Japan is ahead of Europe time zone, they're almost on the 5th of April.

I wonder why there isn't any more pictures right now, it's 11pm already. The state dinner already happened.

EDIT:
Someone said that the welcome ceremony is on Wednesday morning, then why the official program listed it for today?

I believe both the welcome reception and the state dinner will be on Wednesday. That is why there aren't any pictures.

letizia looked quite tired, understandably, on her arrival to japan. i guess this reminds us that kings and queens are also humans - their hair looks just as messed up as ours after we fly long haul and their eyes look as tired as ours :) good thinking to give them a bit of rest today before the state visit starts tomorrow.

where are they staying? are they guests of the emperors at the palace, maybe, as it will happen in the state visit to the UK where they will stay in buckingham palace as guests of the queen?

My guess is they’re staying at Akasaka Palace (aka State Guest House)

I must admit that I laughed (a bit) when I saw the very tall Felipe with the short Emperor/Empress and Crown Prince.

From the Spanish royal family channel:

This video from the meeting with the Imperial Family was missing. I love the warmth between F&L and the CP couple. It has always seemed to me that Naruhito and Masako have a very friendly relationship with several European royals of their generation:


Reception at the Spanish Embassy:



Gala Dinner:

Floral tiara for Letizia and the blue dress from the SV from Peru in 2015. As expected, no tiara for the Empress.

It seems the Empress has also stopped wearing Orders as doesn't wear her spanish Order like for the State visit from Belgium. She however wore her dutch Order at the State Visit from the Netherlands.

She wears the miniature of the Order of Charles III, if I'm not mistaken.

After looking at the pics from the belgian State visit i wonder why there where no hats at the offical welcome Ceremony in the morning. I actually hoped that Letizia would wear a hat as the japanese imperial ladies usually wear them.

The pics from this banquet were a bit sparse, with no closer pics of the crown princely couple or the Akishinos. The Mikasa and Takamado ladies are hardly recognizable, though on the wide shot you can see several blurred spots that indicate that several ladies are wearing tiaras.
