No chopsticks! FLUNKIES (that's just offensive) rather than delegations. And fine green tea is not bitter. That is all. Hope everyone dries out.

The above post contains photos of Prince William's visit to Japan (Day 1). I wonder why Prince William was sent to tour Japan.

He was sent to open the GREAT exhibit in China and did a China-Japan combo :P

The briefing for the Japan leg of the trip included this:

The programme has a number of themes, not least the importance of UK-Japan commercial and cultural exchange and also how tradition and innovation work together in modern Japan. The programme will also give The Duke the chance to show his personal respects to the thousands of people affected by the earthquake and tsunami of 11th March 2011, as well as to highlight the ongoing need for support for recovery in the affected area.

Full briefing: Our view

He's doing a nice job, albeit I have to say that if Catherine were present it would be more interesting. The clothes and shoes and hair and what-all. Watching him in all the videos and the still poses, I think how it was all likely planned to have them both standing there, Catherine waving by his side. Still, he's doing okay. His smile is warm and feels very genuine. I think he's grown up a lot, to at least have sophisticated to his role in a serious way. He feels comfortable to watch.

I actually think this tour is more benifical this way. The focus, though a bit lesser of it, is on the diplomacy and this is Williams chance to show that he can be a serious, "boring" and proper diplomat for the country in tricky cultures. If Kate was with (and yes, I would love it too) they would interact more with each other and it would be more giggles and fun. This way he can show a more somber (Is that the right word even if event's aren't sad?) side of himself which is an important part in being a future king. Just my five cents :P

Without Kate, the artices do not stay long on the various websites and there are less photos of the various events.

Glad to see :) Do you think we will get to see more pictures from it and meeting with the young prince?

Well said. I agree, especially the part where you indicate that it would be more about William and Catherine's interactions, "giggles and fun". Maybe a day will come when the two of them together can have that joint soberness. (Very interesting how the presence of the woman changes the media interest).

I was watching the video of William in the rain on the boat and have to say, if I were Catherine, I would be glad I was snug at home tending to my pregnancy. I'm a wuss, yes.

I'm pleased to see that the visit is getting some coverage in the mainstream news - I did have my fears that with the absence of Kate it wouldn't surface.

The Japanese Imperial couple, as well as the Crown Prince, seem like they'd be genuinely interesting and pleasant people to talk to.
