the queen's diamond jubilee

Here in the UK we're in the middle of the diamond jubilee weekend. It was a bit shame about the weather but the pageant on the Thames looked great in the screen. It was like a vessel museum on the river. It was spectacular. 
In Japan it has been always a male Imperial family member who succeed to the throne. Recently we're having arguments if we should change the law and allow succession to female members also. I think it would be hard to understand for you having the Queen why that is even the issue. Apparently one of the reasons is to do with our native religion Shinto. Like some other religions there are things women shouldn't do (or, shouldn't be allowed to do). 
Anyway I wondered what it would be like if our emperor made a pageant...
