Abe Akie (安倍昭恵), the wife of Prime Minister Abe Shinzo, participated in the event of the "sign language dance" opened in Nakano Ward, Tokyo and also danced herself on March 8.

A sign language dance expresses lyrics by dancing and using sign language at the same time.

Abe appeared on the event sponsored by the non-profit organization "Sign Language Dance YOU & I", of which she is a member, and danced with a rich expression following the song of a singer Moriyama Naotaro (森山直太朗), etc.

Abe said to the Asahi Shimbun reporter, "What a sign language dance attracts is that regardless disability people can also enjoy it."
