How a sweet little cutie pie he is! But all the Japanese Imperial children are really beatiful.

Royalblog has an article with some pictures about the holiday at the Imperial Villa in Hayama:

Quote:
Prince Hisahito enjoys a break in Hayama

Little Prince Hisahito of Japan is enjoying a holiday at the Imperial Villa in Hayama, a resort some 50 kilometres south of Tokyo, at the entrance of the Miura Peninsula.

The Villa, one of four the Imperial family uses across Japan, provides a place of rest and recuperation for the royals. Hayama is surrounded by the sea and the mountains where nature is rich. It is a place of scenic beauty and warm climate

After this article I want ask where is this rivalry or hate between brothers? It looks that both cprincely and princely families have good relationships about which we doesn't know.

As far as we know, there is no an open feud between Princes. At the same time, I doubt they have cloudless relationship. Let us not forget about the key concept of Japanese culture: preserving harmony and face.

Here is another article on the birthday press conference giving a detail of it that shows that it is still not all harmony in the imperial family:

Japan News and Forum - Prince Akishino turns 43, expresses joy for his son's growth

"Prince Akishino also touched on a comment made earlier this year by Imperial Household Agency chief Shingo Haketa on the crown prince.
In late February, Haketa said Crown Prince Naruhito's visits to Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko had not increased despite the crown prince's previous comment that he would arrange more opportunities to meet them at the Imperial Palace. Emperor Akihito has displayed disappointment over having few opportunities to meet the crown prince's family.
''I understand what the agency chief intended to say was that he hopes that the crown prince respects what he had said before,'' Prince Akishino said. ''I believe we, including myself, have to keep in mind that the words we ourselves uttered must be cherished.'' "


IMO, by this sentence, prince Akishino seems to publicly admonish his brother to be true to his word – which includes his hinting at the fact that this is at all necessary which means that, in his opinion, Naruhito has not been as good as his word in the past.
Be that as it may, we also see in the fact that the younger brother is telling the elder what to do (which disagrees with Confucian rules, no matter what the elder brother may have done) that, in Akishinos eyes, Naruhito has definitely lost his superior position as the elder since not he, but Akishino is the father of the heir.

I am not quite sure about it as I do not speak Japanese but this seems to include parts of the latest press conference (I am sorry that it is appearing twice - I do not know how to mend it...):

I really enjoy watching this branch of the family interacting with each other. And a little personal ethnic pride in the Bulgarian pictures just posted ...

Why all the dark clothes? It looks like there's some kind of official mourning going on.

Mermaid -- that is strange. I have no idea, as the exhibit was in Japan, as the Thracian treasures have been traveling the world ...

On a side note, Japan and Bulgaria have very good relations as many Japanese have been buying retirement homes in Bulgaria. Here are some links to articles in English about the visit:

Features - Japanese Prince to Open A Museum of Thracian Culture in Bulgaria - Standart

Bulgaria Japan's Prince Akishino Opens Thracian Treasures Exhibit in Tokyo: Japan's Prince Akishino, Bulgaria President Open Thracian Treasures Exhibit

This new museum that Japan is helping build is 10 miles away from my ancestral village.
