Japan's emperor in historic speech: 'Never give up hope'

Quote
"I truly hope the victims of the disaster never give up hope, take care of themselves, and live strong for tomorrow," said the dignified and understated Emperor Akihito, in a calm and poignant oration delivered from the Imperial Palace.
The 77-year-old ceremonial but deeply revered chief of state underlined Prime Minister Naoto Kan's earlier assertion that Japan is going through its worst crisis since World War II. It is not known whether he will visit survivors of the disaster, as he did in 1995 after the deadly quake in Kobe.

Apparently it's really rare that the emperor speaks to the Japanese nation in public, that he's doing so now is telling if you ask me! thumbsup

Took the Emperor long enough to speak out to his people 5 days later, IMO it's a little late for me to be giving this Emperor any sort of praise  thumbsdown

That it was televised is certainly something and I am sure the IHA decided to move the Imperial Family into a safe place during the tsunami and earthquake.

Move Over Kate, Princess Masako Is Back
http://blogs.wsj.com/japanrealtime/2011/06/06/move-over-kate-princess-masako-is-back/?mod=google_news_blog
Quote
These days, most of the world’s attention is focused on a new princess in the U.K., but Japan was reminded this weeked of its own princess, who was out of the public eye for years.
Crown Princess Masako greeted evacuees in Miyagi prefecture in Japan on Saturday.Crown Princess Masako appeared accompanying her husband, Crown Prince Naruhito, to visit quake-ravaged communities in Miyagi prefecture in northern Japan. She has been increasingly in public eye over the past few months. The royal couple met with evacuees from areas near the Fukushima nuclear plants in Tokyo and Tokyo’s neighboring prefecture Saitama in April and May.
On Saturday, the couple bowed in the direction of a community that had once existed but was wiped out and turned into rubble after the March 11 earth quake and tsunami. Then, the couple visited temporary shelters in Yamamotocho town, where nearly 700 people died after the disaster.

Well, let's see, I know nothing about her other than the photo, but she is 1. dressed appropriately, 2. seems genuinely warm and caring, 3. has a real purpose for her presence, and 4. knows what to say and how to say it.  Brought tears to my eyes.  Plus, she seems beautiful inside and out.

It's a huge technical error, I'm sure, that Wasty's name is even in the same article with a woman of this substance.

With much respect...thank you, Japan:

Quote
In 1912, the people of Japan sent 3,020 cherry trees to the United States as a gift of friendship. First Lady Taft and the Viscountess Chinda, wife of the Japanese Ambassador, planted the first two cherry trees on the northern bank of the Tidal Basin. These two original trees are still standing today near the John Paul Jones statue at the south end of 17th Street. Workmen planted the remainder of the trees around the Tidal Basin and East Potomac Park.

The Emperor and Empress of Japan attended the national memorial service for the victims of the March 11, 2011, earthquake and tsunami in Tokyo, Sunday.

Through silence and prayers, people across Japan on Sunday remembered the massive disaster that struck the nation one year ago, killing just over 19,000 people and unleashing the world's worst nuclear crisis in a quarter century.

Crown Prince Naruhito plays Viola while his daughter Aiko plays the Cello at a schools festival on Apr. 15, 2012.
Thinking that Queen Elizabeth even rejected the orders of Annie Leibowitz at a photoshooting and seein' the Crown Prince and his daughter taking directions from a conductor, the Japanese Royal Family becomes very sympathetic for me.
In comparison I fear at least the IQ would lack for the Windsors  to grap a fiddle!

Sorry, but under the current situation it's absolutely impossible.
The Japanese monarchy, though transformed by the genious Mc Arthur into a modern constitutive one (by constituion the Tenno is not even the head of the state!!), is still deepened into tradition.
And -no joke- many stoggy conservatives still argue, loosing the male hereditary line would mean loosing the divine "Y" chromosome of the first legendary Tenno Jimmnu given by the sun GODDESS (!!) Amaterasu.
Secondly what would be, if Aiko would fall into love may say to a European man. It might be possible the next Tenno could have red hair and green eyes like e.g. Prince Harry.  Shocked

Say what you want but in general the only line you can be sure of is the maternal one, they usually know the womb you come from
Until five decades ago you couldn't be sure of the father really (in some cases it was hope and pray for the best really) it's a bit harder to fake giving birth!
Yeah changelings happened but not as often as cuckoo's! Cool

I find the idea of paternal lines a bit....unsure.
and I don't understand why our civilisation is so fixed on it dontknow

http://www.examiner.com/article/japanese-government-recommends-changes-for-imperial-female-members

Quote
On Friday the Japanese government released their recommendation to allow female members to maintain their Imperial status after marriage. The family is facing an impending crisis as there are so many unmarried females that should rules not be changed, there will be essentially three males to take on the royal duties. The government’s recommendations, which are now open for public comment, proposed that female members of the Imperial family can establish their own Imperial branches after marriage to commoners. Another proposal also options whereby Imperial status would be given and not given to the husband and children of a princess who establishes her own Imperial branch.
