You have got to be kidding me.
No, that is not the correct explosive expression of emotion.
OK, now we know that history in Japan is truly over.
There, that's better.
The news is that Her Highness Princess Noriko will be marrying the son of the chief priest at Izumo Taisha.
What is unbelievable about that?
That an imperial princess is marrying the son of the chief priest at Izumo Taisha.
Imagine, for example, an announcement that the daughter of Ali Al-Sistani was to marry the son of Abdul Rahman Al-Sudais. That is sort of how crazy this announcement is, from a religious history perspective.
And yet, in the English language articles on the wedding announcement -- like this just-the-facts Mainichi report (Link) or this too-embarrassingly-sycophantic-to-read version from, where else, the Yomiuri Shimbun (Link) -- not a even a whiff of the astonishing bridging of a religious feud going back close to two millennia.
