Good luck his highness and all our Japanese friends.

Not often that we see a new Emperor.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Who needs clothes when you are Sun God? Smile

Yes, a new Emperor. It's Golden Week here in Japan with the unusually long vacation of 2 consecutive weeks (in theory) for many.

The new era is called Reiwa and according to official Japanese government authorities, the accurate English translation is "Beautiful Harmony."

Empress Masako speaks fluent English and is a Harvard graduate.

If I'm not mistaken, there are several Kings around the world, but only one Emperor.

Originally a title conferred by vote of the Roman army on a successful general, later by the Senate on Julius and Augustus Caesar and adopted by their successors except Tiberius and Claudius. In the Middle Ages, applied to rulers of China, Japan, etc.; non-historical European application in English had been only to the Holy Roman Emperors (who in German documents are called kaiser), from late 13c., until in 1804 Napoleon took the title "Emperor of the French."

I am not sure if the old fashioned way, soldiers and so on voting in their generals, would be good or not but it sounds good.
