The Reiwa Era

Tuesday, 30 April, 2019

That’s what begins tomorrow in Japan when Prince Naruhito becomes the country’s 126th emperor. He will ascend the Chrysanthemum throne and lead the country into the new Reiwa era. This will mark the end of the current Heisei era, which began with today’s abdicating Emperor Akihito in 1989.

The talented young Japanese photographer Tatsuto Shibata was born in Ibaraki, a prefecture bordering the Pacific Ocean northeast of Tokyo. Shibata’s compositions oscillate between the classical and the quirky, like this Buddha.
