Monday April 29, 2019 08:58 PM AP Analysis: New Japanese emperor looks to match father, who's leaving him a blueprint for being a successful figurehead emperor Written by By FOSTER KLUG, Associated Press When Crown Prince Naruhito on Wednesday becomes, by official Japanese count, the 126th person to occupy the Chrysanthemum Throne since 660 B.C., he will be ceremonially armed with the glittering, ancient imperial regalia of sword and jewel.
