Abstract: On May 1, 2019, Japan is scheduled to have a new emperor. Emperor Akihito plans to abdicate his throne on April 30, 2019 and Crown Prince Naruhito is in line for succession. With each new emperor a new era name is defined. The Japanese government will announce the name of Japan’s next Imperial era on April 1, 2019 for use by Japanese calendaring schemes. In addition, each era name is assigned a ligature (symbol). This is the z/OS support required for the New Japanese Era.
