Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko hosted a tea on Monday afternoon for fifteen people who were designated as Persons of Cultural Merits for the current fiscal year, based on their cultural or scientific contributions to society. The recipients include legendary "anime" movie director Hayao Miyazaki, 71, kabuki star Matsumoto Koshiro, 70, poet and novelist Takashi Tsujii, 85, and Naohiro Asao, 80, a historian on Japan's early modern period.
The crown prince and Prince and Princess Akishino attended the event.

Thanks for the photos!
The Japanese Imperial family looked perfect as usual. Furisode kimonos worn by Imperial Princesses were lovely.

The Emperor and the Empress received the French President Franois Hollande (and yes with his life partner Valrie Trierweiler as well) for a 3 days state visit to Japan.
