Michelle Obama to visit Japan next month media - Yahoo News

feb 16 2015
Tokyo (AFP) - US First Lady Michelle Obama is set to visit Japan in March for the first time since her husband Barack Obama entered the White House, local media reported Monday.

She is likely to meet with Akie Abe, wife of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, but her visit will "have no particular political purposes", a source familiar with US-Japan ties told Kyodo.

Maybe she's going there to get the lap band surgery.

The First Lady did a wonderful job representing our country when she went to China

Sure she will do the same in Japan

I wish her well

Beijing hotel workers already 'fed up' with Obama entourage in 3400-square-foot, $8,350-per-night suite inconveniencing 'pretty much everyone' – and the first lady's mother is 'barking at the staff'
  • Michelle Obama, her daughters and her mother Marian Robinson are staying in a sumptuous presidential suite at a Beijing Westin hotel
  • Mrs. Robinson has been 'barking at the staff since she arrived,' a hotel staffer said, adding that 'we can't wait for this to be over'
  • Secret Service agents are monopolizing elevators and booting high-paying guests from their rooms to occupy a block of space near the first lady
  • Both front and back doors of the hotel are blocked off, with Chinese and U.S. security agents screening everyone who enters

Is that really the best you got? the Daily Mail quoting an unnamed source?

Michelle Obama was a rock star in China

I expect the same in Japan

Silenced?

I seem to remember the press reporting on her every day

Just because she wanted her family to have some personal space does not mean they were silenced

She's not a rock star here. Why the fuck would she be one somewhere else?
