Campaign

This is democracy — Japanese style. Campaign provides a startling insider's view of Japanese electoral politics in this portrait of a man plucked from obscurity by the ruling Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) to run for a critical seat on a suburban city council. Kazuhiko "Yama-san" Yamauchi's LDP handlers are unworried that he has zero political experience, no charisma, no supporters, and no time to prepare. What he does have is the institutional power of Japan's modern version of Tammany Hall pushing him forward.
