Yes! I agree! At least a person who has some kindness in her heart! Yes, both of them looks lovely. I like them both. And I'm very happy that Japans people celebrates their Emperor's 73 Anniversary in such a nice way. So, Monarchy is alive and fresh in Japan, despite that some persons saids, God Thanks!

Vanesa.

No photos of Masako? She's only on the video. Did she ever was in the line-up like Sayako or Kiko?


Lovely video mandyy!
Michiko is a lovely granny.

AND isn't Hishaito the cutest little thing! How adorable.

Why would Masako get all dressed up to go to the New Year's Event, yet not be in the line-up? I know they are monitoring her activity level, but I find this bizarre. Unless I'm mistaken and she is there - I'm just looking at the photos as I can't access the videos.

This picture of her was posted in the Crown Naruhito and Masako Forum.

I remember last year it was the same. She was seen in the Video coming or leaving in the car but was not in the line-up.

A new tiara for Masako.
Until this time she has only one Diamond Tiara from her wedding which before wore Crown Princess Michiko.

The Diamond Halo Tiara wore few times Empress Michiko

Can anyone post larger photo of Kiko from this event?
I mean her tiara which she wore?

Using her health as an excuse, the IHA uses whatever reason they like regarding the duties Masako can or cannot perform. I think they are only manipulating the actions of the Imperial family as part of their own agenda. All events seem contrived to enhance Kiko's position so it would appear as if she is the second lady of the Imperial family instead of Masako.

It definitely appears to be that way. Its a shame...as both Kiko and Masako are great assets to the Imperial Family...in different ways.

I truly don't understand the purpose of her coming and not being in the line up...unless of course, she is participating in the banquet that the press has no access to.

Emperor Akihito leads Japan's New Year celebrations
..."I feel pleased to celebrate the New Year together with you," the 73-year-old monarch told the crowd.
"At the beginning of the year, I wish for the happiness of our nation and peace in the world," he added, as members of his family, including Empress Michiko and Crown Prince Naruhito, lined up along the glassed-in balcony of Chowa-Den (Hall of Lasting Peace).

Japan's Emperor Akihito, and Empress Michiko, appear on the balcony to receive New Year's greetings from well wishers at the Imperial Palace in Tokyo, Tuesday, Jan. 2, 2007. Crown Prince Naruhito, Crown Princess Masako and other Imperial family members are accompanied.......Crown Princess Masako, a 43-year-old Harvard-educated former career diplomat, took part only in the morning sessions as she is still suffering from a stress-related disorder, linked to her struggle to adapt to life in the world's oldest monarchy....Princess Kiko, 40, was to skip two early afternoon appearances as she needed to nurse her newborn son, Prince Hisahito....
