I saw The Coronation Ceremony pictures for the first time.
I am very interested in ceremony of The Imperial Family of Japan.
But, I can't find the pictures of The Coronation Ceremony Of Japan
on the Internet.
So, I am very glad to see this photograph!
This ceremony is very ancient and beautiful!
Of course, this ceremony is oriental,but a little Europe style.
It is very interesting!

I would like to see this photograph more very much.
Could you show me more pictures of this ceremony?
(Oriental one and Europian one)

Japan - Coronation Ceremony
 
Can anyone help me please?
I found some interesting pictures of the coronation of Emperor Akihito of Japan, but I want to know how the ceremony is held in detail. That means, who does what at a certain time. Especially in a shintoistic point of view. Details about the funeral of a member of the royal family or even the emperor himself would be fine as well.

Thanks in advance!

What an interesting question. Does anyone know the answer or can anyone provide a link to the answer?

I am no expert in this, but I have read that there are several ceremonies for what is called an Imperial Enthronement. There is no Japanese 'crown" at all. The Emperor takes possession of the 3 Sacred Relics of the Sun Goddess privately ( a mirror, a sword, and a necklace.) Later there is a traditional enthronement ceremony in which Emperor and Empress appear in ancient dress seated on elaborate throne structures in the old Palace at Kyoto are recieve homage. Still later, the Emperor alone observes a sacred ritual meal alone in a nocturnal ritual of the Sun Goddess.

That sounds like an incredibly beautiful ceremony. Thank you for the information, Gutsy.

Question: does the Japanese public see the Emperor and Empress at all during these ceremonies??

Thank you for the kind words!
As I understand it only the ceremonial enthronement ceremony is public. I remember seeing pictures somehwre of it (perhaps on these forums?) and vaguer memories of TV coverage in 1991 (?)when the current Emperor was enthroned. Definitely the enthronement at Kyoto is THE public event and involves the Empress as well. The other 2 ceremonies are private.
