On the front page of "The Daily Yomiuri" there is a photo and an article about the Venus Transit as well as the announcement of the Emperor's cousin, Prince Tomohito, passing away on Wednesday, June 6. It was a rainy day in Tokyo.
Another newspaper, "Mainichi Shimbun," quoted him about the role of the Imperial Family as "Shining light on places where no light shines: That's important."
