The Coronation of His Imperial Majesty

Supplementing the previous post, below is the full footage of the Coronation of Emperor Naruhito from October 2019. It’s quite long, very quiet, and it’s entirely raw footage; no subtitles, no commentary, which is frankly how I’d prefer it. The full beauty and austerity of the ceremony can come through without some hack trying to explain to me what it means and how I should feel about it. Well worth watching if you have any taste for that sort of thing.
