Japan to name new imperial epoch on April 1

(CNN)It’s the dawning of the age of … something.

Japan will reveal the name of the country’s next era on April 1, as the country prepares for the abdication of Emperor Akihito later this year.
The current Heisei Era began in 1989, when Akihito succeeded his father Emperor Hirohito, who ruled during the Showa period and is now known as the Showa Emperor.
