Watch your Oxford comma!

Finally, Naruhito sees that there are countries where the population still exists sans face masks-amazing!

@ theResident, I totally agree with your comments be kind or you might get censored for off comments. I speaking from experience.

and @Yrral: People will generally leave a short message. Your anti-monarchy statements across every article are dull, repetitive and just show you have an awful lot of time on our hands to criticise something you clearly know little about.

The monarchy is strong in the UK for at least another two generations. Republican sentiment is very low, and has been for a number of years since the King rehabilitated his image post Diana.

If there are articles still on JT over the coming days then it will be because it IS relevant.

The emperor studied at Oxford University.

So? I know plenty of people who have studied at universities in Japan, and none of them can speak Japanese very well. He didn’t get into Oxford on merit for goodness sake!

Let's see if the message from the imperial couple sinks in back home. Stop wearing restrictive masks.

And much was made by the Japanese media that they chose not to wear facemasks... SMH

She is fluent in English, but he isn't. Looks like he is asking her what to write.

-20 ( +1 / -21 )

"Should I write in Kanji or Romaji?"

"Hun - nine down, six letters, starts with "G"..."

You do not get to write, anything,just sign your name
