Court chamberlains will place the imperial regalia - a sword and a jewel - and the state and privy seals beside the imperial throne.
Emperor Naruhito ascended the Chrysanthemum Throne on May 1, marking the dawn of the Reiwa (beautiful harmony) Era, when his father, Akihito, 85, abdicated.
But a high chance of rain today means the wet-weather plan may be activated, with the officials moved indoors and the banners removed. This is to protect the ceremonial clothing donned by the officials and the imperial relics they carry, as well as the flags.
