"Early life" concern
It says under "early life" that Koizumi's father and grandfather were both gay.
One can only assume that this is vandalism... if anyone knows what it's actually supposed to say, please edit.
Let's get this article to FA status
Although this wikipedia page states that he did not appoint a successor, a BBC news page states that "Mr Abe was appointed by his immediate predecessor, Junichiro Koizumi" http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/asia-pacific/6990519.stm —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 05:58, 12 September 2007 (UTC)
Fair use rationale for Image:21apec5.jpg
Image:21apec5.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.
Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.
If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.
The olive baboon.jpg is the most ACCURATE depiction of koizumi. This is wikipedia, an online encyclopedia. All the facts contained within this article must be ACCURATE.
This article should be at Jun'ichirō Koizumi, which is the correct romanization for the subject's name. The majority of articles about Japanese people (politicians and otherwise) use macrons and whatnot when needed; there's no reason for this one to be an exception. -Amake (talk) 13:29, 28 June 2009 (UTC)
popular culture referance
Here is a link to an anime that features Junichiro Koizumi as a character. In it he "negotiates" with what seems to be N. Korea. Other PMs of Japan are characters as well. http://www.zomganime.com/reform-without-wasted-draws-the-legend-of-koizumi-1/ —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 07:01, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
