Japan PM’s residence ‘not haunted’: Government

Tokyo, May 24 (IANS/RIA Novosti) The Japanese government has denied rumours which said the prime minister’s official residence was haunted.

The denial came after a query by an opposition lawmaker, who wanted to know if Prime Minister Shinzo Abe had not yet moved into his official residence, five months after coming to power, because of rumours that the building was haunted by the ghosts of young military officers who died there in a failed 1936 military coup.

“We are not aware” of any ghosts, the government said, in a written response to the enquiry by Ken Kagaya, an upper house member of the Democratic Party of Japan.

“It is true that there are many rumours,” chief cabinet secretary Yoshihide Suga told a news conference.
