Jesus in Japan

Junichiro Sawaguchi claims to be a descendant of Jesus. Yes, that Jesus.

"I'm not really planning anything at all for the 25th as it doesn't really matter to us," said 52-year-old Mr Sawaguchi. "I know I am descended from Jesus but as a Buddhist it's just not all that important."

Married with a son and daughter, Mr Sawaguchi may display the same degree of religious flexibility that is common in Japan, but his beliefs are firm. Jesus is buried in the neighbouring field, along with his brother Isukiri, and nearby are the scattered remains of [a] pyramid that was larger than those in Egypt but toppled in an earthquake in 1857.

As evidence of his holy ancestry, Mr. Sawaguchi asserts that his grandfather was tall and thin and had blue eyes. Because, as we all know, Jesus had blue eyes.
