Yes a Japense princess can marry but to keep her title she must marry a royal or noble no commoner because then she would lose her royal title.

i would agree with posts

if you getting married to Japan Royals and im sure if your families is rich or not like as heir,noble,baron,etc.

IF Princess married to commoner they will lose the HRH or HIH dues parent's decision they Japan Princess will still known as Princess of Japan without titles.

i'm not sure about still being called a princess after marrying a commoner, i think they will instead use their husbands surname. i also dont think there are any nobles left since the class system was disbanded after wwII.

A Japense princess could marry a foriegn noble or royal if she gets perimission from the monarch so she still keep her royal title.

If that happened, I would bet that the whole IHA would be throwned into total chaos since they have such a fear of lossing the imperial line to such a problem. But perhaps it would be a good thing to shake hings up a bit like this. Would it be even possible?

Total chatos what are you talking about? A Japenese princess is not allowed to be state I don't see that as a problem if the monarch approves of the marriage. It seems wrong to judge someone just because there from another nation and do not even know them and that is what I find not right at all. The imperial family still continue without the princess being she has siblings and they have children.

Stores that the Emperor/ Imperial family patronised?

Stores that the Emperor/ Imperial family patronised?


I'm wondering if there are some specific shops that the Emperor or the imperial family commissioned them to made stuff for the imperial family.

I know that the Muramatsu flute was commissioned made a flute for Princess Masako, I wonder if there's any sword smiths,silk makers or other kind that specifically handle requests from the royal family.

Thanks!

Memoirs of Prince Mikasa?

Hello,

I am trying to get hold of the memoires of Prince Mikasa for some research I'm doing (for a book), but I'm having some trouble tracking them down.

I don't know if they were published in English but even in Japanese would be okay. Not that I speak Japanese - but I can get them translated!

Any idea where I can get hold of them?

Many thanks in advance
Blake

Hello Blake,
HIH the Prince Mikasa's memoirs were not published in English yet. I am pretty sure you have googled these two things, but just in case that they might be of some interest for you:
Library of Congress with it's awesome digital collection, and The Imperial Household Agency. They are both available for e-mail request of a copy of the memoirs, as far as I know.

given names and naming patterns

I'm a big name geek and my recent obsession has been Japanese names. I'm curious about a pattern I've been seeing among the imperial family (besides the -hito and -ko endings) - their names tend to have unusual spellings, and that goes for both the present and past members. Princess Youko (瑶子), for example, uses an unusual character for "You", the same way Empress Kojun's name (良子) is an unusual spelling of Nagako (her name, from my far-from-fluent experience, seems to be read more commonly as Yoshiko or Ryouko). Compare that to, say, former-commoner CP Masako, who uses what I think to be the most common spelling of the name - and there's next to no imperial princess named Masako from recent history (Meji onwards) who uses that spelling. (Of course not everyone: Princess Noriko uses, I think, the most common spelling of her name.) Is there any special meaning to this - a tradition, maybe? What other name patterns do you notice?

All info about the naming traditions of the Imperial and noble families of Japan can be found in these books:

If the OP is talking the Japanese imperial family then the only picture I can find of a dog of theirs is

I thought maybe an Akita, but it doesn't really look like one, I am not certain what it is.

Yup

Yes, I am referring to the Japanese Imperial family. I also could only find a picture. It looks like a really skinny Akita or a large Shiba Inu.

Thanks.

I think 'ko' means child and 'hito' means man/masculine? I think it reflects the historical/traditional Japanese cultural view on the supposed roles and qualities of men and women.
