Something worth noting. The Emperor must go through very rigorous and physically demanding Shinto prayer and rituals for a good harvest and for protection of the people that begin in Autumn and continue for months until the New Year, all overseen by the Imperial Household Agency. Being Japanese, the Emperor must feel it inappropriate for his son to carry out those duties in place of him as a sesshou (regent) even though he himself still retains the title of Emperor. The last Emperor to abdicate was in 1840, really not that long ago in the grand scheme of history. The ridiculous and unsustainable current system needs to change.
