This marks the emperor’s formal ascencion to the throne in a ceremony that is centuries old.

The previous emperor abdicated the throne, saying he was too old and weak to continue with his duties.

Pres. Pahor will also visit a research institute in Tokyo where Slovenian scientists are working on an antimatter project.
