JAPAN GOLDEN WEEK: Greenery Day (Midori no Hi) - May 4th This day is a celebration of nature. Japan is supposed to become more in tune with nature and thank mother earth for her many blessings on this day. This holiday indirectly acknowledges Emperor Akihito because he has a great love of plants.
U.S. President Barack Obama will meet Emperor Akihito in Tokyo on April 24. Last time Obama met the emperor in Japan, in 2009, he shook hands and bowed, which caused an uproar in the U.S. Congress and media back home. Do you see anything wrong with him bowing to the emperor?

India, Japan walk Chinese tightrope By Narayani Basu, Asia Times (www.atimes.com) It’s been an interesting time recently on India’s foreign policy front vis-a-vis Japan. In December 2013, Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko arrived in the country on one of their rare overseas visits. They were followed by Japanese Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera, and now by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe – both in January. Abe’s visit is even more significant. He was the first Japanese prime minister to be the chief guest at India’s annual Republic Day parade and arrived as South Korean President Park Geun-Hye exited New Delhi. In all fairness, the closeness of India’s ties to Japan shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. The two countries have a historic precedent of friendship, right from Japan’s Meiji era, to the modern post Cold War period. Bilateral ties have been marked by economic cooperation, which in the late 1950s meant Japanese Official Development Assistance, as well as the acknowledgement that bot ...
One of the World's Best Hotels (07) In 1983, British magazine Executive Travel named Manila Hotel as one of the ten best in the world while Business Traveler, another British publication named it as one of the top ten business hotels in the world in 1986. In 1992, the Institutional Investor magazine called Manila Hotel as the world's best hotel and in 1993, the Vienna-based Treasury Publishing included it in the list of the most famous hotels in the world. Among the many political luminaries and celebrities who have stayed at the Manila Hotel were Ernest Hemingway, General Douglas McArthur, Marlon Brando, Helen Keller, John Wayne, Rocky Marciano, Richard Nixon, Robert Kennedy, Emperor Akihito, John Rockefeller, Dwight Eisenhower, Neil Armstrong, Anatoly Karpov, Bob Hope, Henry Kissinger, Princess Margaret, Brooke Shields, John Denver, Bon Jovi, Ben Kingsley, Richard Attenborough, Julio Iglesias, Richard Cheney, Garri Kasparov, Sultan Bolkiah, Rod Stewart, Nick Price, Greg Norman, Arnold Parmer, Bill Clint ...
A Sign of Strong Ties with Japan, Japan described the first ever reigning emperor Akihito’s India visit as ‘non-political’ and not aimed at ‘countering’ China. Being nominal head of state the emperor does not command any political power. But his visit to any country usually is very significant and symbolises peak level in bilateral relations. Nevertheless, officials deny the political significance of the visit but at least Indian media news and views could take note of undercurrents. Strangely, Japanese media focused more on US Vice-president Joe Biden’s politically very significant Tokyo visit. Departing from protocol PM Singh himself received the Emperor and his delegation at the airport. On the recommendation of Japanese PM Shinzo Abe & his cabinet Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko visited India to boost all-round bilateral ties besides improving trade, nuclear and defence relations. India and Japan have corresponding views on many issues, Japan is involved in several infrastructural proj ...

Through the last decade, India and Japan have made determined efforts to transform their bilateral ties. The week-long two-city state visit to India by Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko is evidence that those efforts have been successful. The Japanese emperor strictly stays away from politics, but his visits abroad are high in symbolism, usually signifying an important juncture in Japan’s relations with that country. After hitting a low in 1998 when Japanese sanctions against India for the Pokharan nuclear tests left relations crippled for more than two years, bilateral ties have grown rapidly within a short time to embrace a strategic partnership and defence links. Constant high-level interaction — the annual India-Japan summit, the regular exchanges between the two defence ministers, a “two plus two” dialogue involving the foreign and defence secretaries, a dialogue on maritime security, and a trilateral dialogue that includes the United States — has kept up the momentum. The two countries a ...

Japanese Emperor says India left a 'lasting impression' New Delhi: Japanese Emperor Akihito said the first visit of the royal couple to India more than half a century ago, as the then crown prince and princess, had left "a strong and lasting impression on us to this day" and hoped their current visit, as the king and queen of Japan, would deepen the bond of mutual friendship and trust between the two Asian countries. At a banquet hosted in his honour and Empress Michiko at the Rashtrapati Bhavan Monday night, Akihito, whose visit to India is of highly symbolic value signifying the importance that Japan is giving to its ties with India, recalled with fondness their long trip to India 53 years ago "as a representative of Emperor Showa". "We were received with the most gracious hospitality by Their Excellencies President (Rajendra) Prasad, Vice President Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, and Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru.

Most traditional Democrats, young people, union members, etc, are doing something almost unprecedented in history with the Obama-Care. They are being asked to perform actions which run directly against their own self interests. The only time things like that happen are under dictatorships where there is a Cult of Personality. Can there be any doubt that these Democrats see Obama as some sort of super-hero, super-human who must be obeyed, even it runs against one's own self interest? Think Adolph Hitler. Think Joseph Stalin. Think Benito Mussolini. Think Emperor Akihito. Think: BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA. This guy is being worshipped BY THE LEFT, as if he's super-human. Very, very dangerous.

Recovery Slow As Japan Marks 2 Years Since Tsunami by THE ASSOCIATED PRESS March 11, 2013 TOKYO (AP) — Amid growing dissatisfaction with the slow pace of recovery, Japan marked the second anniversary Monday of the devastating earthquake and tsunami that left nearly 19,000 people dead or missing and has displaced more than 300,000. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said that the government intends to make "visible" reconstruction progress and accelerate resettlement of those left homeless by streamlining legal and administrative procedures many blame for the delays. "I pray that the peaceful lives of those affected can resume as soon as possible," Emperor Akihito said at a somber memorial service at Tokyo's National Theater. At observances in Tokyo and in still barren towns along the northeastern coast, those gathered bowed their heads in a moment of silence marking the moment, at 2:46 p.m. on March 11, 2011, when the magnitude 9.0 earthquake — the strongest recorded in Japan's history — struck off ...

"My own vexation is that he granted that interview. A quick caveat: I intend to sound petulant in this piece; I have no apologies whatsoever for it. Here is why: He was inappropriately dressed for the weather and even though the President of Nigeria, he stood outside in the snow like a schoolboy before an annoyed school ma’am. His entire demeanour was undignifying. Was the interview so impromptu they could not have prepared him properly? Why interview the Nigerian president in such circumstances? Could it be that the CNN crew didn’t think he was of much consequence anyway and anything was good enough for him? And if they did not imagine the Nigerian president deserved better, does that attitude mirror the sort of regard they have for Nigerians because, invariably, a president is the sum total of his people? When President Barack Obama bowed to Emperor Akihito, the Japanese Premier, his countrymen were outraged. They protested that he made them bow to Asians; a gesture of respect took a life of its own ...
Chief Director Gailey Aligns CDK Financial Goals With Japanese - Vietnam Banking Merger As Circular Keiretsu Strategy Gains Global Momentum - As Gailey increases his organizations' focus on emerging global markets to counteract the racism and fiscal opposition of Credit Union One, a bigoted Alaska credit union he claims individually targeted him for harassment and illegal predatory lending, he applauded Mitsubishi UFJ's decision to invest in Vietnamese markets. "This recent action will bypass the harmful effects that the contemptible credit union has placed upon my personal US credit and give our corporation access to Japanese capital, and the Japanese credit bureaus, which are independent of US lending bureaus," Gailey said. - Gailey praised Emperor Akihito and Shinzo Abe for their leadership in helping Japanese-Americans rise above the bigotry and racism propagated by diabolical American lending cartels who intentionally seek to force Japanese-Americans into economic slavery and a life of servitude.
