Every time I see pictures of the Empress, she always looks so very sad. It's like her spirit has been broken and she just follows along doing what has to be done......what a very sad life she must lead regardless of title or money.

I don't think the Empress is sad, she is really accomplished woman, and Japanese women of her age seem to have a different view of life. They seem to bear something secret in their appearance.

In late May the Emperor and Empress were at Oyama Station. A high school girl took a photo and posted it on Twitter. It caused a ripple of discussion about the Imperial Family and the media, and the appropriateness of posting private photos online. I like the theory that the negative reaction from some quarters was just sour grapes, because their photographer's failed to get a picture half as good as the young lady and her phone. Here's an interesting article on this tempest in a teapot, and the charming photo in question:
