Emperor Naruhito will formally declare his ascension as Japan’s 126th monarch in front of about 2,000 leaders and representatives from over 170 countries and regions at the Imperial Palace on Tuesday.

The Sokuirei Seiden no Gi (enthronement ceremony) will represent the old tradition that has been carried on over 1,000 years, but at the same time, it will be closely watched by people around the world as the beginning of the new era led by a new generation of the imperial family.
