The Emperor Addresses the Nation

Statements such as this, from the Emperor, are *extremely* rare and underscores the severity of the crisis Japan is facing. The Emperor said he was "deeply concerned" about the damaged nuclear reactors and called for continued national solidarity. He asked the Japanese people to pray for the victims as he would be doing.

"An earthquake of 9 degrees has never happened in Japan. Do not know yet the number of victims, but I pray it will save the greatest number possible," the Emperor said. He encouraged the people and thanked the people from around the world who have sent their sympathies to Japan.

"I sincerely hope that the people will overcome this unfortunate time to care for each other," the Emperor said. Thanks to The Radical Royalist for bringing this to my attention.

With all of our prayers I am sure.
God bless Japan
Long live the Emperor
