The Emperor’s anniversary
The Japanese ambassador to Venezuela Yasuo Matsui recently held a cocktail to celebrate the Emperor’s Anniversary at his elegant residence in the Country Club.

As stated in the Constitution of Japan, the Emperor is “the symbol of the State and unity of the people” his position from “the will of the people with whom resides sovereign power.” Inspired by these phrases, the country celebrates the emperor’s anniversary with joy and happiness.
Emperor Akihito was born in Tokyo on December 23, 1933, with great joy of the entire nation, as the first son of Emperor Showa and Empress Kojun. He has four elder sisters, one younger brother and one younger sister. Since the Enthronement in 1989, the Emperor, and Empress, have a wide range of official duties. The tenth Anniversary of the Enthronement of the Emperor was celebrated in 1999 with a number of commemorative ceremonies and colourful exotic events.
With their strong sense of duty and constant attention to the needs of their people, their Majesties have brought the Imperial Family closer to the general public with dignity. At the Imperial Palace, their Majesties host hundreds of ceremonies, audiences, teas, lunches, and dinners all year round.
On these occasions, they meet a large number of visitors from all walks of life, government officials, local government leaders, businessmen, farmers and fishermen, social and welfare workers, scholars and artists. State banquets for visiting Heads of State are also held at the Imperial Palace.
After welcoming words by the ambassador, the attendees shared their experiences about Japanese culture, while they enjoyed delicious Japanese food including the exquisite Sake drink.
