Imperial Robes

Can someone hook me up with some websites or actual photos that contain images of the Family wearing their traditional robes?

Have a look at our wedding forum for any of the Imperial weddings and you should see them in their traditional robes. Also, there's a photo of Empress Teimei in her coronation robes in the historical picture poll (which closed yesterday).

At wikipedia you can see them in their robes. At least I found them there from Emperor Komei til Prince Akishino.

Ah, okay.

You see, I've already got a vast collection stored away at photobucket of these sorts of pics. I think it is between 35-40 pics. I just wanted to see if I could wrap up my collection by finding any others.

There's a photo in one of the issues of Majesty magazine showing Empress Michiko dressed for her husband's enthronement ceremony in 1989. Do you have a copy of that one?

Just curious, is there any special significance in the difference of coulours/patterns between the wedding robes between different members of the impirial family? For example, between the Crown Prince & Crown Prince and Prince Akishino & Princess Kiko, their wedding robes are differnt in colour/pattern, is there any special reason for that besides the difference in rank?

It may have to do with the time of year they got married. The colour combinations have a seasonal significance, so that might explain the different colours. It could be something as simple as the personal preference of the bride, but I suspect it's more symbolic.

The outfits worn by Emperor Akihito, Empress Michiko, CP Naruhito and CPss Masako are very similar to the outfits worn by these Japanese Dolls, which are displayed during the Hina Matsuri Festival:

This outfit is similar to the one that was worn by Prince Shotoku (C. 574 - 622), also known as Shotoku Taishi in Japanese:
