Thanks for an update on Empress Michiko's activities! Playing tennis herself, Empress Michiko enjoyed undertaking this engagement.

Really? I had no idea the Empress played tennis. That's interesting. Does she still play?

She still does (and so does the Emperor and their children), although she injured her knee recently. In fact, rchat, she met the Emperor at a double tennis match in a summer vacation, and her team won... later on, they began dating and the rest is history!

Couple of articles about the visit of the Austrian president:

Official announcement from the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, dated 25 August:

MOFA: Visit to Japan of His Excellency Dr. Heinz Fischer, Federal President of the Republic of Austria and Mrs. Margit Fischer

Article in the Austrian Times:

Fischer begins Japan visit – General News – Austrian Times

According to the above, the visit coincides with the Year of Japan in Austria:

"The president’s office added that the visit would be the high point of the Year of Japan in Austria commemorating the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries 140 years ago.

Fischer and his delegation will be received by Emperor Akihito tomorrow."

Thanks for answering Marquesa. I didn't realize that's how they met. That's sweet. It's great that they stay physically active, and probably why they continue to stay slim.

Emperor Akihito views a Coelacanth at a laboratory at the Tokyo Institute of Technology in Yokohama on Oct. 5, 2009, prior to its dissection. The emperor is a member of the Ichthyological Society of Japan and is known for his study of goby.
