    A new Emperor of Japan was sworn in on Wednesday, 59-year-old Naruhito, who is expected to continue the legacy of his father by modernizing the imperial family to help maintain its relevance in contemporary Japan. However, he won't be cutting all bonds with tradition, at least when it comes to his official car.
