Emperor Hirohito was best known for being the Japanese Emperor during the Second World War, and the first Emperor of Japan that most Americans, British & Dutch had ever heard of. He was instrumental in forcing the Japanese government (controlled by the Army) to offer to surrender to the Allies. He was primarily a figurehead only for Japanese actions during the war, and was allowed to remain Emperor after the war by the Allied Occupation Powers. Note: the current photo above is of General Tojo, the head of the Japanese government for most of the war, and one of the primary architects of Japan's war of conquest and a war criminal.

If MacArthur (leader of the Allied Occupation of Japan) had decided to get rid of the emperor I believe that the occupation would not have been as successful as it was. The Japanese people were already devastated by losing the war so if they lost their emperor (to the Japanese people he was seen almost as a deity, the center of their Shinto religion) as well I think their spirit would have broken completely. But by keeping the emperor I also think this allowed the Japanese to play into the role of the victim. The emperor was a major part of WWII and is considered by many to have been a war criminal. By not judging him so he does not have to pay for the decisions he made during the war and so the Japanese people refuse to accept all that happened during the war (especially in China and Korea).
