Hosokawa, who is aiming to make Japan a nuclear-free country, said that he will run in next month's Tokyo gubernatorial election with the backing of Koizumi, another anti-nuclear advocate. The support by Koizumi, a popular former Liberal Democratic Party prime minister, is an embarrassment to the pro-nuclear LDP. (Photo by The Asahi Shimbun via Getty Images)
