It is truly wonderful that Crown Princess Masako is allowed to participate in official engagements alongside her husband.

Hi Abbie, those video links expires very soon like within a day or two after it's released, so the next time when you would like to see those videos you'll need to see it within that time period.
Meanwhile you can watch the newest video of the imperial family below. Enjoy!!!!

Mandyy,

I TRIED to view these other videos, that are in Yahoo-Japan.

My problem is this: There is a lot of Japanese on the Site. I don't speak or read the language. I am sure the videos are still up on the Site, but I have NO IDEA what Japanese part of the Site to click on, to see them!

I just see a lot of Japanese and NO designation of where to click to see Videos, Mandyy.
I hope this makes sense.

Thanks,

-- Abbie

Hi Abbie, those videos are already taken out from the website.
I posted them on Nov. 8th so I guess you'll have to watch them on the 9th, the latest. After that they continue to upload other news video as the day progresses so I guess they are all gone when u viewed them on the 13th.

I've moved the discussion about Princess Masako's health and future options to this thread:

http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...sako-8826.html

so we can keep the current thread on topic and can continue the very interesting discussion about Princess Masako over there.

Smile Nice

... to see Masako getting back into the SWING of things!

By the way, did she go to Holland for Mental Health Treatment, recently?

Someone, here spoke of she and Naruhito going to The Netherlands, for a "private" visit and I am wondering if anyting came out in The Media about that ...

Anyone?

Thank you,

-- Abbie

If Crown Princess Masako did have some medical treatment in Netherlands, only IHA would know about it. Of course, IHA is unlikely to comment on this controversial subject.

Yes, I understand that IT / The IHA won't be forthcoming.

I was just asking IF anyone here saw anything, about her receiving treatment abroad, from a reputable Journalist or something ... I wasn't expecting the IHA to rise to the occasion and proffer an explanation as to why Masako might have left Japan for a time, such is the STIGMATA that still comes with being "mentally ill" anywhere, but especially in Japanese High Society.

Right you are pointing out the stigmata attached to issues related individual mental state. Even the reputable sources will avoid discussing this awkward situation, especially if it involves Crown Princely couple.

Masako didn't go to The Netherlands for treatment, her parents live there. She spent time being a tourist, she visited her parents, spent time with her sister and brother-in-law who live in Switzerland and came to The Netherlands. Masako and family went to wildlife park, museums and also spent time with the Dutch royals. A dinner with was organised with Maxima and Willem-Alexander and the Belgian royals Philippe and Mathilde. ( Naruhito and Masako are probably closed to the Belgian royals, they attended their wedding, also World cup ( soccer games) in Japan together, and visted an aquarium together in Japan.
Queen Beatrix invited the Japanese CP couple, a way I suppose for them to have a 'normal' holiday, she gave them her private home to stay in. A small villa in the middle of a lake.

There is an enormous stigma in Japan about mental illness, not just Japanese high society but regular people too. Depression or any kind of mental illness is not discussed, so it's not surprising that Masako's condition isn't discussed. Japan is the only country in the world to have the phenomenen of the "hikkokomori' these are young people who lock themselves away in their rooms and refuse to have any contact with family or leave their rooms. Some can stay isolated for up to 20 years! Social workers who try and find these young people and work with them believe there are something like a million hikkokomori in Japan. That's a million young people, basically withdrawn from the world and their parents leave food outside their rooms for them and don't try to get any treatment or keep the fact that they have a child with what's a mental illness a secret, due to the stigma and shame of mental illness. So really it's no surprise that Masako's illness isn't reported as such.
Although I am surprised by the information that the IHA press office has given out, that she's on medication and receiving counselling. That's incredibly open of them by Japanese standards.

I have recently read a book about the dutch crown prince, and it says that he and Naruhito are great friends, and, moreover, have a special interest in the water issue in common. (You understand: they are concerned that all people in the whole world have enough water and the water be clean and healthy etc.)

And besides I suppose that the atmosphere in the Netherlands must be especially relaxing for Naruhito and Masako. In Willem-Alexanderエs generation there were only sons, and it was not a problem, and now his children are only daughters, and there still is no problem... What a wonderful life this could be....
