  • Description

    Item title reads: "The old Japan. With its centuries' old Shinto customs-reappears at funeral of Yoshihito, Nippon's 123rd Emperor in direct line."

    Tokyo, Japan

    M/S of a march past of western dignitaries, some with plumed helmets and masses of medals, soldiers with batons held loose, by their sides, Shinto priests, some with tall banners, some carrying ornamental trees, followed by the huge funeral carriage, which looks like a huge caravan decorated with metallic fabric. Finally some mourners are dressed in traditional Japanese dress.

    Note: Japanese ceremony on full parade.
