Good for them.

Compare this to the 'other' country who continues to act like spoiled, petulant children.

This quote from the article, "Beijing believes that "China's sentiment toward Japan has improved, but Japan's toward China has not after having deteriorated" over wartime history and territorial disputes,"

would indicate that there is only one side to this story, China's.

US is sending Mike Pence to this ceremony so US & China VPs could meet in Japan. Maybe a good idea to develop VP level communication channel come in handy just in case.

Why just the veeps? The emperor is the head of state - that should get the respective head of state (president, king). While veeps can go in their place, a change of a monarchal head of state is pretty important.

Actually I thought only Monarchs/Royalty attended these kind of things. Like, who is representing Queen Elizabeth? Or is she up for the trip? The previous Emperor Akihito attended Q.Elizabeth's ascension when he was a Crown Prince. With these symbolic leaders, I think sending VP level representatives is correct.

Wait, akihito attended Elizabeth's ascension (Or cronation)? That was 1952. He was 18. I may not have read that right as I'm tired.

By protocol, Wang is the highest official for the event. He represents 1.6 billion people, 8000 years civilization, and 3000 years friendship.
