Posted in: Imperial palace receives Fukushima rice at emperor's request See in context

This reminds me of US Pres. Jimmy Carter's visit to the nuclear power plant at Three Mile Island in the middle of its crisis in 1979. His presence reassured people and forestalled panic. Pres. Carter was a trained Navy nuclear engineer and fully understood that the actual risk was low; I'm sure the Emperor too has qualified staff telling him if it's safe or not. In any case, it's an admirable gesture. Bravo.
