New Year imperial poetry reading

Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko (seated on the lefthand side) attend an annual New Year's poetry recitation at the Imperial Palace on Jan. 14. Ten poems chosen from 22,813 entries were recited in traditional style along with the poems written by members of the imperial family. This year's theme was ''ao,'' meaning blue or green, which sometimes has nuances of youth or freshness. ==Kyodo
