Her name is Park Geun-hye

Also probably because they don't really do too much day to day. If the government of Japan has to fight a giant monster invasion, the emperor isn't the first one that needs to be called.

If you swap the setting of a show to England, showing the Queen would be like a brief cutaway for a reaction as something bad happens, then they would continue to ignore her.

It's probably nothing but a historical value much like the queen of England and just like the English have a constitutional monarchy the Japanese have 1 too where it's government has a prime minister and a parliament so the queen of England and the emperor of Japan are nothing more than historical figureheads that are culturally significant.

I have noticed the Emperor of Japan is never mentioned in animes or mangas. Is this law or just kind of an unspoken rule?


The first episode of Gate. The Gate guard at the Imperial palace receives a phone call and is instructed to open the palace gates to let the people onto the palace grounds to save then from the invading horde. When he hangs up, he says it was orders from the emperor.
