So how are the Japanese citizens celebrating the Obama victory?
Well there is a town in the Fukui prefecture called Obama (小浜) and they seem to be having a whale of a time - just because Obama shares the same name....
Some of the celebrations taking place in Obama city below.




Japan Probe has another CNN report.

How about the non American citizens around the world - would you be celebrating?
