The Imperial couple occured to be football fans

Japan's surprise advance to the World Cup knockout stage has turned Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko into football fans who even woke before dawn to watch live TV coverage.The news emerged on Friday when the royal couple received Japan's coach Takeshi Okada, two senior players and the president of the Japan Football Association Motoaki Inukai at the Imperial Palace.
Coach Okada said that Empress Michiko, one year younger than the emperor at 75, told him that she got up to watch the Japan-Denmark game which started at 3:30 am Japan time.
"When she woke up so early in the morning, his majesty was also awake. They agreed that they would watch television together," Okada said. - AFP

And I'm glad that Japan had reached the site it did at the World Cup. It was the first time in history of World Cup that Japan had reached that far...Congrats! I suppose that the IMperial Family must have been more than happy about their National Soccer Team. They were great.

Empress Michiko apparently has cough-variant asthma but will proceed with her official duties as scheduled while receiving medication, the Imperial Household Agency said September 9th 2010.
The agency said the Empress will be treated with medication for at least two to three months in order to prevent the ailment from developing into bronchial asthma. - Kyodo

Thanks for the update!
It is nice to see Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko undertaking the engagements. I am sure that people participating in the event were delighted to meet them. Empress Michiko looked impeccable as usual.
