ETA: Crown princess turns 53, nixes wedding gossip, talks of future: The Asahi Shimbun
Quote:
[...]

The statement was in response to questions submitted by the Imperial Household Agency Press Club, whose request for an individual statement on her 53rd birthday was approved by the Imperial Household Agency in light of the greater responsibility that comes with Kiko's new role as crown princess.

[...]

With regard to the future and marriage plans of her second daughter, Princess Kako, 24, Kiko said, "I expect that she will give it careful consideration and live her life."

Offering kind words about them both, Kiko added, "I hope they have a good life and establish a future course so that people who have supported them as they grew up will rejoice."

Kiko also shared her thoughts on the future of her son Prince Hisahito, second in line to the Chrysanthemum Throne, who celebrated his 13th birthday earlier this month, saying, "I believe that he will give more thought (to his future) as he grows through various experiences and expands his interests."

[...]

In the past, Kiko has only spoken about her thoughts and family when attending Fumihito's birthday news conference, not on her own birthday.

Quote:
A boy of sixteen who lives with his beekeeper father and moved too frequently to have a piano at home, a young woman of twenty who hasn't been able to play since her mother's sudden death when she was thirteen, a music school graduate turned salaryman who is barely under the age limit at 28, a 19-year-old Juilliard student whose musicality and perfect technique make him the favorite to win...these and other geniuses gather for the Yoshigae International Piano Competition in this novel about talent, destiny, and struggling against oneself.
On October 2nd, Crown Prince Akishino traveled to Tomioka, Gunma Prefecture to visit farmers who were commended by the Agricultural Society of Japan. He also visited Tomioka Silk Mill.
