Thanks for an update!
It is nice to learn about improvements in Emperor Akihito's health. Indeed, it is time for Japanese to have a bit easier life as the Japanese recession has been going quite a while.

The government has released a statement on the official duties of the Emperor not stipulated in the Constitution, in the wake of a controversy over whether the government was exploiting the Emperor for political purposes.
"There are various forms of official duties, and it is not realistic to set unified rules," the statement released on Thursday said. "The Cabinet is responsible for giving consideration so that they are carried out in line with the Constitution."
The move came following criticism by the opposition Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) over a hastily arranged meeting between the Emperor and Chinese Vice President Xi Jinpin in December last year.

Korean President Lee Myung-bak has invited the Japanese monarch to visit Korea in 2010 to mark the beginning of a new relationship between their countries. The Japanese emperor has yet to respond to the invitation.
"If the Japanese emperor is to visit our country, (he must be) firmly determined to repent for (Japan's) past (wrongdoings) and establish a new Korea-Japan relationship," Prime Minister Chung Un-chan said during an interpellation session at the National Assembly.

HM the Emperor Akihito had granted the audience to Romanian president Basescu on March 10th. The Emperor and the Empress gave a lunch in the Imperial palace also. The Romanian president hopes HM will visit Romania "in the period to come".

It has been a pleasure to see the Imperial couple undertaking various engagements. I have to say that Her Imperial Majesty looks frail though.

Thanks for the photos and the update on the activities of the Imperial couple!
It would be fair to say that Japan has always been at the forefront of science and technology. Hopefully some works presented will contribute to finding better ways to address woes of mankind (e.g., renewable sources of energy).
Empress Michiko's kimono is absolutely amazing.
