This he says was only realized moments later when he went for an ex-ray.

“When I was going to Japan, while in a hurry, I strongly hit my right hand against the door of the car. The doctor applied some anti-inflammation gel when there was some swelling,” he explained.

“We did not concentrate on it because it did not hurt but remained slightly discomforting. When later an x-ray was done, it was discovered that there was a small spiral fracture on the metacarpal bone of the right last finger (akahara) which is being managed conservatively.”

The President says the hand doesn’t hurt except when direct pressure is applied on it.

“That is why I use the left hand to greet. Managing conservatively means using a bandage for two weeks,” he said.
