Elections are coming very soon. Time to watch these funny political speeches held all around Tokyo, with politicians wearing white gloves climbing on the roof of their van (or bus sometimes) to deliver their speech to very variable crowds. Sometimes nobody seems to notice there’s someone shouting on his van. Sometimes the crowd is dense and compact, such as on this picture. This one shows a speech made by the Japan Communist Party in front of Shinjuku station. This was definitely one of the most impressive one I saw in Shinjuku (a very popular political speech area) in terms of attendance. A lot of people, obviously all fans of their leader, and perfectly well organized.
