Goodbye Heisei, Welcome to Reiwa Era

The Reiwa period (令和時代) will be the next era of Japan. The period is expected to start on 1 May 2019, the day when Emperor Akihito's elder son, Naruhito, is expected to ascend to the throne as the 126th Emperor of Japan. Emperor Akihito is expected to abdicate the Chrysanthemum Throne on 30 April 2019, marking the end of Heisei period. The year 2019 corresponds to Heisei 31 until 30 April, and Reiwa 1 (令和元年) from 1 May 2019.

The Japanese government announced the name during a live televised press conference, as Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga traditionally revealed the kanji calligraphy on a board. Prime Minister Shinzō Abe said that Reiwa represents "a culture being born and nurtured by people coming together beautifully".

The Japanese Foreign Ministry translated Reiwa as "beautiful harmony" to dispeel reports that the "Rei" in it translated as "command" or "order". He added that it is neither an official translation nor meant to be the best interpretation of the new era name into English.
