His Imperial Majesty Emperor Akihito of Japan gave his final New Years address and made his final traditional New Years public appearance before record crowds ahead of his abdication on April 30, 2019.  The Emperor was greeted with tears and thanks by an emotional crowd.  Crown Prince Naruhito will ascend the Imperial throne on May 1, 2019.
