Ladies and gents, meet the soon-to-be first couple of Japanese politics, Mr. and Mrs. Yukio Hatoyama. Miyuki, the wife, is quite an interesting character &mdash she used to be a Takarazuka actor, is an excellent cook, and authored a book called Very Strange Things I’ve Encountered. In it, she writes about a journey she took on a UFO:
While my body was asleep, I think my soul rode on a triangular-shaped UFO and went to Venus. It was a very beautiful place and it was really green.
Another one of the very strange things she claims to have encountered is actor Tom Cruise. Apparently, Cruise used to be Japanese in his past life, and that’s why they met. Who knew?
Mrs. Hatoyama also admittedly likes to chomp on the sun for energy. MSNBC reports:
“I also eat the sun,” Hatoyama said on the program, looking up with her eyes closed, raising her arms high as if she was tearing pieces off an imaginary sun. “Like this, hum, hum, hum. It gives me enormous energy.”
