The Emperor’s Birthday

free parking close by!

Today is Japan’s Emperor’s official birthday. It’s a *national holiday, like the **Queen’s birthday in some countries.

I don’t think people really do anything special to celebrate it though; other than not go to work.

It must suck to have a birthday so close to Christmas.

 

note: one of these years I’m going to send him a birthday card and see what happens.

double note: photo taken in Hayama near one of the Emperor’s summer residences.

triple note: I guess since he’s the only Emperor in the world, he gets the “Emperor’s New Clothes” joke played on him a lot.

* national holiday for people other than me.

** Queen Elizabeth the 2nd (not Queen Latifah or some other country’s Queen)
