The Best Photos from Emperor Naruhito's Enthronement Ceremony in Japan's Imperial Palace

Naruhito proclaimed his ascension to the Chrysanthemum Throne, and royals from around the world have come to celebrate.

Today, Japan's first enthronement ceremony in three decades took place. Representatives from nearly 200 countries, including members of many royal families, flew in to celebrate Emperor Naruhito's accession to the Chrysanthemum Throne.

The event comes after the 85-year-old Emperor Akihito abdicated the throne this past April, ending his 30-year reign. Akihito was the first Japanese emperor to abdicate in 200 years, making way for the then-Crown Prince Naruhito and his wife Crown Princess Masako to acceed.
