I strongly feel the importance of repeatedly holding dialogue to overcome differences in stances and working together with others in the international community.

Vote for the emperor as next prime minister.

Empress Masako, Emperor Maruhito and, Princess Aiko with a lock of her black hair cascading down the left side of her face, look a very happy family. With readers of Japan Today, I wish Japan's Emperor, Empress and Princess a Very Happy New Year, 2023.

Oh, and why not open the Crown to women? We are not inferior to men!

In the UK edition of the Daily Mail it's the same picture but with a rabbit sculpture instead of the flowers, maybe its to inform us westerners that its the year of the rabbit.
