Funny how Diana worn so many black and white outfits to Japan and they were only there for 5 days.
There was that white jacket with black collars & black pleated skirt & flying saucer hat that she worn in Washington and many many many other times.
the that black/navy & white suit with the center being white. then the white coatdress with the flounced black collar (first worn Austria April '86).
Kinda interesting!!!

The kimono is very beautiful, very ornate.

Was the puropse of the visit to promote good relation between Japan and Great Britain?

That seems to be the general purpose of official Royal Visits outside the Commonwealth.

On December 20th, Japan's foreign ministry released a photo album and documents of the Prince and Princess of Wales' 1986 visit as part of its disclosure of past diplomatic documents.

Princess Diana was eager to watch sumo during 1986 visit, declassified documents show | The Japan Times
Quote:
[...] a trip to watch professional sumo matches was included in their itinerary following an enthusiastic request from the princess, declassified diplomatic documents showed Wednesday.

During their stay in Japan the royal couple visited the Ryogoku Kokugikan sumo hall in Tokyo on May 11, 1986 [...] and watched four matches including the final bout of the day.

The prince and princess later met with sumo wrestlers Onokuni, who held the sport’s second-highest rank of ozeki at the time, and Konishiki, in the third rank of sekiwake — two of the largest wrestlers. [...]

Before arriving in Japan, while visiting Canada, Princess Diana told the Japanese consul general in Vancouver that her earnest wish to watch sumo was about to be fulfilled, adding that she was looking forward to seeing the traditional sport in Japan, according to the documents.

Confessing that she still had difficulty using chopsticks, she joked that she was thinking of visiting Japan with a knife and a fork in her handbag, the documents showed.
