Makoto Hirayama
Makoto Hirayama (平山 誠, Hirayama Makoto, born 12 May 1952 – 27 February 2018) is a Japanese politician. He served in the House of Councillors in the Diet (national legislature) from 2009 until 2013. Hirayama contested the 2007 House of Councillors election as a member of New Party Nippon but failed to win a seat, finishing third in the party's national proportional representation block behind Yasuo Tanaka, the party's only successful candidate, and Yoshifu Arita. In August 2009 Tanaka nominated as a candidate for the Hyogo No.8 District of the House of Representatives in the 2009 general election. Tanaka's nomination meant he automatically forfeited his House of Councillors seat. On 22 August the House committee determined that Arita was his replacement, but he too declined the House of Councillors seat on the basis of wanting to contest the House of Representatives election
