Japan’s Emperor Akihito to make rare public address 

Japan’s Emperor Akihito is set to deliver his second ever televised address to the nation, after reports he wants to step down in coming years. Last month, Japanese media reported that the emperor wanted to step down in coming years, which would be unprecedented in modern Japan. He is not expected to use the word “abdicate” because he is barred from political involvement.
