Empress celebrates her 64th birthday
Empress Michiko, who turns 64 Oct. 20, walks in an Imperial
Palace garden in Tokyo. The empress said she sees the next century
as a new age of mutual help and caring in which people will go beyond
the framework of the family and build greater social solidarity.
''Within this new, strong frame of solidarity, I hope to live the
same age, continually attentive to occurrences in society, helping
and receiving help from people,'' the empress said in written replies
to questions by the Japanese media. The photo, taken Oct. 2, was
provided by the Imperial Household Agency.
