Good luck to Akihito. He isn't as robust as QE2 it seems...

Hope they caught it in time. I'm sure he has the best doctors in Japan.

I hope he gets the treatment he needs and has a lot of life left to live.

"the 77-year-old emperor engaged in heav exercise during a regular checkup"

I'll bet that was walking up and down that step for 3 minutes just before they take your EKG.

I met him back in '86, nice bloke. People don't live forever and I bet he hasn't had any regular exercise in 25 years.

I hope his ticker is working well or this could be near the end of the Heisei period. If it happens what would they call the next period when Naruhito takes over? The Naruhodo jidai?
