Japan has a new Emperor

Japan’s new Emperor Naruhito assumed the throne yesterday after his Father, Akihito, abdicated the previous day.
Akihito’s abdication was the first in 200 years.

Akihito was a good one. Hope his son carries the torch.


He was also the first Emperor to not be considered a god. Officially that is. Apparently some older Japanese didn’t get the memo.

Now I would like to see Charles abdicate his position as Prince of Wales before his mother dies.
