Press Conference on the occasion of Her Majesty's Birthday (Written Answers) (2011)
[...]
Regarding the four grandchildren, in the Akishino family, the eldest daughter Mako is nineteen and the second eldest Kako, sixteen, and in the Crown Prince's family, Aiko, is nine years, and the youngest of the Akishinos, Hisahito, has just turned five.

They all have different personalities of their own, and are all very dear and precious to me. I always look forward to their visits and hope to continue to enjoy and cherish the moments I can spend with them.
[...] Mako, the eldest daughter of Prince and Princess Akishino, will be celebrating her Coming of Age this year. It brings me much joy to see that Mako has grown to be thoughtful and considerate, and true to the name given to her by her parents, a sincere and upright person.

Emperor Akihito hospitalised for bronchitis

Television footage later showed the Emperor arriving by car at the University of Tokyo Hospital accompanied by Empress Michiko.
The emperor will be treated at the hospital only days after his granddaughter Aiko -- the only child of Crown Prince Naruhito and Crown Princess Masako -- was hospitalised there for pneumonia.

That sounds a bit omnious.

Is he otherwise in good health?

Sadly, the IHA rarely give detailed statements so I hope this isn't as gloomy as it sounds. Best wishes for the Emperor.

Akihito: The 125th Emperor of Japan - CNN.com
Japan's 77-year-old emperor is currently in hospital, several days after coming down with a fever, a spokesperson with the Imperial Household Agency says. Emperor Akihito, a ceremonial but revered figure in the Japan, was suffering from a worsening case of bronchitis and the fever he contracted Thursday, according to the spokesperson, who declined to be identified due to the agency's media protocol.
"He appears to be fatigued and has lost some resistance to fight against sickness," the spokesperson said. "To be on the safe side, he was hospitalized (Sunday night) at University of Tokyo Hospital."
It is the emperor's second time in a hospital this year, after getting medical treatment in February for extensive tests of his coronary arteries.
In recent years some analysts believe Akihito's health has been affected by stress.
