    Reiwa (Japan imperial succession thread)



    Formal investiture ceremony starts for new Japanese Emperor Naruhito

    TOKYO (Reuters) - The formal investiture ceremony for new Japanese Emperor Naruhito began on Wednesday, marking the first time in over 200 years that an emperor has acceded to the throne following an abdication.

    Former Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko stepped down on Tuesday after three decades as the nation’s top royals in a brief, simple ceremony, with Akihito thanking the people of Japan and saying he prayed for peace.

    The first part of Wednesday’s ceremony was watched by a small group that did not include Empress Masako, Naruhito’s wife, since female royals are not permitted to take part.

    Naruhito, 59, is the first Japanese emperor born after World War Two, the first to graduate from university and the first to spend an extended time studying overseas.

    Empress Masako, 55, was a career diplomat before marrying him in 1993.
    A new era for Japan. I understand there is a gala event later this year, in October, where world leaders will attend.

    In a recent poll, Chrono Trigger was voted best video game of the previous imperial era. (1989-2019)

    Let's wait and see how they handle their self-imposed "Y2K" problem.

    Does the ceremony involve some form of ritual suicide or is that reserved for cubicle office workers in modern Japan?

    Its no coincidence that the countries with the greatest qualities of life in the world are constitutional monarchies.

    Considering the state of political dynasties in most western nations would you rather have a 'supreme leader' who is:

    a): Bred from birth to be an apolitical guiding hand.

    b): Bred from birth to further the accumulation of power and wealth for his family's self interests.

    Consider also the concentration of a 'new' political 'aristocracy' in modern constituional monarchies (although this is more pronounced in the likes of the USA).
