Japan's New Emperor To Celebrate Enthronement Rite of Night With Goddess

According to WION, this Thursday brings the last major enthronement rite for Japan's new Emperor Naruhito-- spending the night with the sun goddess from whom some believe the Emperor is descended. This ceremony, known as the Daijosai has led to a suit by a group of 300 people who claim that the millions of dollars spent by the government on the ceremony violates the separation of church and state.
