Have the Princesses Yoko and Hisako experiencing the same problem like Princess Sayako? That&#39;s why they&#39;re not yet married?? Are they very old now, like 40+? Also, why aren&#39;t they wearing the gold sash?
Princess Hiasako, she is the late Prince Takamado&#39;s wife. She is 50 years old now. She has three daughters. (Prince Takamado passed away on November 2002. He was 47 years old.)

Princess Yoko, she is second daughter of Prince Tomohito of Mikasa. (Prince Tomohito of Mikasa, he is Prince Mikasa&#39;s eldest son, and also Emperor Akihito&#39;s cousin.) She is 20 years old now. She was born in 1983. She goes to Gakushuin University in Japan.

Princess Akiko, she is eldest daughter of Prince Tomohito of Mikasa. She is 22 years old now. She was born in 1981. Maybe, she has stayd in GB for going to a school.

Princess Sayako, she is a daughter of Emperor Akihito. She was born in 1969. She is 36 years old now.


Princess Akiko and Yoko, they will not get married for a while since they are a student now. They have not done official duties without the ceremony in the imperial palace yet. I think that they would do official duties more after graduating from a university. Probably, I think that they would confer a decoration when they begin official duties formally. [/b][/quote]
Oh they are young. Sorry, I thought they are all very old now because to me, they look old. Especially, Princess Yoko, the lady who wears a pair of glasses, looks very mature.

Oh, no Jun5, you are not posting too much&#33; I love seeing the posts about Japanese Imperial family, we don&#39;t see much news of them where I live. I especially love the poems Prince Naruhito and Princess Masako wrote about Princess Aiko, they were so touching and loving.

Why in the new year pictures that we cannot see Princess Nobuko (Princess Tomohito of Mikasa)? Was she represented by her daughters??

This is a momentous development in Japan, to pave the way to allow for a female ruler.

And it&#39;s good to see that the majority "pollees" -- whether they are Japanese citizens or politicians are in support of this change.

But if this change is not made to the Imperial House Law, (and in the very far future) what would happen to the Imperial family if (after he succeeds his father) and Naruhito were to pass away and Aiko is the only offspring he and Masako have -- would she succeed her father anyway? Or would the Imperial family end after Naruhito? This latter scenario would be very disappointing if it were the case.

"(AP) - A government panel plans to recommend that Japan amend
a law to let women inherit the Chrysanthemum Throne, a newspaper
reported Sunday, as the imperial family face its most serious
succession crisis in centuries.

The birth in December 2001 of Princess Aiko, the only child of Crown
Prince Naruhito, has generated intense debate over whether the
Imperial Household Law should be changed to allow her one day to
reign.

A lower house panel is leaning toward revising the law and plans to
solicit opinions from experts before submitting its final
recommendations next January, the Mainichi newspaper said.

Panel members were unavailable for comment Sunday. The imperial
family has refused to comment, saying it is a political matter for
the government to decide.

The Imperial Household Law, which was drawn up in 1889 and survived
an overhaul of the country&#39;s constitution after World War II,
dictates that only men can inherit the throne.

However, no boy has been born to the imperial family since the
1960s.

Polls have consistently shown strong support for a revision to let
Aiko take the throne, and both ruling and opposition lawmakers have
voiced tentative support for the change.

Japan last had a reigning empress almost 200 years ago. A total of
eight women have occupied the Chrysanthemum Throne throughout its
1,500 years of documented history. "

I'm with Ipe Tombe. Who are these people anyway and is there a way they can be disbanded? Someone needs to drag them into the 21st century!

This is such a cool magazine as pictures of the imperial family is sooo hard to find and this magazine has got all of it!! Pity that it doesnt shows the content.

I've a question, While other members of the imperial family have got the words "Palace" and "Home" at the end of their official title, howcome only Prince and Princess Tomohito haven't got the two words at the end??? They have another kind of title it seems. A special kind of Prince?
