The Prime Minister’s Tutor
MP Katsuei Hirasawa tutored Prime Minister Abe when Hirasawa was a student at Tokyo University, which is the most prestigious national university in Japan. This was 50 years ago, when Prime Minister Abe was a student in elementary school. In Japan, children aged 6 to 12 old go to elementary schools. Hirasawa says that his colleagues often blame him for Abe’s political problems, saying that Abe ended up this way due to Hirasawa.
