    1. What do you mean? The ceremony? The dress code? Anything else? If all this matters to the Imperial Family of Japan, and I'm quite sure it does, then, yes, it is necessary. Simple as that.

  3. Es horrible. Este vestuario está fuera de época. Además los trajes están mal confeccionados o cortados . No tienen por dónde cogerlos . Para eso, que se pongan el tradicional por lo menos es más bonito.

  4. I hope the Empress is not overdoing things and pushing herself too much. It is always wonderful to see her, but her health is a worry.

  5. Masako Looks tired. They looks old in the tailleurs.

  6. I think everyone is beautifully dressed for this clearly very solemn occasion. However, I do not recognize the woman who appears next to Naruhito; she does not look like Masako. If it is Masako, I would say she is perhaps either tired (as another commenter has suggested), or reacting to an allergen that has caused her cheeks and eyes to swell.
