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.
