HIH the Princess Akishino Mako was performing her first official engagement solo at inner sanctuary of Ise shinto shrine on November 24th, 2011.
The Princess was praying for the health of HM the Emperor Akihito and paying respect to the Imperial family's ancestors-gods. The Princess has arrived to the shrine with her lady-in-waiting and her father's steward.

Thanks for the updates!
Princess Mako looked lovely. I wonder whether or not she is going to pose in her special furisode for Seijin no Hi.

TIH the Prince and the Princess Akishino and their eldest daughter Princess Mako have introduced the Ambassadors of 12 countries (among them Kenya nd Ghana) to the traditional Japanese duck 'hunting' at Chiba pref. on November 29th, 2011.
The hunter has to try to catch a wild duck with his bare hands, which is quite a challenge. The ducks are to be 'pardoned and released' after the hunting. The Japanese believe, the ducks will fly away and take all the troubles and sorrows with them.

The Princess Mako will take her full-time official engagements as a member of Imperial family from April 16, 2012, after finishing her degree at the university, IHA says.

Princess Kako turns 17

HIH the Princess Akishino-no-miya Kako, the youngest daughter of the Prince and the Princess Akishino, turns 17 years old on December 29th, 2011.
No official photosession for the princess, since she is not a child of monarch or of heir to the throne.
I like this recent photo of the sweet young Princess a lot.

Princess Kako and her parent attend Prince Hisahito's kindergarten on Culture Day - November 3rd, 2011.

He really is! And something about him suggests he has a mischievous streak.


His older sisters look so grown-up; just lovely.
