If they don't kill the current emperor first with all these meetings with foreign "dignitaries". The poor guy had to meet Trump AND Duterte in less than a month apart. That would have killed me.

Mako is sooo beautiful..

I remember when Aki and Kiko got married, eraly 90s or so. I think they first lived in a University 宿舎 first. I wonder if it had running hot water like mine didn't.

The place in the photo - their current household in Akasaka - looks like it has.

A photo that oozes joy and happiness.

A lot of black and brown hair dye went into that photo. Just saying. The British royal family embrace their natural hair - whether it be colour and baldness.

Royal families are so last century. Surely democracies should elect their head of state ?

Nice staged photo. Everyone pauses to enjoy the moment with their hands perfectly positioned in waiting. So ridiculous.

The government should just let the man retire while he still has time to enjoy it. I think the date has been pushed into 2019 instead of the original 2018.
