In 2016, Emperor Akihito expressed his will to abdicate due to his advanced age and unsecured health. In June 2017, Japan issued a one-time effective law, whereby Emperor Akihito could abdicate and would be the first emperor in Japan to abdicate in the last 200 years, and Prince Naruhito would succeed.
Emperor Akihito was crowned in 1989 after his father who was Emperor Hirohito died. During the reign, Emperor Akihito is always respected and loved by Japanese people. Although not in political power, new Emperor played a very important role as a national symbol, presiding over the heads of countries to Japan, as well as carrying out foreign tours to promote the foreign relations of Japan.
