Sun Myung Moon, the late founder of the Unification Church, said in a sermon in 2005 that hundreds of households of the religious group’s members helped elect former Japanese Foreign Minister Hirofumi Nakasone, the Mainichi Shimbun has learned.

“More than 300 households of Unification Church members participated in the election” to get Nakasone elected, Moon said during the address. The comments were confirmed following the Mainichi Shimbun’s translation of Moon’s Korean-language sermon records.

Nakasone, 77, a House of Councillors member of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party (LDP), is the eldest son of the late Yasuhiro Nakasone, who served as prime minister of Japan between 1982 and 1987. Hirofumi was first elected to the upper house in 1986, when his father was still in office as prime minister, and is currently in his seventh term, chairing the upper chamber’s Commission on the Constitution.

In the 615 volumes of sermon records, Yasuhiro Nakasone was mentioned most frequently among past Japanese prime ministers, as earlier reported by the Mainichi Shimbun. The latest discovery points to the possibility that the Unification Church, now formally known as the Family Federation for World Peace and Unification, had connections with the Nakasone family over two generations.

  1. The scrutiny concerning the political influence of the Unification Church continues in Japan. Japan has historically been a “cash cow” for the alleged “cult.”
