Hirohito, Emperor Shōwa, 124th Emperor of Japan, died on 7 January 1989 and was succeeded by his son Akihito.
In Japan, reigning emperors are known only as “The Emperor”. Hirohito is now referred to primarily by his posthumous name, Shōwa, which is the name of the era coinciding with his reign; for this reason, he is also known as the Shōwa Emperor or Emperor Shōwa.
