天皇; 皇帝, 帝王
Explanation:
天皇 (ten'noo)
皇帝 (kootee)
帝王 (teeoo)

The more general terms for "emperor" are "皇帝" (kootee) or "帝王" (teeoo), but, if you want the name of "emperor" in Japan, "天皇" (ten'noo) will be more appropriate.

agree  Manako Ihaya: Actually, 天皇 is the _only_ appropriate way to refer to the modern day Japanese emperor -- certainly not 皇帝 or 帝王。

  -> Correct. But, as general translations for this word, I also gave "皇帝" and "帝王" here.
