Always a treat to see this family together. CP Masako looks wonderful in that evening suit. The black and white pearls are gorgeous with it.

Crown Prince Naruhito, Crown Princess Masako and Princess Aiko visited a special Leonardo da Vinci exhibition at a museum in Tokyo today, April 5. The exhibition will be held until April 10 to mark the 150th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between Japan and Italy.

Surely a great exhibition, but on the photo it looks like the proud parents only had eyes for their daughter

On April 3rd, the CP couple attended a ceremony Google translates as "the royal court Sandono Festival" within the Imperial Palace. For CP Masako, it was her first court ritual in 7 years.
Source: Sankei's Imperial weekly for 4/9

ETA: The ritual is related to the ceremonies marking the 2600th death of Emperor Jimmu and other Imperial family members attended, see Japan Times' article in English.

CP Naruhito and CP Masako expressed condolences to the victims of the April 14th earthquake.
Source: Page 2 of Sankei's Imperial weekly for 4/16

There was a Gakushuin concert scheduled for April 17th where Princess Aiko and CP Naruhito were supposed to perform. Either the concert or the CP family's appearance was canceled in view of the earthquake damage. (The google translation of Sankei's article wasn't clear...)

Currently, CP Masako is expected at the spring garden party on April 27th and will walk the same route as the autumn garden party.

Also, I was confused in my previous post about Princess Aiko's school concert on the 17th. Turns out, she did perform but her parents' appearance was canceled.

According to Asahi reporter's twitter post (and google translated): "Today is the wedding anniversary of the Crown Prince and his wife. The night has been scheduled dinner that led to the Emperor and Empress and Prince Akishino and his wife at the Crown Prince's Palace. This has been the usual practice every year"

CP Masako is tentatively scheduled for 2 public service events in a 2-week span. Google translate is somewhat confusing.
  • "welfare of the green" in Chiba Prefecture on June 12
  • reconstruction inspection of Iwate Prefecture on June 20 (two days, 1 night)
The article points out that’s significant activity within 2 weeks in 13 years. The last time CP Masako had public service activities over 2 consecutive weeks was March 2003 ( “World Water Forum” and a Kyoto visit). To prepare for the visit, CP Naruhito and CP Masako will learn about the reconstruction efforts by the Permanent Secretary of the reconstruction agency.
