Thanks. Early June must be a tough time for the Mikasa family. June 8th is the second anniversary of Prince Katsura's death.

Found video of Prince Tomohito's 4th anniversary memorial:

On June 7th, Princess Akiko visited the Hidden Treasures from Afghanistan exhibit at the Tokyo National Museum. Princesses Nobuko and Hisako visited the exhibit in April.

Also, Princess Akiko on rice cultivation in Asahi. (I guess it's a monthly article she's writing?)

Indeed let's hope she'll have a speed recovery! In the best of cases shingles is a nuisance, but usually it is very very painful.

On June 22, the IHA reported Prince Mikasa remains hospitalized at St. Luke's International Hospital. Although the pneumonia has subsided, the Prince will stay as a precaution due his advanced age and because his heart function has reduced a little. Prince Mikasa is working on rehabilitation by moving his limbs in bed and standing up from his wheelchair.

I see the byline is Princess Akiko rather than a "name" such as Mikasa no miya Akiko. Do the imperial family members habitually use their titles professionally?
