In East Asia, the diamond jubilee coincides with the traditional sixty-year sexagenary cycle, which is held in special importance despite not being called a "diamond jubilee."
Monarchs such as Kangxi, Qianlong, and Hirohito held celebrations for their sixtieth year of reign, as did national governments like the People's Republic of China (2009) and the Republic of Korea (2005).
