The Emperor and Empress hear about the Fugaku supercomputer in Kobe on Saturday.

The Emperor and Empress observed the Fugaku supercomputer during a visit to the Riken research institute’s Center for Computational Science in Kobe.

“It provides very valuable data,” the Emperor said Saturday while listening to a researcher explain that Fugaku was used for experiments simulating the spread of droplets related to the novel coronavirus.

After leaving the center, the Emperor and Empress met at a Kobe hotel with local residents involved in the fisheries industry.
