Emperor Naruhito, 59, acceded to the throne in May after his father, Akihito, became the first monarch to abdicate in two centuries.

Emperor Naruhito and Empress Masako, Harvard-educated former diplomat, waved from an open-top Toyota Century limousine, which cruised through Tokyo streets lined with jubilant spectators as well as police officers, who were out in force.

Tens of thousands of spectators from across the country gathered along the 4.6-km route to watch.
