Personal Quote:

We must endure the unendurable and bear the unbearable. [From his remarks upon announcing Japan's decision to surrender in WW2]


Most of his own subjects had never seen his face or heard his voice until after the war. Hirohito would be the first Japanese emperor to broadcast on the radio, announcng the Japanese surrender. See more »
