In Japan, the Emperor is never referred to by his given name, but rather is referred to as "His Majesty the Emperor" which may be shortened to "His Majesty". In writing, the Emperor is also referred to formally as "The Reigning Emperor" . The Era of Akihito's reign bears the name "Heisei", and according to custom he will be renamed "Emperor Heisei" by order of the Cabinet after his death. At the same time, the name of the next era under his successor will also be established. Akihito is the eldest son and the fifth child of Emperor Shōwa (Hirohito) and Empress Kōjun (Nagako) During the American firebombing raids on Tokyo in March 1945, Akihito and his younger brother, Prince Masahito, were evacuated from the city. During the American occupation of Japan following World War II, Prince Akihito was tutored in the English language and Western manners by Elizabeth Gray Vining. He briefly studied at the Department of Political Science at Gakushuin University in Tokyo, though he never received a degree. Although he was Heir-Apparent to the Chrysanthemum Throne from the moment of his birth, Akihito's formal Investiture as Crown Prince was held at the Tokyo Imperial Palace on 10 November 1952. In June 1953, Crown Prince Akihito represented Japan at the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in London.
