200-inch monitors will be installed on either side of the balcony used for general public greetings before the abdication, possibly ready by this December for Emperor Akihito's birthday greeting. The installation is based on feedback following record number of visitors at the last two general public events.

For whatever reason Japan twitter discussed Imperial residences today so I thought I'd join in.

East residence of Prince Mikasa (Prince Tomohito's residence)

Screenshots from a recent interview with Princess Akiko

Prince Tomohito in the same room

This Mikasa family photo was taken at Prince Tomohito's residence in 2006 (?)

Prince Akishino's residence (formerly Prince Chichibu's residence. Renovated in 1997 and expanded in 2000)
The 2-story structure on the left are the newer residential quarters while parts of Prince Chichibu's residence on the right is used for official affairs.

Prince Tomohito and Prince Akishino residences are quite close:

Prince Mikasa's residence (red roof) is next to Prince Tomohito's residence:

Prince Takamado residence:

The drawing room we're probably most familiar with; the scene of 20th birthday photos, interviews, and Princess Noriko and Ayako's engagement ceremonies:

Prince Hitachi's residence in Shibuya, Tokyo.
