Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko were at Hayama Villa on February 7, 2013 in Hayama, Kanagawa, Japan.
They did some coast walking before stopping by to speak to crowds of locals who had gathered to see Their Majesties.

Emperor steadily recuperating year after operation
Quote:

[...] A checkup in late January showed the Emperor was largely in good health, [...] It found only a small amount of fluid in his chest and no major problems with the functioning of his heart.

The Emperor does not have an erratic pulse now and is expected to stay in good condition for the next 10 years, as he has had no problems in the year after the operation, Atsushi Amano of Juntendo University Hospital, who led the bypass operation, said during a recent interview. [...]

What lovely pictures and video, Dman, and ChiaraC. They look to have a great time together, and they dance very well.

Well, they seem to have made special preparations for this moment of dancing together in public for the first time after 20 years ;):
