Japanese "moe" diplomats
Hilarious but not too surprising to me.
TOKYO (Reuters) - Ever seen an ambassador dressed from head to foot in pastel frills? How about a diplomatic envoy in a mini-skirted school uniform?
In a bid to raise its international profile, Tokyo has appointed three young women as cultural envoys because they represent Japan's long-running craze for all things cute.

With current economic downturn, Japan tries to appeal to the world with ready made "moe" image. How logical.
