Last day of ” Heisei – era “

As a Japanese living in Scotland, it is not much chance to use era based year …

But today is really the big day for Japan.

The Japanese current emperor Akihito started 1989 to 2019, today is the abdication day…

Last day of Akihito emperor period ” Heisei ” His son new emperor Naruhito is on his right hand.


Just as I am thinking back of his emperor time, I was the end of the teen, now I am 50.

Life is strange, I never knew I was going to live in Scotland…

Hoping the ” Reiwa ” bring a peaceful period for all over the world.
