Today we celebrate Japanese Emperor Hirohito’s death in 1989 after living for 88 years in love with nature and wishing to commune with nature at every opportunity, which was pretty easy for the Emperor of Japan since they were expected to do little else. However Hirohito did truly love nature and all that goes along with it. It’s a little odd that they waited until he died to honor him with his greatest love of life.
How to celebrate – Spend the day with nature. Tend your garden. Visit Japan.
