Shinzo Abe’s legacy looms large for the new Japanese prime minister Fumio Kishida


Shinzo Abe led Japan for nine years, longer than all of the country’s other post-World War II leaders. Between 2012 and 2020, when Shinzo Abe resigned due to ill health and 2006 and 2007, he was prime minister. It’s not quite an Angela Merkel-length reign, but, much like the departing German chancellor, Abe left a significant legacy on his country and international relations.
