Crown Princess Masako (R) and Crown Prince Naruhito wave as they enter the Imperial Palace in Tokyo on February 8, 2010. A group of doctors announced her condition has vastly improved on February 5, but she needs more time to reach a level that will allow her to expand the scope of her official duties. Masako has suffered stress-induced illness while struggling to adjust to royal life.

It is nice to learn about the progress in treatment of Crown Princess Masako's medical condition. Hopefully she will make a recovery, which will allow her to fully participate in official engagements alongside Crown Prince Naruhito.

Thank you for this information, Kasumi. There could be a genetic predisposition in the family then, although perhaps not in Masako's immediate family. Still, having a fairly close relation commit suicide is itself very stressful, although I don't know whether suicide is considered such a taboo in Japan. It was considered preferable to public embarrassment, wasn't it?

He had the same mental problems during his lifetime. He had committed suicide in 1999.

Yes, Mermaid1962,
You are absolutely right. Jun Etou's suicide was very stressful for Masako's family. The family members are really close to each other. And the situation itself was low key to avoid public attention.

Oh I like that picture very much! Thank you!

Has Masako sama put on a little weight? no I dont mean she's overweight, I just hope she enjoys her food as well as other things in her life!
CP looks delighted whenever Masako sama is next to him. It shows that he loves her very much

The last part of this video is particularly heart-warming, with Princess Aiko's wonderful smile and the family so obviously enjoying one-another's company. I think that the Crown Prince certainly looks younger than his 50 years!

Crown prince, turning 50, to explore future role of imperial family › Japan Today: Japan News and Discussion

Prior to his 50th birthday on Tuesday, Crown Prince Naruhito indicated at a recent press conference his willingness to explore the future role of the imperial household.

‘‘The imperial court has been changing with the times,’’ he told reporters Friday. ‘‘I hope to pursue how the imperial family should be in the future through learning from the past.’‘

Thanks for the article!
Crown Prince Naruhito appears to be determined to realign or attune the ways the Imperial household operates. It remains to be seen whether he succeeds in his mission.

It's going to be very interesting to see what Crown Prince Naruhito does as Emperor. I wonder whether any Imperial Household Agency courtiers are shaking in their shoes after this conference?

I like his statement about continuing to support CP Masako.

I do not think that IHA is shaking in their shoes. When the time comes, they will find right words to persuade a new Emperor into finding the happy medium between changes and the traditional ways. This may take the edge off reforms a new Emperor intends to introduce.
Despite multiple pressures, Crown Prince Naruhito is a man, who stands by his wife. Such loyalty and devotion are truly admirable.

Wonderful to see Masako so well, and surrounded by her family.

No matter how much the IHA tries to get its own way, the officials can't break this family bond.

I suspect that Masako is - or will be - the trump card for the Japanese monarchy, because many women will identify with her difficulties.

If anything, she might, through her dignified acceptance of her illness, be an agent of subtle change in the monarchy.

Thanks for photos! I can not help noting that Princess Aiko as well as her cousins, Princess Mako and Princess Kako, rarely smile on photos.
