Princess Kako is pretty, but that pink suit is too old for her.
Except for color, it is almost a replica of her mother's.

Thanks for the photo!
It is great to see Princess Mako in a casual setting. Does she go to Gakushuin University?

No, she doesn't. The Princess is a student of International Christian University in Tokyo (see post # 197) following the wish of her grandmother the Empress.
She had also visited Ireland and studied English there (see post # 213).

Thanks for the information!
Her Majesty must have been delighted to see her grand-daughter following her recommendation. I was told that the Gakushuin school and the Gakushuin university are the places for the Japanese Imperial family and elite to educate their children. Thus, I presumed that Princess Mako would follow the usual path.

What about Princess Kako?
She must be almost ready for university; does anyone know where she plans to attend?

Princess on course to be our latest royal resident
Quote:
It has been revealed that Princess Mako of Akishino, 20, the eldest grandchild of the Emperor and Empress of Japan and the great-granddaughter of the late Emperor Hirohito, will study in Edinburgh from September. [...] Ewan Leaver, president of Edinburgh University’s Japan Society said he was thrilled at the news. He said: “It’s pretty amazing, I had heard a rumour about it some weeks ago. What an honour for the university to be chosen by such a notable royal. Our society has over 50 members and we meet every Wednesday in The Ale House on Clerk Street. Princess Mako will be made more than welcome if she wishes to attend. We get a lot of students coming to the university from Japan who wish to sample Scottish life and culture. It would be an honour to show her the sights.”

It is not known whether the Princess will have police protection or bodyguards during her stay in Edinburgh but she will not necessarily live in the lap of luxury. In 2010, she spent one-and-a-half months in Ireland for a summer language course, staying with a local family and at a dormitory. [...] Dr Ian Astley, Edinburgh University senior lecturer in Japanese, said he was sure fellow students would make her feel welcome. “We have around 25 students studying Japanese at the university each year. It’s a very popular course and there are many people who understand Japanese so she’ll have plenty of people to speak with.” [...]

Princess Mako should be well aware of just what the Capital has to offer as another Imperial family member, Princess Tsuguko of Takamado, now 26, studied English at Edinburgh University from 2004 to 2008.

Wouldn't it be fun if she met Harry, and ended up married to him?

It might be interesting, but I am not sure how well it would go down in her homeland.

I doubt that Princess Mako will ever do anything like that. If she does, her family and the IHA will not be amused.

It definitely would. But I agree with Albina: this would not happen. I am sure that the IHA and the Japanese government would not like that at all. Remember that during the discussions about the status of the princesses there was the opinion that members of the imperial household should not be allowed to marry foreigners:
Quote:
[Journalist Soichiro Tahara, one of the experts at the hearing] recalled being asked by European journalists a few decades ago why Emperor Akihito married a commoner rather than someone from his class, and why he didn't look abroad if no Japanese women were suitable. "Not once has there been foreign blood in the Imperial family — that is the tradition. I don't think I was able to explain it properly, but I told (the journalists) that Japanese people would not like it, and that I couldn't agree, either," Tahara said.
Japan Times

If Princess Mako insisted on marrying a British foreigner, this could seriously worsen the British-Japanese relations, and I doubt that the queen would allow that.

Mako and Harry would have to elope to the US... (Just kidding, of course. )

Today, Princess Mako of Akishino went to the imperial palace to bid farewell to her grandparents, the emperor and empress. Princess Mako will soon leave Japan, in order to study at the University of Edinburgh from September until May. She also visited one of the Three Palace Sanctuaries, the Kashiko-dokoro shrine that is dedicated to the mythological ancestress of the imperial family, the sun goddess Amaterasu. (Source in Japanese)

The princess is scheduled to depart on Aug. 24.

i always used to think that Kako was more pretty than Mako,but for some reason since Mako turned 20, she became such a beautiful woman.

i loved her white style when she went to say farewell on the imperial palace, i love her hat, where can i find one? i often see royal ladies with that style of hat and always wanted one for me
