Reiwa: Japan prepares to enter new era of 'fortunate harmony' | World news | The Guardian
Japanese public bodies and companies now have a month to incorporate the new era’s name into their paperwork and computer systems before Naruhito ascends the Chrysanthemum throne, becoming the country’s 126th emperor.
