Japan emperor visits Korean war memorial on Saipan

By Linda Sieg 15 minutes ago

SAIPAN (Reuters) - In a gesture of reconciliation, Japanese Emperor Akihito made a surprise visit on Tuesday to a Korean war dead memorial during a pilgrimage to the island of Saipan where a decisive World War II battle was fought.


Akihito's journey, his first trip outside Japan to honor war dead, coincides with a chill in Japan's ties with China and South Korea, still tormented by the wartime past 60 years later....

Thanks for all these lovely photos. I especially like the ones on the beach. It's a nice change to see them in less formal attire. :)

Emperor prays for peace - and for the victims of Suicide Cliff
By Richard Lloyd Parry

When Tazu Sato was growing up in the 1940s on the remote Pacific island of Saipan, every school day began with the same ritual. Standing in rows, facing north in the direction of the Imperial Palace in Tokyo, the pupils would bow deeply three times and shout aloud: “Tenno Heika Banzai!

The words mean, literally, “May His Majesty the Emperor live 10,000 years”, and they were heard repeatedly during the vicious three-week battle for Saipan in 1944. Japanese soldiers shouted them as they charged into combat, armed with daggers and sharpened bamboos in suicide raids.

Miss Sato herself heard a young soldier scream them as he joined hundreds of others in jumping to his death from Suicide Cliff. Last night Emperor Akihito — the son of the late Hirohito, in whose name so many people died — and Empress Michiko arrived in Saipan to pray for peace on a foreign battlefield for the first time....
