We should keep in mind that the Japanese royals dress very conservatively. I remember that Elspeth noted that Princess Mako's and Princess Kako's fashion choices on photos released by the IHA are quite matronly. I dare to assume that both Princesses wear, shall we say, trendier outfits in private.

Prince Hisahito enters Kindergarten

The Kindergarten is an Ochanomizu institution, affiliated with Ochanomizu Woman Unversity, wich with the ecxeption of highschool and the university, it's primary and secondary school division are coeducational, and it's considered one of the elite (by means, much sought-after Japanese 'elevator school') and the oldest academic institution in Japan. This is the first time a member of Japanese Royals schooled there, and not Gakushuin. The differences... well, Ochanomizu's entrance and annual fee is twice cheaper . And since the admissions based on highly competitive entrance selections, the environtment are much 'wider', since all students comes from various backgrounds. But the notable distinction in it's kindergarten is, they provided a 3 year program instead of 2, unlike Gakushuin. And according to statement, this is the primary reason his mom and dad decided to participated him there.

You mean Aiko? that she trendierly dressed?
Well, I'm no fashion expert so I determined someone is conservatively dressed if they've never been seen wearing jeans or hoodies .
An so is with Japanese Royals, I'll say Togu family (Aiko, Masako, Naruhito) are conservatively dressed, but in a more sharply manners, like a middle class, metropolitan family wich everybody knows they're well of but keeping modesty about it. And for Akishino families, well..., they're like a parishioners. I do agree that Aiko is more fashionably dressed because her outfits are more 'stand out' and unpredictable, unlike her cousins, but still exerts a conservative demeanor.
And as for Mako's ICU's entrance little-black-suit , it's no doubt won't made her a leading lady. But I guess that's how many Japanese scholars did it. On one video coverage of Jobs and Employment Fair, almost all participants clad in extremely serious gray or black suits...
Overall, the way Japanese Royal's dressed is like transmitting a message that: no need to attract attentions as we're already a much-sought public figures...

Thanks for the photos!
Time flies so fast. I can not believe that it is time for Prince Naruhito to attend the kindergarten. I hope he enjoys learning about new things and playing with other children.

Japanese royal to spend time in Dublin studying English

The imperial Irish visit is part of a mini-tradition: Princess Mako’s grandmother, Empress Michiko, was partly educated in Tokyo by Irish nuns – she studied Irish history, language and literature and is something of a Hibernophile.
Empress Michiko speaks passable Gaelic, plays the harp and has been known to recite I See His Blood Upon The Rose by executed 1916 leader Joseph Plunkett as a party piece, according to Wherever Green is Worn , Tim Pat Coogan’s book on the Irish Diaspora. - Irish Times

My! I didn't know that! Does Empress Michiko speaks some GAELIC??? That's a very rare skill in a Royal. It's common they would speak English or French...but GAELIC? I love Gaelic's sound and songs even if I can't speak it myself.

Congrats, Your Imperial Majesty!

Vanesa.

Little prince takes museum tour

During the tour to the National Museum of Nature and Science in Tokyo's Ueno district Prince Hisahito enjoyed looking around the stuffed animal exhibits and other displays, pointing at a specimen of a flying squirrel hanging from the ceiling and listening to the sound of locusts that streamed from a speaker after a button was pressed.
According to the museum's attendant, Prince Hisahito appeared very interested in the stuffed specimens on display and said of one, "It's big." - Japan Times

Thanks for the photos!
It is nice that photos have been taken in the somewhat casual environment that allows us to see real Prince Hisahito. He appears to be a lively youngster.
