The Emperor in love. Is that why they’re rarely seen in the media?

In spite of their being public figures, the Emperor and Empress look very much in love in this island nation. I never understand why the Japanese royal family is not promoted more heavily for tourism, diplomacy, and the sheer entertainment value for their subjects. That’s the case in Europe, isn’t it?

  1. It’s very lucky, that monarchy is not promoted in Japan. Here in UK every sneeze by royals is discussed and photographed. Unfortunately, there’s nowhere to apply for “I don’t care” option. I envy the Japanese approach! πŸ˜‰
