Otanjyoubi Omedetou Gozaimasu!

Otanjyoubi omedetou gozaimasu! (Happy Birthday!)

Today, Dec. 23, is Tennou no Otanjyoubi- Emperor's Birthday. Every Emperor's birthday is a National Holiday in Japan. When they get a new Emperor, they change the date. Current Emperor is Akihito (Heisei).

Kinjou tennou (Reigning Emperor, as he will not be referred to as Emperor Heisei until after his death) was born this day in 1933, the fifth son of Tennou Showa.

Kinjou Tennou has a wife (Empress Michiko), two sons (Naruhito and Akishino), and a daughter (Sayako Kuroda, formerly Princess Nori).
