Muragimo no kokoro ni toite hajizaraba
Yono hitogoto wa ikani aritomo.
Se consultares o teu coração
e não sentires vergonha de nada,
então deixa que o povo do mundo
diga o que lhe apetece.
An Empress Shoken's poem:
If you consult your inmost heart
and still need feel no shame,
then let the people of the world
talk as they please.
This moment of poetry was brought to you by me and Tokyo's Meiji Jingu.
