In the mid-1980s, when I was a young lecturer at Essex University, I was walking down one of its endless corridors and came across a group of three people. One of them was the Vice Chancellor, and another was an academic of some kind. The third was an oriental man about my age, who had just finished unveiling a plaque. I didn't exactly have to squeeze past him to continue down the corridor, because it was fairly wide and the group wasn't taking up much room; nevertheless, I came well within a metre of him as I walked past.

I looked for the plaque yesterday but couldn't find it.

Today, that man became the Emperor of Japan.
