I'm sorry to hear that the Empress isn't well. Fortunately, there's a lot that can be done for various heart problems. I wish her a good recovery.

A rough translation of the IHA notification:

The Empress has had symptoms of chest pain since around the end of June, which have gradually become increasing in frequency, has now received a 24-hour electrocardiogram ( Holter ECG ) test on July 24. As a result of the findings, myocardial ischemia is suspected and it has been decided to have a coronary artery CT examination at University of Tokyo Hospital on August 9.

Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi and his wife had an audience with Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko at the Imperial Palace on August 3.

As to the recent news about Empress Michiko it's good to see her there as well!

There are worries about the Empress health. It could be that she suffers from a heart disaese.

Empress has myocardial ischemia, scan shows ? Japan Today: Japan News and Discussion

Japan’s Empress Michiko diagnosed with heart trouble
Quote:
Last Sunday, the 80-year-old Empress was diagnosed with myocardial ischemia, a condition common in the elderly or those under significant stress. Since late June, the Empress has experienced chest pains that have increased over time. The pains grew in frequency, from a few times per week to occurring several times each day. This heart condition occurs when heart vessels are temporarily blocked. If not treated, the patient can suffer a heart attack. Those who receive this diagnosis are advised to refrain from activities that can raise their heart rates and stress levels.

An electrocardiogram performed last month on the elderly Empress revealed evidence of possible heart disease. Doctors decided on a more thorough examination and tests conducted. At the University of Tokyo Hospital, she underwent a coronary computed tomography scan. The results found she was suffering from inadequate blood flow to parts of her heart muscle through the coronary arteries. The scan showed narrowing of two of the three coronary arteries. However, officials say these results are unrelated to her chest pains.

Her condition isn’t severe enough to warrant surgery. If her symptoms worsen, she will be given medication. In 2011, the Emperor was experiencing similar symptoms. The following year, bypass surgery was performed after his diagnosis of angina.
And her she is today with Emperor Akihito, in her first public appearance since the heart scare.

She looks great, as always.

I hope the empress is feeling better now. I feel the same way about this elderly couple as I do about Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh, in that I hope they have some very firm doctors behind the scenes who will insist on rest if it's truly needed!
