It is touching to see the emperor smile with so much care and joy! He is probably glad to be able to personally greet his people although if he has been battling with health problems. You can see that he truly loves his people and wants their best.

But I am troubled by the thought of how this imperial balcony will look like at the time when little Hisahito will be his father´s age. In all probability, there will be only standing him and his wife, „lone and lorn“. Their children (supposing they will have any) will be too young, the generation of his sisters, being all girls except him, will have left the imperial family by marriage, and those belonging to the generation of his parents (let alone of his grandparents) will all be over eighty and either dead or too weakened by old age to be able to stand the whole day on a balcony...

They´ll have to do something about this succession law, and soon!! Not so much because I have a problem with Hisahito being the heir (instead of Aiko) but because he cannot do all this by himself. It is too heavy a burden for this little one (even if it is true that he will hopefully be a strong man by that time). At least the grandchildren of the present emperor, Aiko, Mako and Kako, should get the right to stay members of the imperial family even when they marry. Their cousin and brother needs their support.

Is this state of affairs only in the Imperial Family, or is any daughter not considered a member of her birth family if she marries? Is Japan the only country that has this tradition with its princesses? It does seem quite unfair. Hopefully Hisahito will have a very strong and energetic wife!

As you know, the rules in regard to marriages of Princesses have been observed so far (e.g., Mrs. Sayako Kurodo). Upon marrying, a woman becomes a part of her husband's family, which tends to move her own family and their priorities aside. Under such circumstances, daughters-in-law occupy vacated places, so to speak. I do not see any reason for modifying the above rules. At the same time, I do not exclude a possibility of some changes in rules.

Thanks for your quick reply, Al_Bina. It sounds as though the same sorts of rules apply to all Japanese families, not just the Imperial one. Do I understand you correctly? Is it also true of Asian families in general?

The rules I have mentioned apply to the Central Asia/Kazakhstan based on my own experience and Japan based on words of my husband's Japanese grandmother. I think that they are applicable in other parts of Asia as well. At the same time, adherence to these traditional rules is hugely undermined by developments in the socio-ecomomic environment.

You're right ropura, the sultan's daughters and their husbands receive new name/title from the sultan due to the wedding. In Brunei, where the married princesses also keep their royal title while their husbands receive a title from His Majesty.

ropura and el-khanz,
It has been kind of you to share information about the marriage traditions in Brunei and Indonesia. I think that the Japanese Imperial family remains very orthodox in this respect. It appears that the Imperial family has no intentions of enlarging the family by bestowing titles upon future sons-in-law, who are very likely to be commoners.

It's lovely to see Mrs Kuroda attend this event - I had no idea that the IHA had it's own music department!
