2,600 Guests to Attend Japanese New Emperor Naruhito’s Coronation

TOKYO – Some 2,600 guests will be attending Prince Naruhito’s coronation ceremony as emperor of Japan on Oct. 22, 2019, six months after his father, Akihito, abdicates the throne, the government said on Tuesday.

The number of guests, announced on Tuesday by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe-led committee that is responsible for organizing ceremonies related to the abdication and imperial succession, is 800 less than the invitees at Akihito’s coronation in 1990.

The Japanese government also decided to reduce the number of receptions that the new emperor will be hosting on his ascension from seven to four, Abe said.

The receptions will take place on Oct. 22, 25, 29 and 31.

The Crown Prince, Naruhito, 59, will ascend to the Chrysanthemum throne on May 1 – a day after the resignation of the Emperor Akihito (who will have turned 85 by then). The official ceremony will be held six months later.

Emperor Akihito’s coronation, held on Nov. 12, 1990, had seven banquets divided over four consecutive days that brought together 3,400 guests.

Abe said the government chose to hold fewer banquets to reduce the workload of the future emperor and the other members of the imperial family, including his wife Masako, who will participate in the events.

In October 2019, the Tokyo Imperial Palace will host representatives and dignitaries from the country and rest of the world in a series of events that, among other details, will include a parade of the emperors in a Japanese-made convertible.
