Emperor Naruhito attended a clandestine ritual on Thursday where he was bestowed with ancient secrets clarifying the difference between the は and が particles.

The Rising Wasabi has obtained evidence of part of the “は・が sermon” from an anonymous source close to the Imperial Household Agency.

The Emperor was informed that “the most important part of the sentence comes after the は particle”, while “the most important part of the sentence comes before the が particle”, according to the source.

The Emperor was also told that は is used to introduce a different topic from the current one, but if the topic is unknown the が particle is used.

It is still unclear, however, if these two points are related.

The leaked document obtained by the anonymous source was reportedly only one of nine documents presented to the Emperor explaining the differences between は and が.
