Kami's Summer Update

Dear Kami,
Everyday you leave links informing us of the going ons around the World and Japan,
unfortunately not everyone seems to catch them in time.
How about an update to sum things up?
Thank you for all your hard work.

Hey You!
What's with all your links and spam?
I'm content with limiting myself to the confines of my room!
Forget the outside world!
What are you trying to do?
Make us learn during Summer Vacation?!!

Ahh... Summer Vacation... if I wasn't so poor, I'd go somewhere... but instead I opted for a "Stay-cation".
If you had the chance, where would you go? What would you do?

Well... if you're out of ideas on how to celebrate your 50th wedding anniversary,
or your 80th anniversary of diplomatic ties...
Why not take cue from the Royal Couple and visit Canada?

On July 3rd, Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko started their tour in Canada.
After some fun in the sun, The Emperor and Empress had luncheons, dinners and meetings with
Not bad for a country that some say has little to no political power *cough PC cough*.

After Ottawa, the tour continued south to Canada's Multi-Cultural, Metropolitan jewel... Toronto.
First on the list was a visit to Sick Kids Hospital...
Perhaps the Emperor and Empress were unaware of the horror stories from down south?
After a Japanese lullaby from the Empress, there were more official meetings and luncheons at Queens Park with
Ontairo Premier Dalton McGuinty.
Visits to the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre and Momiji Senior Centre ended the Toronto Tour before heading to Vancouver and Victoria.



This summer also marks the 64th Anniversary of the end of World War II.
While 61% of American's polled think Nuclear Bombings are a "Good thing",
Japan commemorated the event with prayers for peace and hopes of global nuclear disarmament.
Both Liberal Democratic Party leader Prime Minister Taro Aso and opposition leader Yukio Hatoyama of the Democratic Party of Japan had their say on Japan's Nuclear principles and future of Japan.
Elections are set for August 30th.

In less serious news, Japan won first place for the first time at Nagoya's Cosplay Championship.
