 Kenya Akiba, former head of the Liberal Democratic Party’s Foreign Affairs Division, will visit San Francisco from Dec. 1. He will meet with senior members of the San Francisco city council and ask them not to build a comfort women memorial. San Francisco adopted in September a resolution calling for the city to build a memorial to the comfort women. Akiba will lobby them not to respond to the request from Chinese- and Korean-affiliated anti-Japanese groups that the city erect a comfort women memorial.
