Will you give xi Jinping a page in the future Rob?

I'd say he's in the 5'10 range, maybe 5'10.5?

Rob, how about the full 5’9”, to get rid of the 7/8ths?

Weak 5'10.5 fair for Xi Jinping?
Is about 1.5 taller than Abe
Editor Rob
5ft 10.5 could be a fair listing for Xi

Yesterday Shinzo would be 68th birthday. I do not rule out that it may have lost some height at the end of its life and was closer to 5ft 8.5 in 2022 but for his peak height I can see arguments in favor of a 5ft 9-9.25 range. In 2007, alongside Will Smith, he looked like he had at least a full 5ft 9: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
I found one interesting photo of Shinzo with Putin from 2006: Click Here
Shinzo was 52 at the time and probably hasn't lost any height yet though Putin may have been 5ft 6.75 in his prime. And in 2007, Abe looked less than three inches shorter than Tony Blair: Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here Click Here
Sure Blair could have been a full 6 feet, I might believe 183cm for Blair and 176cm for Abe. Maybe there are not enough arguments for adding Xi Jinping to Celebheights but Recep Tayyip Erdogan is a different discussion since Shinzo and Benjamin Netanyahu are here, Erdogan too should have his website in my opinion. These are the next photos of Erdogan alongside Blair from 2002: Click Here Click Here
I hope Rob you will add Erdogan to Celebheights someday. But back to Shinzo... Can you see him in the 5ft 9-9.25 range?
Editor Rob
Of course a full 5ft 9 in his prime is arguable.

Never even realized he had a page

Yes, I was just talking about him 3 days ago here on the site. It is tragic.

Rest in peace Shinzo Abe. 😔

RIP Shinzo, you will be missed. Terrible that this has happened in a peaceful country
Arch Stanton said on 8/Jul/22
RIP indeed, horrible seeing clips of people just before they die. I wouldn't have guessed under 5 ft 9 with Trump.

Very sad to hear this, i have great respect for him.
Linke said on 8/Jul/22
Terrible news regarding his death. Will always be remembered as a great leader.

Maybe the 171 range isn't that bad a figure.

that's reasonable when he stands with Boris Johnson, which is a strong 5'9 for me, but sometimes it's a bit too low, because there's a figure who stands at about 5'9,5 and i believe it cause there's a photograph of him with my family, and they're about 5'9-5'10 guys, and this figure held up pretty well, even edging some of them. and here's the figure with Joko (Click Here) is there any chance of him being 5'8, Rob? my 5'7 father also met him and he said he believe if Joko's over 5'7
Editor Rob
Joko could look 5ft 8 with Boris

Rob, what do you think about Indonesian President, Joko Widodo? he was reported as 175 cm, but his driving license billed him as 171 cm and here's him with Shinzo Abe and Xi Jinping

Do you think Jokowi are closer to 175 cm or 171 cm based on the pics Rob?

Anyways, 175 for peak Shinzo, currently could be just scraping it, more like 174 cm man
Editor Rob
Maybe the 171 range isn't that bad a figure.

How tall would you say the man on the left is?

What about astronaut Kimiya Yui?

Editor Rob
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!

Editor Rob
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.
Chinese Guy said on 31/May/20
Xi Jinping is around 5ft 9
Black said on 24/Feb/20
174.6 ok
MrFish said on 24/Nov/19
Rob, how tall does he look next to Trump here? I don’t think he’s much over 174.
Click Here
Editor Rob
At that moment I can see a 174cm for him.
KingSerph said on 6/Aug/19
Rob any estimates on chinese president xi jinping?
Editor Rob
He can seem close to 5ft 11
Johnson said on 27/Apr/19
@Rob can you put the source where Official Japan office lists him 1,75?

Link is broken
Editor Rob
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.
James694 said on 12/Dec/18
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.
Arthur! said on 6/Sep/18
Rob, is he above average for a Japanese man?
Editor Rob
Becoming a leading figure in Japan puts him greatly above average.

As for his height, I think a 3-4cm taller than average.
mike dent said on 18/Jun/18
hahahaha you're going to piss off a lot of 6ft dudes by putting 5ft11*31/32 as their height.
Editor Rob
People actually do get annoyed at 1/8ths, so don't worry, that's the lowest I'd ever go.
mike dent said on 16/Jun/18
why not change it to 5'9 since its like a 0.1 difference loll?
Editor Rob
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 😱
Jason9009 said on 15/Jun/18
He looks 174 cm max with Mike Pence and Emmanuel Macron. Is 5'8 5/8 acceptable Rob?
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 12/Jun/18
175cm was legit looks it with 6'0 singapore prime minister Lee Hsien Loong

MrFish said on 10/Jun/18
Rob, thank you for replying to my comment. Given your estimate, what might Abe's out-of-bed height be? 177 flat, maybe?
Editor Rob
Yes, there is a chance he hit that mark.
MrFish said on 9/Jun/18
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.
Editor Rob
I think 175cm is reasonable for him, I wouldn't say he looks much under it today, so any loss is small.
