Shōwa Hirohito (April 29, 1901 – January 7, 1989) – Emperor of Japan. The years of his reign were called Shōwa (and he himself – the emperor Shōwa), and this era lasted from 1926 to 1989. The name of Hirohito is closely connected with the period of the formation of Japanese imperialism, the rampant expansion of the colonial empire, the war in the Pacific Ocean, the collapse of the militaristic state, the years of post-war devastation and occupation that followed this period of prosperity of the national economy, which came to be called the “Japanese miracle.”
