Imperial Family Warns Against Abe Administration? Crown Prince Vows to “Continue Respecting the Constitution” and Emperor Says “Pacifist Constitution Made the Foundation of the Current Japan.”
– Person within the Circle of True Elite –
A person of insight will get the meaning of the remark of Crown Prince Naruhito. It is considerably important because the crown prince belongs to the circle of true elite who control Japan. Those within the circle have probably been reported about the incident I mentioned as a comment on the second article and have clarified their position. In a word, they clearly showed that they would bow to the wishes of the Nathaniel camp.

Imperial Family Warns Against Abe Administration? Crown Prince Vows to “Continue Respecting the Constitution” and Emperor Says “Pacifist Constitution Made the Foundation of the Current Japan.” – Person within the Circle of True Elite –
*Emperor and Crown Prince Unsatisfied with Amendment of Constitution by Prime Minister Abe?
Japan’s Crown Prince Naruhito has stressed the importance of abiding by the Constitution, in contrast with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe who has been pushing for amendment of the pacifist Constitution.
On 23rd Crown Prince Naruhito held a press conference before his 54th birthday. He said, “Japan has been enjoying peace and prosperity since the end of the war thanks to the Constitution as the cornerstone. We have to abide by the Constitution.” At a press conference on December last year, Emperor Ahihito also highly evaluated the pacifist Constitution, by saying that “After the war, Japan was occupied by the allied forces, but we upheld the values of peace and democracy, undertook various reforms and built the foundation of Japan that we know today.”
The emperor and the crown prince stressed the importance of abiding by the Constitution one after the other. We can interpret it as the meaning that they indicated their dissatisfaction toward the movement of Abe administration to amend the Constitution. Prime Minister Abe has pushed for the revision of Article 9 of the Constitution, which stipulates the prohibition of war and having armed forces, by saying, “The current Constitution was forced to be established under American military occupation.” The ruling party LDP has a policy to provide meetings to explain to the public about constitutional amendment across the country this year. The current Constitution stipulates the emperor as the symbol of the nation, while the draft of amended constitution by the LDP elevates the status of emperor to the “head of state.”
