This was the second time Horizon attended a traditional Japanese naming ceremony for Mr. and Mrs. Akita – they held a “shinsuishiki” for their first Horizon motoryacht, a 2010 E78 also named “AGORA.”

Horizon Group CEO John Lu was a special guest for the event, along with interior designer Luca Dini, Horizon Japan representative Mr. Shintani and the owners’ family and friends.

During the ceremony, a Shinto priestess wore a formal ritual costume to perform the traditional christening ceremony, and during the blessing ritual, John Lu was invited to hold the branch that represents Shinto and flipped the branch, then bowed and clapped twice to offer worship.

Horizon was honored to be a part of the Akita’s christening ceremony for luxury yacht “AGORA” and give their best wishes to the owner who is always positive to face his life and insist his life philosophy is like at the battlefield. Horizon wish them all the best as they begin their journey with their new Horizon RP105!
