NotesNews: 29 Sep: London was occupied with preparations for the arrival of the first Emperor and Empress of Japan to set foot in the UK. At the reception at Claridges British food rather than sukiyaki would be served because "the Emperor is interested in recapturing his experience of 50 years ago." It was on his visit as Crown Prince in 1921 that he acquired the fondness for porridge. ... The Emperor is a distinguished marine biologist, whose publications include The Crabs of Sagami Bay and its equally learned sequel The Hydrocorals and Scleratinian Corals of Segami Bay. ...[The Times]
