Japanese Imperial Protocol. Meeting, etc.

It has been said that the Japanese Imperial court had complex protocol to rival that of the European courts or even former French monarchy, and that court ceremony took up a lot of time. What today stands of protocol? Are there any English language resources or books on both ancient and current Japanese Imperial protocol? The ones I have found are sparse in detail. Does protocol differ greatly from ancient times?

Some general questions...

What happens when people of various rank meet the Emperor or member of Imperial Family?

How does the Emperor & Empress as well as Imperial Family behave at social events such as balls. Do they even attend or host them?

Is it still considered impolite to look into the face of the Emperor directly?

Are there any grand processions as in Europe?

How do members of the Imperial Household offices behave toward the Emperor?

What are the various ceremonies that were supposed to have taken up so much time of the earlier Imperial Court, and have any carried over to today?
