Cool Japan’s True Incarnation

Is it really okay for a 72-year-old to look this cool eating ice cream in front of a convenience store?” Twitter user Hiroo Mizuno asked followers on June 14.

The 72-year-old in question was neither a movie star nor a rock star. Rather, he was Rozen Aso, the world most powerful otaku, surrounded by body guards and chomping on an ice-cream bar in front of a Lawson’s convenience store.

  2. Minister of FInance Aso = Otaku no Obasan .
