Hashimoto Admits it All – Had Affair and Doesn’t Even Deny Cosplay

Osaka Mayor Toru Hashimoto has admitted to an extramarital affair with a club hostess prior to entering public office, confirming the revelation the day before a weekly tabloid magazine published a detailed account of their relationship Thursday.

The popular Hashimoto, who plans to support up to 300 candidates in the next Lower House election, said late Wednesday that the article in Shukan Bunshun magazine detailing his relationship with the woman in 2006 was generally true.

The article in Shukan Bunshun, which also revealed last autumn that Hashimotos father was a gangster, was described by the mayor as containing truths and distortions.
