Japan PM voices deep regret over WWII suffering

Quote:
Prime Minister Taro Aso joined some 4,800 bereaved families to pay respect to 3.1 million Japanese war dead — 2.3 million soldiers and 800,000 civilians — at the Nihon Budokan hall in Tokyo. Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko also attended the ceremony, leading a one-minute silence at noon.

Emperor Akihito said he hoped Japan would never again wage a war.
"I mourn for those who died in the war and pray for world peace and further development of Japan," the 75-year-old emperor said in a speech.

Prime Minister Aso's statement about Japan's aggression toward Asian nations is truly remarkable. I sincerely hope that Japan's citizens are aware of the history preceding and including WWII.

Did they ever do anything like this with Aiko? Is the little prince being put forward as an heir? Or am I reading too much into this.

I generally agree that it would be nice if Aiko, and especially Mako and Kako spend more time with the Emperor and Empress.
However, it may well be that Their Majesties' other grandchildren were busy during this boat trip: don't forget that the school year has already started.

Yes, that's true. I just have a suspicious mind.

Japanese Emperor Akihito declares the opening of the new session at the national Diet in Tokyo on September 18, 2009. Japan's new government led by Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama on September 18 began unwinding policies of the conservatives they ousted -- axing a mega-dam, pledging to reverse some market reforms and probing secret Cold War US defence pacts

Well, let's hope this new Cabinet can bring large prosperity to Japan and open a new era for the country, as its leaders have assured it will...
