Japanese Emperor Abdicates

Timothy Birdnow

Japanese Emperor Akihito is abdicating his throne. Long live the Emperor!

According to Al Jazeera:

Japan's 85-year-old Emperor Akihito will end his three-decade reign on Tuesday when he abdicates to his son Crown Prince Naruhito.

He's the first emperor to abdicate in 200 years. The last abdication by a Japanese monarch was in 1817.

Naruhito will become emperor on Wednesday, but his formal enthronement will take place at a more elaborate ceremony in October.

So, why is the old boy packing it in? Poor health and his advanced age seem to be the reason. Japan has no law of succession; a new Emperor is chosen when the old one dies. The Japanese Diet, their parliament enacted a one-time law to accommodate the resignation.
