in Ikebukuro
|A touch of overnight rain,|
|Preparing an article, |
I saw earlier in the week that he is due to appear at Shibuya on Saturday, but last night I learnt he'll be at Ikebukuro...just down the train line from me. My guess is that it will be a bit less crowded too. That's the main plan for today and then get home to draft the article and prepare for the interview with @reblev. Turns out to be a good call. Although there is much to say about Yamamoto over on the other blog, seeing him in action today gives me some really interesting material to write about and talk about with Rebecca...not the sort of stuff the mainstream media has been reporting.
His campaign has been driven very much in the social media sphere...and young people are keen and engaged. There'll be something in this I reckon.
I've still got to work out a way to see/hear the football, I'll probably settle for twitter (which I do). There's a TV show on too where contestants are split into blue and reddish/maroon teams...close enough for our purposes. Maroons win! >>>
Queensland wins too...eight in a row.
