 Japanese Empress Michiko Down With Acute Bronchitis
The Japanese Empress Michiko has been diagnosed with acute bronchitis, reported a spokesman for the Imperial House.

The 82-year-old Empress cancelled her schedule to attend a national karate championship in Tokyo after being diagnosed with the respiratory disease.

However, she does not need to be hospitalized, according to the Japanese Imperial Household.


The health of her 82-year-old husband Emperor Akihito was more fragile following a heart bypass operation in 2012.
