Norihiro Uehata used to weigh 115kg (roughly 253lbs) however has steadily been shedding pounds over the previous few years. Consequently, he now seems to be a lot completely different now than he did again then. The truth is, he seems to be extra like an idol wearing a uniform for a music video than a metropolis councilor!
Though his bodily transformation isn’t any secret to the Japanese public, it was information to the airport worker in Taiwan who not too long ago inspected Uehata’s passport. Since Uehata’s passport picture has not but been up to date to match his look, the worker apparently had bother believing Passport Uehata and In-Individual Uehata had been the identical man.
To persuade the worker, Uehata confirmed him earlier than and after pictures on Instagram. Fortunately, this was all of the proof Uehata wanted to verify his identification and enter Taiwan with out points.

Good!! That’s what the examiner informed me, and I used to be given permission to enter the nation.
