You're welcome! I'm very glad CP Masako is getting better.

The CP couple arrived at the Prefectural Kashiwanoha park of Kashiwa City, Chiba Prefecture in the morning. The opening ceremony was held at the gymnasium of the park and attended by 1400 people.

CP Naruhito's speech included (Google translation): sympathy to the people affected by the disaster in Kumamoto earthquake, protect clean water to as "precious green and source the green, a more new green in order to nurture is to understand the importance of a number of people, it has been stated that a wide range it is important to participate in the exercise."

The CP couple also participated in tree planting.

CP Naruhito and CP Masako visited Iwate Prefecture on June 20-21 to inspect the reconstruction efforts since the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011.

On June 20th, the CP couple arrived at Morioka station in the afternoon and were greeted by 800 people. They visited the town of Iwaizumi and were briefed on its recovery progress. 13 people died from the tsunami. Later, the couple arrived at their hotel in Miyako to learn about that city’s reconstruction from the mayor and governor.

On June 21st, the CP couple walked along the seawall of the Taro district of Miyako City, stopping to bow deeply and to pray for the souls of the victims. Taro district lost over 180 people. The couple also visited Jodogahama Beach Visitor Center of Miyako to encourage survivors. The center has been helping those living in temporary housing and disaster public housing.

I'm quite struck by CP Masako's compassionate and concerned manner toward the end of this video.

Although initially reported as a solo event for CP Naruhito (see his current events thread), CP Masako also attended the 52nd national convention promoting blood donation on July 7th. She last attended this event 13 years ago. In his speech, the Crown Prince hopes blood donation will spread further and mentioned sympathy to the Kumamoto earthquake victims, along with reconstruction hopes as soon as possible.

Lovely! CP Masako seems to be at her most comfortable when she's in conversation. Does anyone know what the medals/orders are that the couple are wearing?

They are Red Cross Membership Medals, I'd say one is for their membership, and the other for their position as Honorary Vice-Presidents.

The IHA announced CP Naruhito, CP Masako, and Princess Aiko will visit Nara and Kyoto on July 21-22 to worship Emperor Jimmu and to stay at the Kyoto Imperial Palace. The CP couple have wished to visit these places with their daughter for some time and it will be Princess Aiko's first visit.

Nara and Kyoto are the former Imperial capitals. Crown Princely couple's pilgrimage, if I may call it so, does not surprise me.
