The next morning, his son, Crown Prince Naruhito, 59, will ascend the throne in ceremonies also at the palace.
Akihito, 85, helped modernize the world’s oldest hereditary monarchy. He was the first Japanese emperor to marry a commoner — Empress Michiko — and the first to reign entirely under the U.S.-drafted postwar, pacifist constitution that made the role strictly symbolic.
