The Emperor succeeded immediately upon the death of Emperor Showa early in the morning of 7 January 1989. Later that day at the Imperial Palace the new Emperor received two of the Three Sacred Treasures, symbolising his accession. At midnight the Showa era officially ended and the Heisei era began. This was all in accordance with the Imperial Household Law, Article 4:
Upon the demise of the Emperor, the Imperial Heir shall immediately accede to the Throne.
The Accession Ceremonies held in 1990 confirmed what had already occurred in 1989. Some of the ceremonies, such as the Daijosai were relatively private because of sensitivities over the Government's involvement with Shinto rituals. State support was justified on the grounds that the ceremonies were primarily cultural, not religious. But it was not an entirely convincing argument, and opponents of the monarchy claimed that the ceremonies were unconstitutional. A few years ago I discovered that the Japanese Consulate had a couple of old VHS videos of the Enthronement Ceremonies, with English commentary. I borrowed them, and very fascinating they were too (so much so that I copied them to DVD and still watch them every now and then).

Three years ago I went on a tour of the Imperial Palace in Kyoto, where the Imperial Thrones of the Emperor and Empress are housed in the Shishin-den (Hall of State Ceremonies). We weren't allowed onto the courtyard in front of the Shishin-den, but, from the gate, you could just make out the Emperor's Throne.

After The Queen, Charles, William, Catherine and Camilla, these two are my favorites. I like the Crown Prince and Crown Princess too.
