Britain's Prime Minister Cameron walks on Ujibashi bridge as he visits Ise Grand Shrine in Ise ahead of the first session of the G7 summit meetings.By Kylie MacLellan ISE-SHIMA, Japan (Reuters) - In Japan, ostensibly to cover Prime Minister David Cameron's talks with other G7 leaders, travelling reporters had other things on their minds -- mainly next month's vote on whether Britain should ditch its membership of the European Union. With the June 23 vote looming, British "hacks" who had paid thousands of pounds to watch Cameron's every move in Japan and to try to quiz him and his team on "Brexit", were frustrated to be swept off to a Japanese dance and music show miles from the summit venue. "This time we've got neither, it's a bit of a joke." The situation was compounded by the fact that Cameron's media team, determined to concentrate on the official agenda of the Group of Seven talks, lacked his head of communications, who had been seconded to the "In" Europe campaign.

Atomic bomb survivor Kimie Miyamoto, 89, speaks during an interview at a retirement home she shares with other bomb victims, in Hiroshima, Japan, Saturday, May 28, 2016. A-bomb survivors feel both wonder and doubt after U.S. President Barack Obama visited the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park on Friday. "The world paid attention to what happened here, even if just for a while, because someone as important as him came to Hiroshima. So perhaps it could make things a little bit better," Miyamoto said of Obama's visit in an interview. "But you never really know if it will make a difference, because so much depends on what other countries are thinking as well." At right is another bomb survivor Michiko Kimoto, 87. (AP Photo/Shuji Kajiyama)HIROSHIMA, Japan (AP) — The survivors of the world's first atomic bomb attack are used to hearing grand vows to rid the world of nuclear weapons. They just don't usually come directly from the leader of the country that dropped the bomb on them in the first place.
