日本を取り戻す - Take back Japan.

Here's another Liberal Democrat poster. This one features the new/old Prime Minister Shinzo Abe (top). A belligerent, right-winger and prone to historical revisionism, for all his tough talk, the last time he was Prime Minister he didn't quite last a year before quitting on the grounds of "ill-health".

The slogan reads 日本を取り戻す - Nihon wo torimodosu - "take back Japan".
