Japanese Emperor Says He Wishes to Visit Korea, Can Apologize If Needed
The Japanese Emperor has reportedly expressed his wish to visit Korea and said he could apologize to the Korean people for his country's atrocities during its colonial rule of Korea, if necessary.
A Japanese magazine reported this week that Emperor Akihito said he hopes Korea and Japan maintain good relations adding that he and and Empress Michiko would like to visit Korea some day.
This is the first time that the Japanese Emperor has expressed his wish to visit Korea after President Lee Myung-bak called on him last month to apologize for Japan's wartime atrocities first if he wishes to ever visit Korea.
Citing a Japanese lawmaker, the magazine said the Emperor would be willing to offer an apology DURING his visit.
