Topic - Yuriko Koike
The Japanese government wants the country's suit-loving salarymen to be bold this summer. Ditch the stuffy jacket and tie. For the good of a country facing a power crunch, go light and casual.
Japanese Defense Minister Yuriko Koike said yesterday Tokyo remained committed to its role in the U.S.-led military operation in Afghanistan despite major political gains last month by an opposition party that has demanded an end to the mission.
"When we started Cool Biz in 2005, people said it was undignified and sloppy," Mr. Koike said at the fashion show, held at a Tokyo department store. "But this is now the sixth year, and people have grown accustomed to it."
