Princess Takamado was in Brazil last week. Her Imperial Highness visited the Japanese team, in the city of Itú (state of São Paulo), and attended a reception in her honor offered by the Governor of the State of Rio Grande do Norte, at Potegi Palace.

In the city of Natal (state of Rio Grande do Norte), the Princess watched the game between Japan and Greece.

The farewell ceremony was touching. Princess Noriko looked beautiful in the traditional dress and the white silk dress.

The white silk dress is also traditional and is of the same type of material worn by Crown Princess Masako, Princess Kiko and Empress Michiko on their wedding days. The brocade type pattern depicts the stylised image of a stork/crane which is symbolic for luck and longevity.
Princess Noriko looked enchanting.

The additional information is very much appreciated.
Princess Noriko's white ensemble was elegant. The Japanese are keen on intricate understated details.
On different note, it is probably the last time Princess Noriko wore her tiara.

Will she be allowed to keep the orders that was bestowed on her after she marries? Or does she forfeit them, since she got them as a member of the imperial family?

According to Wikipedia, the only order she has is Grand Cordon of the Order of the Precious Crown, which was also held by Princess Sayako. Princess Syako is listed as a former member of that order, I presume it will be the same for Princess Noriko.
Other former members according to Wikipedia are Atsuko Ikeda (Akihito's sister),
Takako Shimazu (Akihito's sister)
Yasuko Konoe (Mikasa's daughter)
Masako Sen (Mikasa's daughter)

You're very welcome. Yes, the white ensemble was exceptionally elegant, none of it was contrived or over done, yet it wasn't old fashioned and would have looked fine on any young bride for her wedding. The images of Princess Noriko wearing her tiara, jewels and order will have to be treasured as I doubt she will ever wear them again.
I agree, the Japanese use intricate understated details very well for practically everything- clothes, food, art, houses etc. On top of that, each detail will likely have meaning and be symbolic but not in a showy way. It is very clever, because few things in Japanese design look out of place in the modern world even though they might be steeped in tradition.

Like in most European countries, this is not the actual wedding. The only legal one is the one before the municipal registrar. This can be done as small or as grand as the couple wishes (exactly like in Europe). No ceremony of any kind is required under Japanese Law (exactly like in Europe again).

Traditional families attach great importance to the Shinto rites. The more elaborate the wedding, the more elaborate the ceremonies. It can vary from a farewell ceremony to a welcome ceremony. But there are also ceremonies when brides meet the groom "for the first time" (arranged marriages). Modern Japanese women will object against a lot of these ceremonies because it is very much about promises made by the groom to act as a good husband and head of the family. The bride has to promise, again and again, to be a loyal, faithful, obedient and subservient wife to her husband, her whole life long.

Princess Noriko marries son of Izumo Taisha priest, relinquishes royal status | The Japan Times
Quote:
IZUMO, SHIMANE PREF. – Princess Noriko on Sunday married the eldest son of the head priest of the Izumo Taisha grand shrine in Shimane Prefecture, thereby relinquishing her Imperial status.

The 26-year-old princess, a daughter of the late Prince Takamado, Emperor Akihito’s cousin, and Kunimaro Senge, 41, were wed at the shrine where his family has been in charge of Shinto rituals for generations, following a tradition adopted by female members of the Imperial family.

Twenty-one people, including the princess’ mother, Princess Hisako, elder sister, Princess Tsuguko, and younger sister, Princess Ayako, as well as the Senge’s parents and various relatives, attended the wedding.
