Japan's newly-named Minister in charge of Measures for Declining Birthrate Masako Mori 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.
