I don't think that they actually have their own money. Everything they need is provided for, but they don't have any actual money of their own.

Are the lectures about topics in which the Imperial Family are interested, particularly the Emperor and Empress?

According to the "Imperial Family of Japan" blog that quoted the IHA,
Quote:
The Ceremony of the Kousho Hajime was instituted in 1869 with a “lecture for the New Year” designed for the enlightenment of studies by Emperor Meiji. In those early days, lectures concentrated on Japanese and Chinese texts, and subsequently came to include western texts. From 1953 the explanations in the above-mentioned three fields came to be instituted.

The annual spring garden party at the Akasaka Palace Imperial garden in Tokyo took place today, April 27.

So nice to see Crown Princess Masako attending!

Indeed!
Her health continues to improve. According to Asahi, the Crown Princess spoke to guests for about 5 minutes before leaving.

Another video of the garden party. Mostly commentary while footage repeats of CP Masako's arrival and departure.

Asahi reports the Emperor had lunch with his 3 children on July 23rd. It's the first time any of the family has gathered since news of abdication. The Crown Prince, Prince Akishino, and Mrs. Kuroda arrived at the Imperial Palace around 11:30am.

There's more but the rest of the article requires login. I assume the Empress was also at the luncheon.

Source: Asahi

ETA: video of the arrivals. The description below the video mentions the children stayed about 2 hours.

Thanks for the update!
I wonder what is going to be discussed without spouses and grandchildren. Mrs Kuroda drives herself nowadays, while her brothers have chauffeurs.

On September 2nd, Emperor Akihito invited the Speakers of the House from the G7 nations to tea at the Imperial Palace. CP Naruhito and the vice-chairman of the European Parliament also attended. The Canadian Speaker of the House conveyed sympathies for the damage caused by thypoon No. 10.

The IHA announced budget requests of the 2017 fiscal year budget on August 31st.
  • 2 additional nurses to strengthen the night medical system at the Imperial Palace
  • 1 additional staff member for the Akishino household to help take care of Prince Hisahito
  • Maintenance for Kyoto Imperial Palace (Kyoto Goshouchi). The terrain was expanded this year.
Sankei Imperial Weekly #450 page 2

Does anyone know each Imperial household's number of staff? Or overall IHA employees? I read ChiaraC's post from 2011 that the Crown Prince household has around 50 staff and the Akishinos have around 10.
