Thanks for the photos!
It is great that Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko have got a full agenda and undertake engagements on a regular basis. Hopefully the Japanese government will be able to find a resolution to economic woes.

I know that the Emperor and Empress are not getting any younger and have had a tough schedule in the past, but it always good to see them out and about and I am always appreciative of people posting updates and images on their current events.
It is not always easy to find clear images of them.

And on August 25 they viewed artworks by Kiichiro Mizumura during their visit to the Kiichiro Mizumura Museum in Toumi. Kiichiro Mizumura, who lost both his arms in an accident as a child, paints with a brush in his mouth. The Emperor and Empress have purchased two of Mizumura's works in 1981 and have them displayed in the Imperial Palace.

the Imperial couple

It was a lovely picture. A picture of them playing tennis, doing something active than the usual pictures (no offense to anyone-i hope).
A couple of questions-- how did Akihito's interest in tennis begin, and does the whole family play (i.e. grandchildren, cousins, etc)?

Thank you for posting these pictures - it is so heartening to see the Emperor and Empress playing tennis and enjoying a sport they love - especially considering their age and the health issues they have suffered in recent years! It seems that they are both in much better health these days and I am glad for it.
