On the morning of September 16, 2020, Princess Mako, Crown Prince Akishino's eldest daughter, attended her first outside event in the last eight months. The Princess visited the 67th Japan Traditional Kogei Exhibition at the Nihombashi Mitsukoshi Main Store in Tokyo's Chuo Ward.

  1. Ah, quel plaisir de revoir la princesse Mako même si nous n'entrevoyons que son petit regard lorsqu'elle répond à une salutation ; toilette simple mais harmonisée avec les perles de ses boucles d'oreilles et du collier !

  2. Gotta love pastel periwinkle, and I also love Mako's subtle eye makeup. With the single strand of pearls and cream purse and gloves (and matching shoes, I hope :-), this is a typically -- and charmingly -- conservative look for the princess.

  3. Pss Mako, looks fabulous. I love her pale blue dress, its a lovely ensemble. Her pearl necklace is the perfect finishing touch, so elegant. Her accessories are well matched and combine well. Her lovely clutch and gloves, superb.

  4. I just have to wonder if she is truly happy or feels an extreme sense of duty to her country and family. The life of a typical young woman her age is very different in dress alone than what she wears to official events, let alone her personal life vs her royal life. I wish there could be some compromise.

    1. The culture of the Japanese imperial family, in terms of most public appearances, is so very formal and that it is normally impossible to tell whether the individual is truly happy; I'm sure that true happiness -- or unhappiness -- is considered private and that keeping those things private is a basic part of the "job". One thing that I think is really unfortunate for young women like Mako is that the number of what traditionally would be considered eligible young men who are appropriate for a princess to meet, court, and marry is (as I understand it) absolutely minuscule.
