Businessman Hiroyuki Nishimura, 45, a.k.a. “Hiroyuki,” updated his Twitter page on September 13 to sarcastically criticize the Kishida cabinet after an invitation to former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s state funeral, which will be held on September 27, was sent to director Amon Miyamoto, 64.
On the same day, Miyamoto uploaded an image of the invitation and wrote, “Why is this for me? There must be some mistake. I’m not a politician and have never even been invited to a cherry blossom viewing party. Of course I’m not going. I’m against the #NationalFuneral,” Miyamoto said.
Retweeting this post, Hiroyuki sarcastically commented, “The Kishida cabinet is sending out invitations all over the place because there aren’t enough people to attend the state funeral.
