Thanks for the update!
The situation surrounding Emperor Akihito should be addressed by October. I am looking forward to seeing photos of Japanese Princesses.

Some details about the upcoming state visit from Asahi:
October 11 - welcome ceremony, meeting between the reigning couples, and court dinner
October 12 - visit Yuki, Ibaraki Prefecture (accompanied by Imperial couple, I think) and memorial concert

Apparently, visits to Belgium by the Imperial and CP couple were considered but dropped due to terrorist attacks.

Short video of KIng Baudouin's and Queen Fabiola's visit to Japan in 1964.




Another video of King Baudouin and Queen Fabiola apparently arriving in Tokyo after leaving from some unclear location. Interestingly, bowing and curtsying to KIng and Queen are still observed.

The King is going alone and Mr Didier Renders , our Minister of Foreign Affairs is not able to attend . He has to stay in Belgium for belgian politic urgent affairs.(our Budget)
Who will go with the King ? a Minister of State ?. That will be the first time.

"Odd" in which regard, please?

I´m very much looking forward to this particular visit. Other than the Cambridges to Canada there´ll be lots of bling bling and monarchial glamour.
