 本日,「戦没者を追悼し平和を祈念する日」に当たり,全国戦没者追悼式に臨み,さきの大戦において,かけがえのない命を失った数多くの人々とその遺族を思い,深い悲しみを新たにいたします。

 終戦以来既に72年,国民のたゆみない努力により,今日の我が国の平和と繁栄が築き上げられましたが,苦難に満ちた往時をしのぶとき,感慨は今なお尽きることがありません。

 ここに過去を顧み,深い反省とともに,今後,戦争の惨禍が再び繰り返されないことを切に願い,全国民と共に,戦陣に散り戦禍に倒れた人々に対して,心から追悼の意を表し,世界の平和と我が国の一層の発展を祈ります。



 Address by His Majesty the Emperor on the Occasion of the Memorial Ceremony for the War Dead (August 15, 2017)

 On this Day to Commemorate the War Dead and Pray for Peace, my thoughts are with the numerous people who lost their precious lives in the last war and their bereaved families, as I attend this Memorial Ceremony for the War Dead with a deep and renewed sense of sorrow.

 Seventy-two years have already passed since the end of the war, and our country today enjoys peace and prosperity, thanks to the ceaseless effort made by the people of Japan, but when I look back on the sufferings and tribulations of the past, I cannot help but be overcome with deep emotion.

 Reflecting on our past and bearing in mind the feelings of deep remorse, I earnestly hope that the ravages of war will never be repeated. Together with all of our people, I now pay my heartfelt tribute to all those who lost their lives in the war, both on the battlefields and elsewhere, and pray for world peace and for the continuing development of our country.
