Nagoya Mayor prepares for this weekend's World Cosplay Summit
Sometimes politicians rise to the occasion and sometimes they don't. Nagoya Mayor Takashi Kawamura didn't do well when he made international news with an inappropriate welcome to visitors from Chinese sister city Nanjing. He did better when he prepared for this weekend's World Cosplay Summit by dressing as the hero of alt-history sci-fi comedy Gintama.
