IFC METROPOL Tokyo Office Representative Kenzi Shugekawa was awarded the Order of the Rising Sun, 3rd Class (Gold Rays with Neck Ribbon), during a solemn ceremony held in the residence of the prime minister of Japan on April 13, 2009. 
According to the official presentation, the order was awarded for Kenzi Shugekawa’s longstanding merit in state service, including in his capacity as deputy of Japan’s upper chamber of parliament.  After the awards ceremony, Kenzi Shugekawa was received in the Imperial Palace by the Emperor Akihito of Japan, who personally expressed his gratitude for Kenzi Shugekawa’s substantial contribution to the country’s development.
The Order of the Rising Sun is the second-most prestigious Japanese decoration after the Order of the Chrysanthemum.  It was created on April 10, 1875 by decree of the Council of State.  The order has eight classes (with 1st Class being the highest).  It is awarded for both military as well as civil merit.
The first Russian, and one of the first Europeans, to receive the Order of the Rising Sun was Rear Admiral Vsevolod Fyodorovich Rudnev, who was captain of the cruiser Varyag.
