Crown Prince Akishino and six other imperial relatives will attend the state funeral of former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe next week, the Imperial Household Agency announced on Wednesday.

Emperor Naruhito and Empress Masako will not participate in the state-funded ceremony next Tuesday, as it is customary for emperors not to appear at funerals at home or abroad. The couple made a rare exception when they attended Queen Elizabeth II’s state funeral on Monday.
