Article from HELLO
Japan's Emperor Akihito has always been attentive to his country's future, so it was no surprise to see him taking a keen interest in some of the nation's younger citizens on Monday afternoon..............Empress Michiko, his wife of 47 years, sat at his side as he waved playfully to the youngsters and chatted with those who came over to investigate their VIP guests. One little girl even invited the head-of-state to join in their fun by presenting him with one of her toys.....................

In this photo released by Imperial Household Agency of Japan, Empress Michiko feeds mulberry leaves to silkworms with the help of sericulture center chief Yoshisuke Sato at the facility in the Imperial Palace in Tokyo Wednesday, May 10, 2006. Michiko symbolically raises silkworms as part of the Japanese tradition and some of the silk produced in the palace is used for a revival of old textile material of historical value kept by the imperial family at Shosoin Repository in Nara, western Japan.

Empress Michiko's poems published in France
...........................The poems were translated into French by Tadao Takemoto, a professor emeritus at the University of Tsukuba and scholar on the late French novelist Andre Malraux.
The collection will have an initial print run of 1,000. On Wednesday, a ceremony commemorating the publication was held at the official residence of the Japanese ambassador in Paris. Takemoto, the translator who currently lives in the French capital, said at the ceremony, "I was touched by the requiem Empress Michiko read upon visiting a battle site and wanted to convey it to the French people."
