Headline April 14, 2018/ '' 'JAPANESE CROWNING TREASURES' ''


IN CROWNING ASIA - Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India, has the highest of esteemed regards and respect for The World Students Society.

The World Students Society reciprocates that with great honors and humility, and wishes Prime Minister Modi every success in the coming elections.

Somewhere after 1.0 : the baseline and inaugural elections of the students of Proud Pakistan, the  Students of India should be pondering 1.3 - 1.4 - 1.5...............

And as the pendulum swings, the students of Japan should begin forming up and debating, 1.12 and  onwards and ongoing. The great honor of this accomplishment is for the Japanese Students to uphold.

Trust that is clear to the Great Host Students Of America and Engineer and Founder Shahzaib Khan Yusafzai and his band of geniuses.

The World at large shimmers with hope and breathlessness.

THE ABDICATION OF JAPAN'S outgoing Emperor Akihito and the enthronement of his son Naruhito will be solemn, ritual bound affairs complete with sumptuous clothing and sacred paraphernalia.

Here are some of the key elements of the garb and gear that will be seen during the enthronement of the new emperor and subsequent key succession events.

IN THE PAST, ROYALS would sometimes attach ''cheat sheets'' to the back of the shaku to help  guide them through complex rituals, and it can also be an indicator of their attentiveness.

''It would be obvious to people around you if your mind is wandering or disorderly because the shaku  would start to slant to the side,'' said Tomtaro Hashimoto, assistant professor of Shinto studies at Reitaku University.

But the crowning glory of the emperor's outfit is the kanmuri hat, which consists of simple flat black base and a towering black tail at the back that extends upright 60 centimetres [about 24 inches].

Fit For An Empress: INCOMING empress Masako will wear an elaborate outfit commonly known as ''junihitoe'' or many layered-robe.

''The outfits called ''sokutai'' [for men] and 'junihitoe' {for woman} date back to the Heian Era,'' regarded as a golden period in Japanese culture, said Keizo Suzuki, head of the Kinomo museum in the outskirts of Tokyo.

There is no set rule in the number of layers, though outgoing empress Michiko wore nine robes during her husband's enthronement.

Masuko is likely to choose her own colours but similar motifs to those donned by Michiko in 1989.

Michiko's outfit was dominated by a rich red robe, its sleeves and bottom visible underneath multiple layers of varying lengths, topped by a cream overcoat with light purple lapels and patterning.

Mosako's hair will be sculpted into a style that sweeps and out to the sides with a long ponytail extending from the back and a large golden hairpiece pinned above her forehead.

The elaborate traditional outfit, which can be hard to walk in because of its weight, is rarely seen outside imperial rituals and weddings.

The Sacred Treasures : A key ritual in the enthronement process is the handover of the ''three sacred treasures'' - imperial regalia said to date date back more than a millenium and have been bequeathed  to the imperial line by the sun goddess Ameaterasu.

The treasures are the ''Yata no Kagami'', a mirror. ''Kusanagi no Turugi'', a sword and the ''Yasakni no Magatama,'' an unspecified jewel.

The possession of the ''three sacred treasures is considered crucial evidence of an emperor's legitimacy, but there are no photos and even the emperor cannot see them.

''We do not know exactly what they are like,'' said  Eiichi Miyashiro, a senior journalist at the Asahi Shimbun newspaper and royal expert.

The treasure will be phased over in a ceremony held on May 1, which the new emperor attends in  Western-style clothes and is off-limits for female royals.

During the ceremony, a replica sword and the original jewel will be handed over, wrapped in cloth. Both are kept at the palace, along with replica mirror  not used in the ceremony.

With respectful dedication to the People of Japan, Students, Professors and Teachers, and then the world.

See Ya all prepare for Great Global Elections and ''register'' on The World Students Society : wssciw.blogspot.com and Twitter-!E-WOW! - the Ecosystem 2011:
