  1. It is always nice to see the Imperial Family. Empress Masako looks lovely.Pss Aiko's dress is very nice.She is almost as tall as her mother. For Aiko maybe a tiny heel shoe, would be perfect?.

    1. Surprise, surprise! Aiko looks good here! And now she needs some stylish shoes and lighter stockings (if this is a must by Imperial etiquette).

    2. Not easy to understand the situaion with Aiko. Easy thinking would be that she borrows clothing from her mother, for ex.! The press (mentionning also official sources) reported difficulties with her. Ex: Aiko, known as the princess who rarely smiles, had occasionally missed class while in elementary school. She was unable to attend school for a spell in 2010 after being shocked at the “rough behaviour” of some boys in her grade at her primary school. When she eventually returned to class, for a couple of hours a day, her mother had to go with her."
      Also : The teenage daughter of Japan’s Crown Prince Naruhito and Princess Masako has missed one month of school with an unidentified medical complaint, according to the Imperial Household Agency.
      Let's hope she finds her way to self-confidence, why not through appropriate cloth styling. It is nice to see her smiling today, and wishing her the best.

    3. MaryT, August 7, I think that being born the girl who should have been a boy, watching your mother being smashed and spiral down to depression because of this tradition of male heirdom, her guilt over not obliging expectations pressed upon her as crown Princess, all that must have had a very profound influence on Princess Aiko's childhood and youth. Let's hope for the best for this lovely kind , loving family!

    4. MaryT, Aiko is now 17 years old. At 2010 she was 8. Do you really think it is necessary to bring past problems of such a young child with bullying to discus today as her weakness problems. REALLY?

      Also there cannot be a child in Japan who has had and has more mental pressure than princess Aiko. All that expectation of different gender child, being only child of emperor, old fashion etiquette, living in very closed golden gage, possibly being very lonely in her position etc.

  3. The Empress looks lovely, as does Princess Aiko. I think her dress would be more summery if it were a few inches shorter.

  4. Aiko porte une jolie robe ; les cheveux lâchés et les boucles d'oreilles lui vont à ravir... Je la verrais bien avec des petits talons ; ce serait plus élégant !!!

  5. Omg, Aiko looks so stylish and pretty -- the black and white print really pops on her! And her hair is styled quite becomingly. Such a difference from the departure photos, it's astonishing. (True that a low heel would have perfected the look -- but I'm so happy I don't mind!)

    Masako is beautiful and put-together as always, a pleasure to behold.

  7. I thought exactly the same : very nice dress on Princess Aiko, who looks quite the young lady now, but would look even more so with low heels, or wedges.

  8. This outfit is a lot better, than the one she wore a couple of days ago. But the sandals are a big No No.

  9. La robe pour Aïko peut aller, mais les chaussures, my God, vraiment pas seyantes.

  10. Empress Masako looks crisp and smart - her jackets are a bit less boxy and more shaped than other ladies in the family wear, and this gives a more modern look.

    I like the print of Aiko's dress - a bit more dramatic than we have seen before and her earrings are very nice. I don't think the sandals are great but other than that she looks nice. She seems very sweet.

  11. Lovely family.
    They are very quick to return to work after a vacation as usual. Just 4 night vacation.
    I know Japanese people are very hard worker!

  15. I wonder why the daughter is wearing those stockings? It makes her appear much older to have her young legs covered in that fashion.

  16. Yes, some different shoes would have improved Princess Aiko's look immensely. But I like the dress.

  17. The Empress looks wonderful here - relaxed elegance. I don’t think it’s fair to criticize her daughter’s appearance. She’s still a young teenager and finding her way in the world of fashion. I remember some of the goofy things I wore at this age. Thank goodness the world press wasn’t watching me! (V.M.)
