  June 14, 2016 at 6:21 am by

Their Imperial Majesties Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko attended the 72nd Japan Art Academy Awards Ceremony yesterday in Tokyo. Their Majesties were dressed formally, with the Emperor wearing a black morning suit, grey waistcoat and grey tie, whilst the Empress wore a traditional Kimomo in grey silk fabric with fern-green embroidery.

The Emperor and Empress both take a keen interest in the arts, most notably for music, and regularly request to attend a variety of concerts and exhibitions throughout the year. The Awards Ceremony yesterday is an event that they attend almost every year.
