Newly elected Japanese Premier Yukio Hatoyama may have the nickname "Alien" but it is his wife who is getting all the alien attention.
Miyuki Hatoyama, the wife of the premier-in-waiting, wrote the following in a book published last year: "While my body was asleep, I think my soul rode on a triangular-shaped UFO and went to Venus". In describing the planet she added that is was a "very beautiful place and it was really green."
Miyuki's book "Very Strange Things I've Encountered" contains the full account of her extraterrestrial experience which took place over 20 years ago.
Reuters reports that Yukio Hatoyama, 62, the rich grandson of a former prime minister, was once nicknamed "the alien" for his prominent eyes.
