Japan’s little prince goes home
by Jack Richins
A new prince is born – Japan’s little prince goes home – Asia-Pacific – MSNBC.com. The article mentions Japan had been considering changing it’s laws to allow succesion through females. Amazing – over a 1000 years of male succesion. Most people don’t realize it, but Japan’s "emperor" is really more of a religious office than a political one. Or at least it has been since the Shoguns.
