Japan’s National Day – United States Department of State

Japan’s National Day – United States Department of State

On behalf of the government of the United States and the American people, I extend my congratulations to the people of Japan on the occasion of His Majesty the Emperor’s 64th birthday.

The people of Japan have no greater friend than America. Our steadfast alliance, now also in its 64th year, continues to serve as the cornerstone of peace and security in the region and, increasingly, around the world. Anchored by our shared values and shared vision, and sustained through strong people-to-people ties, there is little we cannot achieve as we stand together, shoulder-to-shoulder.

May the Reiwa Era continue to bring health and prosperity to the people of Japan.
