Probably because the official welcome ceremony will be tomorrow and not direct after the arrival.
Is there anything known if CP Masako will atttend the State Banquet tomorrow.

According to Mainichi, CP Masako attended the welcoming ceremony. Google translation:
Quote:
Welcome event of the Belgian Philippe royal couple who came to Japan as a state guest is 11 days, the Imperial Palace, the palace Higashiniwa, the Emperor, the Empress and Crown Prince and his wife was attended.
[…]
11 days in the evening, hosted the royal court banquet at the Imperial Palace.
She attended the official banquet for the Filipino President last year so it's possible she’ll attend tonight. Not sure if any announcement was made that time.

Some welcoming ceremony photos and video:

It looks like Queen Mathilde is wearing the Woolfers tiara. I hope we'll soon see more banquet pic.

I´m really surprised the Queen wore this small, not very spectacular tiara for a visit in an empire. But I guess she knew beforehand the Empress didn´t wear one once again so she didn´t want to "show off"?!
The empress not wearing a tiara possibly because of health reasons might be understandable - but she didn´t wear any decorations at a state banquet while everyone else did, because....?!?

All other princesses wore big jewels. Compared with the imperial princesses, Mathilde was a bit underbejewelled.

They always wear their full Parures with tiara and mirrored necklace. The only exception is the Empress who has stopped wearing tiaras a few years ago on the advice of her doctors. Therefore i find it surprising that Queen Mathilde did nor wear some additional Jewels and a bigger tiara.

I'm pretty sure she knew the Empress would not be wearing a tiara and found it would be rude to wear something bigger.

I really did expect the full version of the "9 Province´s tiara", usually worn in monarchies
like this: http://media.gettyimages.com/photos/...re-id173523009

To me Empress Michiko already looks like a widow without being it.

The Wolfers tiara?

Pity Q Mathilde chose to wear a relatively small tiara; probably not to overpower the Empress.
I was hoping to see a big gun,:-( even hoping to see if she inherited another of Q Fabiola's pieces e.g. The Spanish gift tiara!
Oh well, next time.
