Japan denies PM residence haunting

The Japanese government has denied rumors that the prime minister's residence is haunted.

Despite assuming power five months ago, Shinzo Abe has yet to move in to his official residence, prompting suggestions that something is amiss. The building itself has gone through some disturbing events including a former prime minister's death in 1932 and the deaths of several officials during an attempted military coup. Tales of a haunting have persisted for several years.

To help stem the rumors, the government has made a formal statement denying any knowledge of paranormal occurrences at the property. Democratic party rival Ken Kagaya had explicitly asked if ghosts where the reason Shinzo had yet to move in, to which the cabinet responded by claiming to be "unaware" of any such rumors.

"The Japanese government has issued a formal statement denying knowledge of rumors that the prime minister's official residence is haunted by ghosts."

Aw so sweet! Yes, but can the rabbit stay attached and at your house? I don't do well with anything except dogs and I just had one pass so I'm not ready for a new dog yet. I'll give you candy: and some sort of gerbil/mouse thing having its tea:
