@KentaroTomono I might have been erroneous in thinking that the Emperor wanted to change. However, members of his government did. The edited question works for me.

comment Real-life examples of finding long-lost treasure?
@FelixGoldberg Just saw your comment. Dead Sea scrolls were never sold (as far as I know) once their true origin were ascertained. I suspect that if they were sold, they would fetch prices in the millions at auctions.

comment Samurai blade honing during wartime
@mattm We are martial arts expert, not historians. The samurai class is no more for more than a century, katana are no longer weapons of war used on far away battlefields, and even amongst those of us who still learn the ancient way of the sword, wood and bamboo is preferred over blunt steel let alone sharp steel.
