Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko of Japan have finished their historical 12-day tour of Canada. This was a rare treat for many Canadians, especially Japanese-Canadians who got see the royal couple live in person. This was Emperor Akihito's second trip to Canada as he first visited the country in 1953 when he was then Crown Prince of Japan. The emperor and empress have now landed and are now doing a tour of Hawaii.
