Photos of the daughters of Emperor Hirohito and Empress Nagako from Corbis

#1: The Three Daughters of Japan's Emperor and Empress. Tokyo, Japan. Recent photo of the three young daughters of Emperor Hirohito and Empress Nagako Kuni. Left to right: Princess Atsuko Yorinomiya, who was born March 7, 1931; Princess Kasuko Takanomiya, born Sept. 30, 1929; and Princess Shigeko Terunomiya, born Dec. 6, 1925. Another daughter, Princess Tachiko Hisa, born Dec. 10, 1927, died March 7, 1928. Photo taken on Feb 23, 1933.

#2: Barefoot Princess. Tokyo, Japan: Princess Kazuko Take, 19-year-old third daughter of Emperor Hirohito and Empress Nagako, sweeps her own room. She moved from the Imperial Palace to the residence of the former Grand Chamberlain Saburo Hyakutake to learn all about housekeeping. June 29, 1948.

#3: Emperor's Daughter Weds Commoner. Tokyo, Japan: Emperor Hirohito's eldest single daughter, Princess Taka, 19, and 27-year-old commoner Toshimichi Takatsukasa were married by seven Shinto priests, May 20, at a private family wedding attended by Emperor Hirohito and the Empress Nagako (right). Ceremony was held in the Western-style Tokyo residence of Prince Takamatsu, brother of the Emperor. Groom is a collector at the Government Railway Museum, Tokyo. May 20, 1950.

#4: Japanese Princess Becomes Commoner. Tokyo, Japan: Seen after a centuries-old wedding ceremony held at the stately Korin Mansion here are, (left to right), newlywed former Princess Suga of Japan, who now becomes plain Mrs. Takako Shimazu. Her parents Emperor Hirohito and Empress Nagako, and the bridegroom, Hisanaga Shimazu, a commoner bank employee. The 21-year-old youngest daughter of the Emperor and Empress thus left behind the stilted, ritualistic imperial court to become a commoner housewife who will live with her mother-in-law.

I think this was during the marriage of Prince Naruhito and Princess Masako in 1993 before a reception.

thank you for the Coronation Crown Pic.
It is most unusual to see a proper Japanese Imperial Crown, or even a representation of one.

Question: who was the 114th Emperor, and what were the years of his reign?

thanks,
Warren

I think so too. It is most unusual to see.
now might not wear a crown like that, because the method of the coronation was extremely changed in 1890's.
I don't know...

The 114th emperor's name is emperor Nakamikado, his first name was Yasuhito.
He reigned for 26 years (from July 27, 1709 to April 13, 1735).

* old pictures of Princess Sakiko Kaya *

She was born in 1903 as the 2nd daughter of Prince Kaya, she is empress Kojun(mother of the present Emperor) cousin.
and she married the prince Yamashina in 1922, but she and her baby died of the big earthquake that occurred on Tokyo in 1923.
it was a great shock to prince as husband, he couldn't attend official events after that. it is sad story...

#1. Her childhood 1910s.
#2. with her cousin, princess Satoko Kuni(aunt of the present Emperor). 1920s
#3. Her wedding day, wearing the traditional dress at July 19, 1922.



* old pictures of Princes Yamashina *
they are younger brother of Princess Sakiko Kaya's husband.

#4. Prince Yoshimaro Yamashina (1900-1989) in 1920s
#5,6. at interview in 1972 from Yomiuri news
He set up Yamashina Institute for Ornithology, it is where princess Nori(princess Sayako) worked. He very poured his fortune for ornithology, and he received the 4th Delacour Medal, sometimes called the Nobel Prize of ornithology in 1977.

#7. Prince Fujimaro, Hagimaro, Shigemaro Yamashina in 1920s
Prince Fujimaro Yamashina(L, 1905-1978) he graduated not from Gakushuin university made for the imperial family, but from Tokyo university for the first time as prince. it was good news because this university is very renowned.

Prince Shigemaro Yamashina(R, 1908-1947) married a marquis Hosokawa's daughter, She is Princess Yasuko Mikasa's husband's aunt.the genealogy of the Imperial family is very complicated, so I often get confused... @_@

their mother, Princess Hisako Yamashina's photo is in the link at #9
