Kiko looks so cute in her traditional Japanese Kimono but those shoes look so uncomfortable and difficult to walk in. It looks like the trip was a success. Nice to see Constantijn and Laurentien too.

Prince Hisahito is so adorable! He looks curious and serious when he patted and held the animals.

Joining the above opinions, I have to say that Prince Hisahito is an adorable little boy. It is great to see Prince Akishino and Princess Kiko participating in various activities with their son.

Thanks for sharing the video!
It is nice to see Prince Akishino and his family. Princess Mako and Princess Kako are all grown-up. Princess Kiko looked impeccable. At the same time, I could not help noticing that Prince Hisahito is the main focus of the video.

Japan's Prince Akishino (2nd L), his wife Princess Kiko (R) and their children Princess Mako (L), Princess Kako (C) and Prince Hisahito stroll through the Akasaka Imperial Precincts in Tokyo November 8, 2009 in this photo released by the Imperial Household Agency of Japan. A smaller imperial family would be less of a burden on Japan's finances, said the prince who stands second in line to the Chrysanthemum Throne. Akishino's comments, made in a news conference to mark his 44th birthday on November 30, 2009, came as Japan's deeply indebted government struggles to cut back on record budget requests of 95 trillion yen ($1,097 billion) while trying to avert a slide back into recession.

Give royal family say in its role: Akishino

Prince Akishino, ahead of his 44th birthday on Monday, said Imperial Familymembers should be involved in the debate over the ideal future role of Japan's royalty.
"I think it might be necessary to have the process of listening to the opinions of the Crown Prince and other parties concerned," Prince Akishino, second in line to the Chrysanthemum Throne after Crown Prince Naruhito, said at a news conference last Wednesday that was embargoed until Monday.

HIH Prince Akisino and his daughter HIH Princess Akishino-no-miya Mako will depart Narita airport on March 23rd and visit Laos.
HIH the Prince had to cancel his private visit to Thailand due to the red shirts' protests in Bangkok.
The Prince had been scheduled to leave Japan on Wednesday and stay in Thailand until March 23rd and then join up with his 18-year-old daughter, Princess Mako, to visit Laos until March 28th.

The Prince Akishino and the Princess Mako departure from Narita airport for the research trip to Laos.
Short video from Fuji News Network

HIH the Prince will 'continue research on the relationship between humans and wild chickens,' presumably in connection with the spread of diseases such as avian influenza.

Japan's Prince Akishino and his daughter Princess Mako on Wednesday kicked off a private four-day visit to communist Laos that this year marked the 55th anniversary of diplomatic relations with Japan.
According to the Lao Foreign Ministry, Akishino was scheduled to pay a courtesy call on Lao President Choummaly Sayasone at the Horkham Presidential Palace in Vientiane Wednesday to receive an Honorary Medal of the Lao People's Democratic Republic.
On Thursday, the prince is to leave for Luang Namtha province to further his private research on the relationship between humans and wild chickens, presumably in connection with the spread of diseases such as avian influenza.
He is scheduled to depart Saturday.

I wonder if princess Mako would be seen more in official duties now that she is 18. Would be nice.

I find it interesting that Akishino took his daughter on this trip. Maybe they are starting to introduce her to public life. I think it's a nice thing if they are. The more family members that can help with public duties the better.

I believe that both Princess Mako and Princess Kako have been undertaking some official engagements alongside their parents. They are not highly publicised.
