Emperor Naruhito Ascends To Throne

Japan got a new emperor on Wednesday.

Emperor Naruhito was presented with the country's imperial treasures — a sword, a mirror, and a jewel — in a ritual at Tokyo's Imperial Palace.

Controversially, the women in his family weren't allowed to go, part of a wider pattern of Japan's royal traditions explicitly favoring men.

The only female guest at the ceremony was Satsuki Katayama, the one woman in Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's cabinet.
