Mr. and Mrs. Emperor Take a walk through the settlement of Karuizawa, August 23, 13:05
The Emperor and his wife, who are recuperating in Karuizawa-machi, Nagano Prefecture, visited a reclaimed land opened up by people who returned from Manchuria after the war.
The Emperor and his wife entered a retreat in Karuizawa-machi, Nagano Prefecture from the 22nd, and on the morning of the 23rd, they visited the “Ohinata Reclaimed Land” that spreads out at the foot of Mount Asama.
This land was opened by people who moved to Manchuria before the war, moved to the old Manchuria, and survived the confusion and food shortages after the war. The field is cultivated with highland vegetables such as lettuce.
It was raining until the morning in the field, and fog was standing, but just before the Emperor and his wife visited, a sunny day came out, and they were walking slowly with their arms crossed while the cool breeze was blowing .
The Empress is diagnosed with relatively early breast cancer and is expected to have surgery after next month.
The Imperial Household Agency says that “I would like you to wait for the recovery of physical fitness and receive surgery”, and the Emperors and their wife will be recuperated in Karuizawa and Kusatsu, Gunma Prefecture until 30th of this month.
