I Ketut Surajaya
Abstract: In August 2016, Emperor Heisei (Akihito) declared his intention to resign from the Imperial Throne. Emperor Akihito was crowned as the 124th emperor in November 1990. The event of Akihito & #039, s coronation ceremony on 12 November 1990 was very important because he was the first of a new imperial succession since the late Emperor Hirohito (Showa Emperor) was crowned in 1926, following the Meiji Constitution. The traditional sacral ceremony of Crown Prince Akihito & #039, s coronation took place under the 1947 Constitution, a period of Peaceful State of Japan, in which the Emperor & #039, s position was only as a symbol of the unifying nation. The resignation plan of Emperor Akihito from the Chrysanthemum Throne was a new event, especially in dimension of culture and politic which occurred for the first time after 200 years, when Kokaku emperor resigned from the throne in 1817. The study was based on history approach, ideology, political, social and cultural issues related to the existence of current Empire
