WIT Life #335: End of an era

Written by professional Writer/Interpreter/Translator Stacy Smith (Kumamoto-ken CIR, 2000-03), WIT Life is a periodic series about aspects of Japanese culture such as film, food and language. Stacy starts her day by watching Fujisankei’s newscast in Japanese, and here she shares some interesting tidbits and trends along with her own observations.

As the article details, there was plenty of time for preparation since Emperor Akihito’s abdication was announced in 2017.  This is in contrast to the previous transition, which took place within Read More
