Japanese lawmaker Taro Yamamoto (3rd L) hands a letter to Emperor Akihito (front C), while Empress Michiko (R) looks on, during the annual autumn garden party at the Akasaka Palace imperial garden in Tokyo October 31, 2013. Yamamoto handed Emperor Akihito the letter on Thursday expressing fear about the health impact of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, breaking a taboo by trying to involve the emperor in politics. Yamamoto, who is also an anti-nuclear activist, gave Akihito the letter during the garden party, setting off a storm of protest on the Internet from critics shocked at his action. Akihito, who turns 80 in December, fills a purely ceremonial role and remains above the political fray.
