    (December 23, 1933- )
    Born in Tokyo, Japan
    125th emperor of Japan (1989-April 30, 2019)
    Son of Emperor Hirohito
    Father of Crown Prince Naruhito
    His personal name is never used; instead he’s called ‘His Imperial Majesty the Emperor.’
    His father’s militarism brought Japan into World War Two.
    He attended Gakushuin University in Tokyo but did not graduate.
    When young, he complained that Japanese royals were like robots.
    His power is largely symbolic.
    As a child he experienced the firebombing of Tokyo during World War Two.
    He was the first Japanese royal to marry a commoner, Michiko Shoda.
    He has tried to bring the Japanese royal family closer to the general public.
    He expressed regret for Japanese atrocities committed during World War Two.
    Like his father, he is an accomplished marine biologist (and even has a fish named after him, Exyrias akihito).
