Emperor Akihito sees reign end without ever having a war

When he abdicates April 30, Japan’s Emperor Akihito will become the first emperor in the country’s modern history to see his era end without ever having a war. Throughout his reign, which began in January 1989 after his father’s death, Akihito has enjoyed widespread respect as a politically neutral figurehead. Japan’s next emperor, Crown Prince Naruhito, ascends the throne on May 1.

I love the links on this. Two talking about the emperor and then poof! Out comes bbc with a fresh set of purple highlights saying “why can this woman be emperor?” while belching Starbucks.

I would be genuinely amused if Japan suddenly captured the Spratly islands just to keep it real with history.
