We, at the Honorary Consulate of the Kingdom of Cambodia in Osaka would like to present our warmest best wishes of happiness, good health and longevity on this auspicious occasion of His Majesty’s 68th birthday.



Since it is King Norodom Sihamoni’s birthday today, here’s a little-known fact about the King himself.



King Norodom Sihamoni was awarded the Japan’s “Collar of the Supreme Order of the Chrysanthemum” on 11 May 2010, making him the first Cambodian King to do so. The “Collar of the Supreme Order of the Chrysanthemum” is Japan’s highest order, and it is the only order presented in the form of a necklace-like ornament. The order is usually presented to members of the Imperial House of Japan, former Japanese prime ministers, as well as foreign head of state/monarchs.
