his\\ promotion\\ of\\ it\\ to\\ Japanese\\ citizens\\ through\\ the\\ mass\\ media.\\ However,\\ this\\ paper\\ proposes\\ that\\ Japanese\\ politics\\ lacks\\ structure\\ and,\\ therefore,\\ Prime\\ Minister\\ Koizumi\\ should\\ instead\\ be\\ advocating\\ structural\\ construction,\\ or\\ kōzō\\ kōchiku.\r\nThe\\ current\\ study\\ illustrates\\ this\\ argument\\ by\\ citing\\ two\\ examples.\\ The\\ first\\ is\\ a\\ problem\\ in\\ which\\ two\\ Japanese\\ Non-Governmental\\ Organizations\\ were\\ prohibited\\ by\\ the\\ Ministry\\ of\\ Foreign\\ Affairs\\ in\\ 2001\\ from\\ attending\\ a\\ conference\\ on\\ Afghan\\ reconstruction.\\ The\\ second\\ is\\ regarding\\ the\\ jimujikan\\ kaigi,\\ or\\ the\\ meeting\\ of\\ the\\ permanent\\ secretaries\\ of\\ the\\ various\\ ministries\\ in\\ the\\ Japanese\\ governmental\\ bureaucracy.\r\nIn\\ addition,\\ the\\ question\\ of\\ what\\ cultivated\\ Koizumi's\\ image\\ as\\ a\\ promoter\\ of\\ kōzō\\ kaikaku\\ arises.\\ Two\\ events\\ were\\ responsible\\ for\\ this\\ image.\\ The\\ first\\ event\\ was\\ the\\ decision\\ not\\ to\\ appeal\\ the\\ Kumamoto\\ District\\ Court\\ ruling\\ for\\ the\\ plaintiffs\\ in\\ the\\ Hansen's\\ disease\\ case\\ in\\ 2001.\\ The\\ second\\ was\\ Koizumi's\\ electrifying\\ visit\\ to\\ North\\ Korea\\ in\\ 2002.\\ After\\ these\\ two\\ events,\\ the\\ approval\\ ratings\\ for\\ Koizumi's\\ cabinet\\ rose\\ and\\ his\\ government\\ was\\ able\\ to\\ perform\\ well\\ in\\ subsequent\\ elections.
