So, looking at the tree, should Japan not revise their constitution, the crown would go to Prince Tomohito of Mikasa? So he'd be the first cousin of the current emperor...

Well, yes, except that he also seems to not have sons, so that'd just be putting off the problem for a few years. As long as they're looking at a female descendant, they may as well look at Princess Aiko as the daughters of Prince Tomihito.

1.Prince Naruhito ,Princess Masako and Princess Aiko went to Nagano.(2005-2-14)
Crown Princess to make 1st official visit outside Tokyo in 15 months
Crown Princess Masako is set to visit Nagano Prefecture in late February to attend the Special Olympics, her first official duty outside Tokyo in nearly 15 months, the Imperial Household Agency said Monday.

Crown Prince Naruhito and Crown Princess Masako who is recovering from a stress-induced illness, will arrive in Nagano Prefecture on Feb. 26, the day the Special Olympics is scheduled to begin.

The Crown Prince will attend the opening ceremony of the Special Olympics, an international sports event primarily for mentally disabled people, while his wife is expected to refrain from being present to avoid unnecessary burden on her schedule. However, the following day she will view a match of floor hockey, a game similar to ice hockey, with her husband.

The Imperial Household Agency deemed that Princess Masako can attend the event after consulting her doctors.

Crown Princess Masako put her official duties on hold after being admitted to hospital in December 2003 to be treated for shingles. In July last year, it was announced that she had suffered from an adjustment disorder.

Crown Prince Naruhito surprised the Japanese public by lashing out at the Imperial Household Agency at a news conference in early May over the poor health of his wife.

"There were moves to deny Masako's career and personality," the Crown Prince said in what was probably the most forthright condemnation an Imperial Family member has made of the agency.

He subsequently issued a statement through the agency in an apparent bid to smooth over the ripples his remarks had caused in Japanese society.

The Princess has recovered considerably from the illness, and joined Emperor Akihito and other Imperial Family members in greeting well-wishers from the Imperial Palace balcony on Jan. 2 this year. It was the first time that she had performed an official duty in 13 months.

Her upcoming visit to Nagano represents her first official duty outside Tokyo since she attended a national athletic meet for handicapped people held in Shizuoka Prefecture in November 2003.

The Special Olympics is scheduled to bring together about 1,900 mentally disabled athletes and some 800 coaches from 86 countries and regions, including the 150-member Japanese delegate. (Compiled from Mainichi and wire reports, Japan, Feb. 14, 2005)

Princess Kiko looks younger than she really is.

She is always smiling...

FEARS FOR MASSAKO AFTER NAGANO TRIP CANCELLED:



1 MARCH 2005

Hopes for the recovery of Japan's Crown Princess Masako were dealt a blow at the weekend after she cancelled a public appearance. The 41-year-old, who has been struggling with emotional difficulties for over a year, had been expected to attend the Special Olympics Winter Games in Nagano.

She cancelled the engagement just a day in advance, however. "It was unfortunate that I cannot go," said the princess. "I am sorry to trouble so many people." Her visit to the mountain city, where she spent a six-day break with her family just last month, was to be her first official trip outside Tokyo since November 2003.

The Imperial Household Agency has confirmed that ill-health was the reason for her cancellation, describing the royal's condition as "inappropriate" for attendance. The princess has been struggling with what minders describe as an "adjustment disorder" for the last 14 months.

Royal experts say the main source of her difficulties has been the intense pressure to provide a male heir. Plans for a constitutional amendment clearing the way for her daughter Aiko to accede to the throne are expected to get the green light, but it seems Masako is still not quite ready to return to public life.
