The ‘Reiwa Shinsengumi’, a political party that highlights disability issues, and was created by Taro Yamamoto, responded with a poster about financial problems the vulnerable might face during the coronavirus crisis in Japan.

The slogan from the advert campaign from the Reiwa Shinsengumi website, can be translated as:

‘PRINT MONEY! HAND OUT TO EVERYONE!’

In July 2019 Yasuhiko Funago, who has ALS, and Eiko Kimura, who has cerebral palsy, won seats in Japan’s upper house election after both ran as candidates for Reiwa Shinsengumi, a political group founded in April by actor-turned-lawmaker Taro Yamamoto.
