School essays reveal emperor as a boy

12/05/2005
By NOBUYUKI WATANABE The Asahi Shimbun

A newly discovered collection of papers gives insights into the thoughts of Emperor Akihito as a schoolboy during World War II.
While he was still in elementary school, Emperor Akihito wrote that he wanted to grow up to be a person who "bears Japan on my shoulders," a composition kept by his teacher shows. A copy of the essay was found among four cardboard boxes of material that once belonged to Koichi Suzuki (1900-1989), a Japanese history teacher at Gakushuin Primary School, where the emperor was a pupil.......

Court: Spending for coronation justified

The Supreme Court on Thursday ruled that the roughly 50 million yen spent by the Tokyo metropolitan government on traditional ceremonies linked to Emperor Akihito's coronation in 1990 was justified.
