This is so amazing! The 2nd book has a tie-up with UNICEF and was adapted into a play in Japan and Canada.

Has anyone read/come across them or or seen the play (I know they're for kids, but still....)?
Just found some pics of the books she wrote
#1-3: amazon
#1: Lulie the Iceberg (info about the book from smarter-Lulie is a very brave iceberg with the warmest of hearts. In this enchanting tale, Lulie makes the extraordinary voyage from the Arctic to the Antarctic. Filled with brilliant and imaginative illustrations, "Lulie" is an inspiring story of courage and compassion.)
#3: A book published of their visit to Korea and it's the first diary published of a visit by Imperial Family members to Korea (it has photos and diaries of their visit there in 2002)


Below is link to see parts of the English version of the book (Lulie the Iceberg) inside and some info about Princess Hisako- from what I saw she wrote this book especially to her 3 daughters and all the children of the world

Oh thank you, Mandyy! :) Very nice references and explanations on the books. I will look them up.

Princess Hisako is indeed a credit to the Imperial Family and Japan. She is so amazingly talented and supports a lot of causes.

She is so cute.... (From AP) "The princess wore a football-designed ring and watch and her nails were manicured in blue, Japan's World Cup team's symbol color, red and white of Japan's national flag as well as black, red and yellow of Japan football Association's flag to show her support of the Japan team."

I really want to know more about Princess Takamado but there is so little coverage about her.

What a modern, Imperial Princess! I love the design of her nails. Thanks, fanletizia. :) Good the IHA didn't disapprove :p....well, she is showing support to the team, anyhow.

WLee, I may be wrong but there is quite a lot of coverage on Princess Hisako.... I mean, she is everywhere! She must be the busiest member of the Imperial Family. You may want to look up the IHA's website - her profile is there, as well as a loooooong list of all the causes she supports. It's really astounding. :) Then maybe from that list you can see if you can keep track of her activities and the corresponding press coverages.

Lovely to see both Princesses Hisako and Tsuguko supporting the Japan team. I think Tsuguko takes after her mom-she seems so lively, too. Very nice pic of the children waving Japanese flags.

Princess Hisako looks so alive and energetic. I wish I have her spirit all the time!

WOW!
I can't belive that this Princess belong to JImperial Family:) She and her daughter are so different from the rest of the family!!!

I wonder, maybe the IHA doesn't have so big influence for the (distant) rtelatives of the Emperor?
