How tall would you say the man on the left is?
What about astronaut Kimiya Yui?
Can seem in 5ft 11 range, second chap maybe a bit smaller than the first, but still looks over 5ft 10 with Abe

Rob, how tall does Abe look here with Trump? Both are in golf outfits. I’d say he’s between 173 and 174 now.
Abe has announced his intention to resign—I’ll have to make a height chart of his potential successors!
if ground is equal, near 174cm. Grass possibly could give Abe an edge, it is very tricky to tell at times with golf courses.

5ft 8 5/8 is best guess for this current Prime Minister from Japan.

Rob, how tall does he look next to Trump here? I don’t think he’s much over 174.
At that moment I can see a 174cm for him.

@Rob can you put the source where Official Japan office lists him 1,75?
Link is broken
The dead link was to the page of Japan Governement profiles. I don't know if it's moved or not to a new one.

This is about right, there's even pictures of Abe appearing taller then Pence and it was the same amount of difference as Pence looking taller then Abe. I would guess between 5'8 3/4 and 5'9". Abe and Pence probably would be eye to eye in person or look like each other's height around different people.

Rob, is he above average for a Japanese man?
Becoming a leading figure in Japan puts him greatly above average.
As for his height, I think a 3-4cm taller than average.

hahahaha you're going to piss off a lot of 6ft dudes by putting 5ft11*31/32 as their height.
People actually do get annoyed at 1/8ths, so don't worry, that's the lowest I'd ever go.
said on 16/Jun/18
why not change it to 5'9 since its like a 0.1 difference loll?
To get as close to the 175cm metric as possible, the 7/8th is the best option for that 😉
Look out for 1/16ths in 2019! 😲
j/k, I'm going straight to 1/32ths 😱

He looks 174 cm max with Mike Pence and Emmanuel Macron. Is 5'8 5/8 acceptable Rob?

Rob, thank you for replying to my comment. Given your estimate, what might Abe's out-of-bed height be? 177 flat, maybe?
Yes, there is a chance he hit that mark.

Thanks for adding him, Rob. I would say that 175 is correct for his peak height, but at age 63, I would say he measures maybe closer to 174. It's hard to tell, maybe he's avoided losing much height. With Mike Pence, he can look a little under his listed mark.
I think 175cm is reasonable for him, I wouldn't say he looks much under it today, so any loss is small.
