Statements on the Emperor

Japan's FM has made some declarations about the Emperor that maight be qualified as polemic by the most conservative and certainly will have a part in the news for the next days.

As tells Asia Now: Japan emperor should be able share his thoughts, says FM

That is an interesting development. Reading prepared statements might be viewed as artificial and insincere by some Japanese. However, I do not think that Emperor Akihito's statements will differ much from those preprepared by the IHA even he speaks his mind.

I think the Emperor should be above politics. Queen Elizabeth reads pre-prepared speeches as well for the very reason.
If they want the Emperor’s true opinion, they can seek it privately, perhaps arrange weekly or monthly meetings to discuss important issues with him.
