Thanks for the photos!
The Princesses looked lovely as usual. White silk used for Princess Kiko's and her daughter's dresses is amazing.

Imperial Family of Japan Current Events 2: June 2008 -

FINALLY!!

I have been looking for pictures of the New Year's Reception all month and these are the first I've seen. Thank you so much for them.

A sweetheart neckline can be so flattering and also makes a lovely frame for a statement necklace and, as we all know, the Japanese Royal Ladies w/out a doubt have.

The Imperial Family received Indonesia's President Joko Widodo and his wife Iriana today, March 23, 2015. Some nice pics of them feeding carps swimming in a pond at the Ninomaru garden at the Imperial Palace were made as well.
I especially like the pic of Empress Michiko and the President's wife holding hands (pic 4).

It is surprising to see Mrs Widodo holding Empress Michiko's hands. It might be viewed as a breach of the protocol. It is great to see Emperor Akihito greeting guests. This means he is doing well.
Empress Michiko and Princess Kiko look absolutely wonderful in kimonos.

As you know, the IHA is very particular and pedantic about the photos they release.
