How cute does Princess Sayako look in this picture?
It's really wonderful to see the informal pictures of the members of the Imperial Family; I'm much more used to the highly formal and traditional ones, so these are just priceless.

I absolutely agree while I have to say that I find her so on nearly all those early pics, here for example (her Chakko-no-gi ceremony).

Emperor Akihito´s grandchildren

Prince Naruhito, Prince Fumihito and Princess Sayako

The imperial family beginning of the nineties
This is a very rare picture because there are also those relatives included who do not officially belong to the imperial family, for example Masako´s parents. Strange though that Princess Mako does not seem to be on the pic. She must have been a toddler at the time. Of course, it would not be easy to get a toddler to hold still to have such a huge picture taken. It seems to me that the two younger daughters of Prince Takamado are missing, too. But I somehow cannot get rid of the feeling that, had Mako been a boy, she´d have made it onto this photo.

The imperial family with little Mako

Article about the imperial family and music (please note the picture of the family concert in 1987 (top right), and Fumihito´s look as he is standing there at the piano – does not seem to particularly appreciate the piece they are playing...


Michiko, Masako and Aiko
