Crown Prince Naruhito ascended the throne as the 126th Emperor of Japan on May 1, starting the Reiwa era, following the abdication of his father, Akihito, on April 30.

The coronation ceremony of Emperor Naruhito was participated by a large number of domestic and foreign guests. This is one of the biggest international events with the largest numbers of foreign leaders that Japan has held.

At the ceremony, Emperor Naruhito swore that he will act according to the constitution and fulfill his responsibility as the symbol of the state and of the unity of the people.

He expressed his hope that Japan will develop further and contribute to the friendship and peace of the international community, and to the welfare and prosperity of human beings through the people’s wisdom and ceaseless efforts.

PM Phuc’s trip to attend the coronation ceremony takes place amid the flourishing extensive strategic partnership between Vietnam and Japan.

Emperor Naruhito visited Vietnam in 2009 as the Crown Prince. His father, Akihito, was the first Japanese emperor to have visited the country with a trip in 2017, which was also his last official tour of a foreign nation before his abdication.
