Garden party

Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko greet guests during an autumn garden party at Akasaka Palace Imperial garden in Tokyo on Friday. It was their last garden party before an imperial succession next year. Crown Princess Masako, who has long been battling a stress-induced illness, stayed until the end of the event on Friday for the first time in 15 years. In recent years, she had left the biannual party early. The emperor and empress will not perform any official duties after their eldest son, Crown Prince Naruhito, ascends the imperial throne on May 1, 2019.
