Tanjoubi omedetou! Again!

Today is a very important day in Japan.
It is in fact one of the most important of days!

That day would be Kami's birthday the Emperor's birthday! Well, it's Kami's big day too, but this one is pretty important as well.

Emperor Akihito, Japan's current Emperor (and the world's only reigning monarch with the title), turns 74.

Interestingly enough, the Emperor shares a birthday with one of the predeceasing Emperors of the Chrysanthemum throne, Emperor Antoku, born in 1185.

Read more about the Chrysanthemum family here in the Japan blog. Here's one about the youngest of the clan's first birthday.
