Thank you for the video clip, Mandyy. Prince Akishino really towers over both his parents, doesn't he? There, I've learned something today. :-)

Despite her age, Empress Michiko is so gracefully and serene.

Thanks for the photos !
It is great to see Crown Princess Masako making a public appearance alongside Crown Prince Naruhito. She looked radiant. Princess Kiko, who is always impeccable, seemed a bit tired to me. I do not know... perhaps a wrong angle or light was to blame ...

Emperor Akihito Turns 75
TOKYO - DECEMBER 23: Crown Prince Naruhito, Emperor Akihito, Empress Michiko and Prince Akishino wave to the well-wishers celebrating Emperor Akihito's 75th birthday at the Imperial Palace on December 23, 2008 in Tokyo, Japan. The Emperor, who has recently been diagnosed with a stress-related illness, made his first public appearance in a fortnight during today's celebration, where he was greeted by nearly 20000 well-wishers.

It is great that Emperor Akihito did make an appearance with Empress Michiko and Crown Princely couple
. It has been my pleasure to see Crown Princess Masako joining the Imperial Family. A navy-coloured suit and simple pill-box hat (I hope I am correct about the hat) were perfectly chosen.

Princess Masako looks so pretty in her blue outfit!! It's good to see Japanese people greeting their Imperial familiy with such enthusiasm
Looking at the pictures, it's hard to believe that several members of this family suffer from depression or extreme stress. Masako seems serene and relaxed, I sincerely hope she gets over her problems soon so she can finally live and work the best she can.
