Underground idols, housewives, and AV actresses, can these irrelevant girls also form a political party?
In Japan, you can not only participate in elections, but also become full-time members of the city, district and even the National Assembly.
It’s called the “Politician Women’s 48 Party”, a national political party full of beautiful women.
When Takashi Tachibana, the leader of the “Protecting the Kuomintang from NHK” party announced his resignation a month ago, no one expected that he would give up his position to a young girl with no political experience.
Otsu Ayaka, with big eyes and iron bangs, a standard Japanese idol image, had just passed her 30th birthday when she took over the position of party leader.
As a former child star, her life seems to have nothing to do with politics. If she had to say something, she played the daughter of political commentator Akira Chishang in a children’s news program. The moment when the two characters are closest.
And Takashi Tachibana not only passed on her, but also changed the name of the “NHK Party” to “Politician Women’s 48 Party”, and openly recruited beautiful girls who intend to enter politics.
You must know that the NHK party is not a pheasant party, but a national political party that is holding seats in the National Assembly.
It has always followed the Trump-style route of the devil in the world, and it is male-dominated from top to bottom.
Now it suddenly changed its name to “Political Women’s Party” and switched to a girl group model. The impact is like Comrade Trump suddenly put on a miniskirt, claiming to use love and magic to defeat evil forces.
Having not yet won any new seats in the official elections, the “Political Women’s Party” has become the most popular new party in Japan at the moment.
Open the official website of the “Politician Women’s 48 Party”, and rows of busts of beautiful women flash one by one, showing a standard smile with 8 teeth.
Coupled with the girly color scheme of tender pink and light yellow, it makes people suspicious that they accidentally clicked into the support session of which girl group.
In the crowds of street elections, it is always necessary to identify candidates from other parties with the help of ribbons or posters. But identifying candidates for the “Political Women’s Party” doesn’t have to be so troublesome, just remember two characteristics:
young and beautiful.
There is no doubt that the “Political Women’s Party” has become the political party with the highest average appearance in Japanese history.
On the roadside bulletin board, among the stereotyped portraits of middle-aged and elderly men, the collagen-filled smiles of the “Political Women’s Party” candidates quietly bloomed like camellias.
However, although there are many beautiful girls, there is almost no political experience.
Compared with the women’s group draft, they are like a group of rookie trainees, they can’t sing or dance, they only have beauty and enthusiasm.
Many don’t even have a proper campaign card.
Highly beautiful private photos, paired with unspeakably inferior PS backgrounds, are like small advertising cards stuffed in the door cracks of some late-night hotels.
The election manifesto is also like an idol girl group’s self-introduction.
Toyota Rika, who is running for the Central District Councilor in Tokyo, is such a “stupid beauty”. Her election manifesto says:
I grew up under the excessive protection of my parents, and I listened to my parents in everything. As a result, when I grew up, I became the kind of person who would not take the initiative and would only wait for instructions from others.
I joined the Politician Women’s 48 Party to change myself and become self-reliant. I hope everyone supports it!
The serious local elections were instantly interspersed with the idol promotion scene of love and dreams.
Some members of the girl group even joined the “Political Women’s Party”.
Moo Yamamoto, a former member of HKT48, is preparing to run for the district council election in Suginami District, Tokyo.
There are also a few members who simply formed a new group called “Fly Day”. Taking the opportunity of the election, they made their debut while promoting it.
One day they might still be holding small trumpets and preaching their political views on the street, and the next day they would appear at a fan meeting, singing and dancing enthusiastically in short skirts.

Of course, there are also serious players.
Active AV actress Yoshikawa Lianmin is one of them.
I’m going to be a politician!
In a sex video office in Tokyo, Yoshikawa, who has small facial features, announced loudly that her colleagues were startled by her, and then realized that she was for real.
A clerk hesitated: “So…do you want to stop selling your works?”
Yoshikawa declined, and she wasn’t about to hide her experience, even writing it into her twitter profile:
A former self-defense member who resigned due to workplace bullying is trying to sell himself to make money in order to repay the liquidated damages. The custom is 50,000 yen once.
Yoshikawa believes that it is the evil of the system that forces her to take the road of customs.
Graduated from the famous Japanese University of Defense Medicine, Yoshikawa worked as a nurse in the Self-Defense Forces before resigning. This is a career with a bright future. As long as you stay up to the age of 40, you can earn 8 million yen (about 415,800 yuan) a year.
However, after suffering severe workplace bullying, Yoshikawa would rather pay 4 million liquidated damages and resign than patiently wait for an annual salary of 8 million. In order to collect a huge amount of liquidated damages in the short term and avoid paying up to 14.5% of the liquidated damages overdue annual interest, Yoshikawa chose to go to sea.
Unfortunately, it was just in time for the implementation of the new AV law. As an amateur, her videos could not be released as scheduled, because the law stipulates that in order to protect the “right to regret” of new actresses, all videos can only be released after a buffer period of several months.
In desperation, Yoshikawa had to sell his body further.
Knowing that the “Political Women’s Party” was recruiting amateur candidates, she immediately signed up: “I want to expose the darkness of the Self-Defense Forces from the perspective of the scene, and tell those who want to legislate as soon as they slap their heads, how unrealistic the new AV law is!”
If you think the “Political Women’s Party” is outrageous enough, then its predecessor “Protecting the Kuomintang from NHK” is the originator of Japanese political entertainment.
Whenever the “NHK Party” appears, the lifeless political arena will turn into a sea of joy.
In Japan, where all members are socially phobic, the NHK party is an anomaly. Every now and then, the NHK party will make news, mostly because the party leader or party members have done something out of the ordinary that makes people roll their eyes.
Perhaps at this point in the evolution of the times, every country will inevitably have a political party leader who is familiar with social media. The founder of the NHK party, Takashi Tachibana, is just such a social media guru.
The word “doing things” is inherently written in Tachibana’s genes. From the name of the party, it can be seen that this person has no idea what “contemplation” is.
The NHK Party was first established because of a simple resentment—should NHK receive viewing fees?
NHK is a state-run TV station. Since there are no advertisements, in order to balance revenue, it will charge viewers a viewing fee. But many Japanese believe that since it is a state-run TV station supported by tax money, it should not charge citizens again.
When the NHK Party was first established, there was only one policy program – to overthrow NHK and abolish the NHK fee system.
Because the slogan is very relieved, it quickly became famous.
Since then, Takashi Tachibana has embarked on the road of stabbing against his old club NHK.
For example, broadcasting an AV openly in a congressional meeting, and NHK is in the predicament of “Nine Turns of the Large Intestine”——
If the live broadcast is truthful, it will violate NHK’s regulations that no obscene videos can be broadcast. If the live broadcast is coded, it will destroy the factual principle of the parliamentary live broadcast.
The “NHK Party” is never short of topicality. Under Takashi Tachibana’s intentional operation, it is the king of traffic among young people.
“Political Women’s Party” is not the first time the “NHK Party” has changed its name. In fact, the political party founded in 2013 has changed its name 8 times in just 10 years——
Because changing the name once can make news once!
Takashi Tachibana even considered changing the name to “Let the number of seats be reduced naturally” to play the role of a shit-stirring stick:
If a member of this party is successfully elected, then after being elected, the member will use the rules of Congress to resign, leaving a virtual vacancy in the seat.
Didn’t everyone say that it is better not to elect the current MPs? Isn’t this proposal brilliant?
Unfortunately, because no candidate was found willing to cooperate, this genius plan was ultimately aborted.
In July last year, this traffic surge reached its peak with the appearance of another “horse catcher” Donggu Yihe.
If a new political party wants to become a national political party, it needs to win at least 5 parliamentary seats, or obtain more than 2% of the votes.
Higashitani Yoshikazu helped the “NHK Party” achieve its goal with just one battle.
In a sense, he is also the pioneer of many Japanese political records——
The first person to be elected to Congress by breaking news and gossip, and the first person to be removed from Parliament because of prolonged absence from meetings.
He single-handedly brought the NHK Party into the palace of the national government and political party, and immediately became an international wanted object.
Before running for the election, Donggu Yihe fled to Dubai to avoid debts because of huge debts. Due to successive revelations of celebrities’ scandals on YouTube’s personal channel, many house collapses and big melons were released, which earned him the nickname “Donggu Pao”.
After running for the election, he declared that if he was elected, he would break news about a popular star every day for 49 consecutive days. Unexpectedly, the masses were enthusiastic about eating melons, and directly sent this old Lai to the throne of a member of Congress with an absolute high vote of 287,714 votes.
Because the vote rate exceeded 2% of the national vote, even the political party “NHK Party” to which it belonged followed the chicken dog to heaven and obtained the qualifications of a political party in the National Assembly.
● On the winning site, the person in the lower right corner of the screen is Donggu Yihe who participated remotely
In Donggu Yihe’s election campaign, young voters defied the norm of political apathy, with more than 50% of voters under the age of 30.
“I feel that if I choose Donggu, things will become more interesting.”
“My husband and I voted for the East Valley. This is definitely a moment of historic revolution!”
An ordinary election is turned upside down in a social media frenzy.
On the day when the election results were announced, Donggu shouted triumphantly in the live broadcast: “All old men who are sleeping in Congress, stand up! Please be prepared to tremble!”
● Vote for Yihe Higashiya
However, since then, Donggu has never dared to return to Japan due to his inability to repay his debts and being sued by celebrities for damage to his reputation.
Due to his long-term absence and his refusal to be present to apologize, not long ago, the Japanese Diet happily launched a vote to remove this “democratic political stain”. The resolution was passed almost unanimously, with only one member of the “NHK Party” expressing opposition.
So, without going to work for a day, East Valley ended his trip to Congress. Now, without the protection of his status as a congressman, he will face an international arrest warrant issued by the Japanese police.
Because of this incident, Takashi Tachibana announced his resignation and no longer served as the leader of the “NHK Party”.
It was announced on March 8, International Women’s Day, that the position of the party leader would be passed on to Otsu Ayaka, and the party would be renamed the “Politician Women’s 48 Party”.
Such a child’s play party has attracted much attention among young people.
Last year’s data showed that among young people, the support rate of the “NHK Party” has surpassed that of the established political parties “Communist Party” and “Komei Party.”
Although it often comes to nonsense, it is interesting enough, like a political substitute who can’t speak his mind, helping young people get all the mouth addictions they have ever thought of.
● Light green is the support rate of “NHK Party”
Like many established developed countries, Japanese young people are becoming increasingly indifferent to politics due to the political elite.
As of last year, data show that in the councils at the town and village level, 76.9% of council members are over 60 years old, and less than 0.2% of council members are under 30 years old. Walking into the council is like entering a nursing home.
Young people said: “Politics is a pool of stagnant water without wind, and I can’t change it even if I go there.” Neither want to vote, nor to be the person to be voted.
But the “NHK Party” is different. It kicks all the traditional political rules and operates in a new era of operation. These seemingly impulsive and immature practices of young people are actually behind the traffic keys of the cyber era. The operation has opened up politics and young people’s refusal.
After all, no amount of constitutional education can bring back young people who are drifting away. Only by becoming companions can we move forward together.
● The Liberal Democratic Party’s large-page election advertisements in newspapers rarely feature young faces
After Yoshikazu Higashiya brought huge damage to his reputation, changing the name of the “NHK Party” to the “Politician Women’s 48 Party” is a brilliant move.
Although they didn’t even manage to get 48 members—there’s only 46—it didn’t stop them from attracting a lot of curious eyes.
The replacement of a young female party leader has won more favor for the “NHK Party”. Compared with destroying NHK, allowing more women to participate in politics is undoubtedly a more universal construction.
An all-female political party is rare in the world, let alone a country as male-dominated as Japan.
From the data point of view, the proportion of female members of Japan’s House of Representatives and House of Representatives is only a poor 14.6%, which can only rank 147th among 190 countries in the world.
On the bright side, female senior officials such as Yuriko Koike are not uncommon, but at the grassroots level, parliamentary politics is still dominated by men.
Specific to the end of the capillaries, only 11.7% of the members of the town and village councils are female.
In Japan, it is not too difficult to become a member of parliament, especially in local counties and cities far away from Tokyo and Osaka.
In the 20th local elections this year, 25% of local councilors were elected directly without voting because there was no competition.
There is no competition for a quarter of the jobs, and it’s a real good job.
According to modern people’s definition of work, the career of a member of parliament is simply an ideal in the world-more money and less work.
According to “Fat Chaplain” by Daisuke Ito, a city councilor in a city with a population of 160,000, only needs to work 38 days a year to earn 7.62 million yen.
The work content of these 38 days is mainly meetings, and the meetings of members of parliament usually start at 9 am and end at three or four in the afternoon.
What’s even more tempting is that, as mentioned earlier, for such a four-year job, the competition ratio is only 1.17, which is basically equivalent to being able to be selected as long as you submit an application.
Many MPs even treat parliamentary work as a part-time job.
But why are there so few young women engaged in such beautiful jobs?
Yuki Hashimoto, representative director of the Japan Youth Association, pointed out that one constraint is that although citizens can vote at the age of 18, citizens do not have the right to be elected until they are 25 years old.
When women are over 25 years old, they are often married and have children. The ties of their families make it difficult for them to give up their current jobs and run for parliamentarians at the risk of losing their jobs.
In addition, equal rights between men and women have been talked about for many years. In these fields that were originally male, girls who try to get involved still have to bear a lot of “damp malice.”
Yuri Saito, who is running for Shinjuku District Councilor, gave a street speech. After a busy day, she turned around and saw that her propaganda flag was locked on the railing with a bicycle lock.
This may be just a prank by a naughty boy, but it is a very embarrassing blow to a political newcomer.
After another candidate released his campaign poster, someone left a message asking for the price: How much do you sell for 60 minutes?
In addition, they don’t like to talk about war, the constitution and international politics, and the political views of female candidates are often ridiculed as naive.
I want to build areas suitable for all mothers and children to live in.
I want to solve the employment and loan problems of female students.
I want to pay attention to the living rights of the mentally ill.
As political newcomers, the candidates of the “Political Women’s Party” are not like politicians, they are more like newcomers who are talking about their troubles in life.
● Someone posted a small card of the political women’s party (position 6) on the bulletin board of election posters, satirizing the party
I know there must be no results, but I want more people to see that women with no experience can vote.
The 32-year-old vocalist Tomoka Yamade chose to run for governor of Kyoto this year.
As expected, she lost 1,612 votes, but she was still very happy: “I don’t have any fame or experience, but through the efforts of the campaign during this period, I gained the trust of 1,612 people.”
The supporters had already expected her fiasco. After the battle report was published, everyone came to laugh and laugh, but no one was depressed:
See you this year and fight again next year!
In the 20th unified local elections this year, there were 100 more female candidates than in the previous one, of which the “Political Women’s Party” accounted for 46 people.
Some people yelled their political opinions in front of the fans, and the funny facial deformity got viral spread and imitation.
Some people sang and danced for autograph signings, shook hands with fans, and handed out campaign posters to meet and vote.
Their approach to the campaign may seem out of place to the staid older MPs, but it’s attracting social media traffic.
The hot social topics suggest that these young girls like newborn calves may have the opportunity to break through some barriers and create some miracles like Donggu.
A few days ago, the leader of the party, Otsu Ayaka, was also full of ambition: “Although I don’t have much political experience, after I finish the election, I will definitely sort out the financial problems of my party thoroughly, clean up the evils, and be completely open and transparent!”
However, shortly after this speech, a thunderbolt rewrote the ending of the fairy tale of the “Political Women’s Party”.
Takashi Tachibana, who was on the throne of Zen, suddenly issued a statement, claiming to remove Otsu Ayaka from the position of party leader, restore the party leader himself, and elect another male member of the party as a parliamentary representative.
The reason is that Otsu is suspected of illegally misappropriating party funds.
Otsu immediately defended and submitted evidence to show his financial innocence, but the former “NHK Party” who had just changed its name to “Political Women’s Party” less than a month ago chose to accept the arrangement of the former party leader Tachibana without any objection.
The man who had easily handed over his power to others waved his hand as if he had given up his power, and the power returned to his hands.
A fantasy dream of women’s renewal suddenly shattered, and Otsu discovered that easy gain is always accompanied by easy loss.
It turns out that this is still a sumo wrestling match, and “unclean” women still have no right to enter the round arena.
