Today the japanese emperor will officaly ascends his throne.
Hello from Japan! Today is the 22.10.19. It is a holiday because today the Japanese emperor officially ascends his throne and officially announces the "Kroenung" or his accession to the throne all over the world. The TV stations have been zealously reporting since yesterday about all the riffs, the importance of these rents. This is quite interesting, because actually you can hardly see these old Japanese traditions today.
In the morning the new emperor will perform a religious rite, then in the afternoon he will climb the Chrisenthenentron and announce his accession to the throne of the whole world.
A parade had been scheduled in the afternoon, but that was canceled because of the typhoon. This parade will be on the 10th of November. In the evening there will be a banquet with the invited guests. Various guests from all over the world have been invited. Various nobles from all over the world are there too.
Yesterday evening in the news was shown how hobby photographers, who like to take pictures of aircraft at the Handheld Airport have gathered in heaps and have photographed various planes of the governments. Because it is really rare that an emperor ascends the throne. As far as I know, the current Emperor Naruhito is the only emperor in the world and actually seen in the aristocratic world, the highest ranks holder in the world.
When ambassadors in Japan take up their duties as ambassadors in Japan, they are asked to be emperor, to an audience. You can choose between horse-drawn carriage and car.
Also last year on Emperor's birthday, I was greeted by the Heisei Emperor (The previous emperor, who abdicated). Wait 3 hours and then wait for a huge place in front of the present palace on the emperor and his greeting, 2 minutes went by the speech of the emperor and then again with many other people to the exit .... was a time consuming thing, but a valuable one Experience.
So, I'm curious how that day will be!
