Prime Minister Noboru Takeshita has rejected an appeal from President Reagan to announce a plan in early December to open Japan's rice market to imports, Chief Cabinet Secretary Keizo Obuchi revealed Thursday. Obuchi's comment came after Yasuo Goto, vice minister of agriculture, disclosed that Reagan had sent a personal letter to Takeshita on the ultra-sensitive issue Nov. 18. It was the first time an American president had directly urged Japan to open its rice market.
