Hi, my name is Takeaki Matsumoto.
But now another Takeaki Matsumoto comes into the spotlight.
Prime Minister Naoto Kan named political blue-blood and former banker Takeaki Matsumoto as the new Japanese Foreign Affairs Minister.
He has the same name as I!! haha
Only the kanji are different; He is 剛明 but I'm 岳朗.
The 51-year old politician traces his family to Japan's first Prime Minister Hirobumi Ito, who played a key role in te colonial rule of the Korean Peninsula before he was assassinated by Ahn Jung Geun(安重根) in 1909. His mother is Ito's granddaughter.
Now the Kan Cabinet is facing a pile of pressing diplomatic issues, including the contentious relocation of U.S. Marine Corps Air Station Futenma in Okinawa, territorial tussles with China over the Senkaku Islands in the East China Sea and Russia over the four northern disputed islands in Hokkaido.
Absolutely Matsumoto is in the severe situation soon after the Seiji Maehara's abruptly resignation.
I do not favor the Democratic Party of Japan over the other parties, but I wish well to another Takeaki.
