– The Emperor sent his video message to Japanese people. In it he said that he was concerned that his senility would make his public works more difficult. He also uttered his negative opinion against setting up a regent. His words suggest that his throne should be abdicated to the successor in the near future if it is allowed, although he didn’t refer to his abdication directly.
