The Emperor's Birthday 2017

December 23, 2017 in Japan

The Emperor's Birthday takes place on December 23, 2017. The Emperor's Birthday is a national holiday in the Japanese calendar. The date is determined by the reigning Emperor's birthdate. Emperor Akihito was born on this date in 1933. On Emperor's Birthday, a public ceremony takes place at the Imperial Palace, where the gates of the palace are opened to public traffic. The Emperor, accompanied by Empress Michiko and several other members of the Imperial family, appears on a palace balcony to acknowledge the birthday congratulations of crowds of festive well-wishers waving tiny Japanese flags. Only on this occasion and on 2 January may the general public enter the inner grounds of the Imperial Palace. When the Emperor ceases his greeting (however brief), the crowd starts waving the flags again and the Imperial Family wave back. (With material from: Wikipedia)
