Love to see that men are vain, too.

Once I heard that in Japan is quite common or normal that most men are darkening their hair in order to show youth and power.

Were the protocol rules broken?

Thanks for the photos!
Princess Kiko looked amazing recently.

Since the other members of the DIET called Nakai's actions 'extremely rude' I believe the protocol rules were broken by Nakai.

Thanks for clarifying the situation!
An official apology is in order. One should control his/her temper and remain polite.

In the above video of Princes Hisahito 2006 - 2011 from 8:37 is the voice of Emperor Akihito.

"He loves insects, and in the autumn, he came to the Biological Laboratory of the Imperial Household and also the gardens of our Residence, and caught grasshoppers and mantes. He is also interested in fruits and enjoyed observing how the grapes were growing in the Biological Laboratory of the Imperial Household and picking persimmons, and so on. On Prince Akishino's birthday, when the Empress showed Hisahito a fragrant karin (Chinese quince) fruit that She had picked in the garden that day, Hisahito went around carrying that heavy fruit very dearly wherever he went; it was a most endearing sight.''

The part of "Press Conference on the occasion of His Majesty's Birthday (2010) " IHA
