Japan's newly-named Administrative Reform Minister Tomomi Inada arrives at the prime minister's official residence before leaving for the attestation ceremony at the Imperial Palace in Tokyo Wednesday, Dec. 26, 2012. Old-guard veteran Shinzo Abe was voted back into office as prime minister Wednesday and immediately named a new Cabinet, ending three years of liberal administrations and restoring power to his conservative, pro-big-business party that has run Japan for most of the post-World War II era.
