NHK has revealed breaking news that the emperor is thinking about changing the layout of his bedroom furniture in the coming weeks.

“Any alterations in the emperor’s bedroom furniture placements will have significant implications on the population at large,” according to the NHK report.

The emperor has already been seen walking around his bedroom quarters holding a retractable tape measure.

“He’s even hand-written a bedroom diagram using one of those old HB pencils and started to cut out little pieces of cardboard to replicate the furniture,” said one NHK reporter.

“The little bedroom illustration is the correct scale to within one centimetre.”

The emperor has spent hours shifting the cardboard pieces, with NHK reporting that it looks likely that the bed facing away from the bedroom door is currently his most favored arrangement.
