Excellent news! The enthronemement will boost tourism by hundred of thousands. Most foreign visitors have no experience of Monarchy. Win-win!

This is getting to be so excessive, it's almost becoming surreal.

In a world where UNIQLO has become a kind of universal fashion norm -

in terms of style and affordability -

this ongoing ceremonial fawning around regal ascendency

is out-of-tune with the poster-modern age.

JAPAN has been known for fashion.

This is good news and the world is watching.

@ Maria .... '.... and the world is watching.'

NOT!

Royalty - in any country, particularly conservative Japan - is not known for avant garde fashion.

Besides, the 'enthronement' is not a Paris-Fashion-Show Catwalk

What we will see ad nauseum ( if anyone care to look) is ongoing morphing of fashion a la a 1950's debutante's ball, with decadently expensive silks, embroidered bodices etc

The HIP HOP culture of the west is disinterested.

The traumatized oppressed people groups around the world do not have a clue.

Japanese workers struggling to live as they are digging themselves out of the effectso 2 major typhoons can not relate to such extravagance.

And the rest of us middle class - YAAAAAAAWNNNNNNN
