Japan PM Office's New Website Looks Similar to White House's

Politics

Tokyo, March 11 (Jiji Press)--The new website of the Japanese prime minister's office, which has become less wordy with more pictures after a recent major change in design, resembles the site of the White House, observers say.

The prime minister's office implemented the change on March 2, making the Japanese version of the website easier to use for smartphone users.

For the renewal, the office took into consideration the websites of foreign governments.

The office put emphasis on visual appearance, an official said, adding that no major change in content was made.

The top page with an image of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is very similar in structure to that of the White House's website, which features an image of U.S. President Donald Trump.
