It doesn't take a rocket surgeon to know it 

Rocket scientist perhaps you meant to say

Clueless.

It's just a sign that Japan is going downhill like Western Civilization.

Is this also something you can do in Japan?

The owner of the property is left with the cost of the graffiti removal. Unless the culprit is caught.

Even on public property?

I strongly dislike the presence of graffiti on any historical monument, building, temple, or shrine.

I strongly dislike graffiti anywhere, and I am proud to say I have helped keep our town graffiti-free for a few years.

If you notify the local council of graffiti, it is usually removed the next day.

Royal families include kings and queens, imperial families include emperors and empresses, and papal families include popes.

My guess is a Chinese tourist. Probably young Chinese tourists who thought it would be cool while visiting Japan! It is not the first time this has happened in Japan and not the first country that has been vandalized by Chinese tourists!

I understand your frustration, I don't like it one bit either, but let's not jump to conclusions about the individual's identity or nationality, as it only serves to stoke racism.

Vandalism can be a thoughtless act committed by anyone, regardless of their background. It's important to focus on the behaviour itself rather than making assumptions about the person responsible.

Nothing...

My personal opinion here, the current Emperor and his father have done a wonderful job of getting closer to the people and working to improve the overall image of the royal family.

That alone, gives me pause to consider that these two Emperor's are deserving of some respect.

What have they done that is deserving of respect?

Graffiti and vandalism should equal 20 years in jail. It’s completely unacceptable

It's pretty wild that there is no CCTV, and that it is open to the public 24/7. It doesn't take a rocket surgeon to know it should be gated, closed at night, and under video surveillance.

The failure and negligence to provide security at the Mausoleum of the Meiji Emperor is despicable.

If you don't have these things guarded, you are asking for trouble.

Despicable behaviour. Karma is surely coming after anyone who desecrates a mausoleum.

Have security guards patrol the mausoleum 24/7 - and CCTV everywhere.

There is scum that walks this planet that thinks the rest of the world wants to look at their childish scribble. Worse are the pond scum who travel to do this. This article just gave the pathetic losers who did this the attention they crave, with little else to occupy their microscopic brains.
