TOKYO: Japan’s government is considering postponing the celebratory procession for the time being that had been scheduled to take place in Tokyo after the Emperor’s enthronement ceremony on Tuesday next week.

The government says it needs to deal with the extensive damage caused by recent Typhoon Hagibis that killed at least 77 people last week when it lashed wide swathes of Japan with heavy rain and powerful wind, setting off landslides and widespread flooding as rivers burst their banks.

Nine people are missing and 346 were injured.

Meanwhile, the enthronement ceremony, as well as the banquet, will be held as scheduled.

The government said it will decide the date for procession after determining progress in the rescue and relief efforts. (Agencies)
