What more is there to discuss exactly? The people have made it clear: they mostly don't mind a female monarch.
Surely it is a choice for the imperial household themselves?
Imperial family: “ we would welcome a female head, after all the family began with a woman!”
Citizens: “we would love a female heir, they are so kind and demure”
LDP: “pft if a woman is the figurehead we would have to bow to her, screw that”
