Taro Aso Reality Tour

Three young demonstrators were arrested by Japanese police in Shibuya, Tokyo after taking part in a "Reality Tour" to view Prime Minister Taro Aso's luxury mansion located in the area on October 26.



The march to the 6.2 billion yen apartment of Japan's latest PM, Taro Aso was organized by "Part-timer, Arbeiter, Freeter & Foreign Workers" to emphasise the income gap in Japanese society.

Japanese police argue the demonstration was unauthorized and they had issued warnings to the participants to stop before making their arrests.
