Thanks for the update!
It is important for the Imperial family to be abreast of the post-earthquake situation and know an extent of the devastation.

They have not visited because.....

After the earthquake, the Emperor and the Empress kept visiting the shelters giving warmth and hope, sharing their sorrows. They preyed for the people. As finally the words came out last week from Mr. Nomura who is the head of the crown family spokesman. According to the CP office their first visit for the devastated area will be beginning of the June to MIYAGI prefecture, and again this visit needs to be weekend date since CP Masako is staying at the school with their daughter Princess Aiko everyday. But as we know also depend on her feeling that day too. They have visited the shelter before but never went to the devastated area. I am wondering why CP Naruhito did not make visit by himself right after the earthquake, even his wife is not able to go. I know his family is having very difficult time but after all he is the CP. I see more and more time goes by he is not able to carry his duty in this critical time in Japan.

I read the same info, and I see that HIH the Crown Prince is able to carry his official duties on. The Crown Prince does his job well.
Inspite your disapproval, Mariko, it is the Crown Prince who will be the next Emperor of Japan. Whatever you will write to express your personal view of the future of Japanese Imperial Family.
I believe this kind of allegations made by you are some kind of black PR against the CP family, aren't they? Please, no more, Mariko.

But isn't it true that conservative elements in Japanese society believe the Crown Prince should step aside?
And that this sentiment is growing?

(I know very little about these policies, and have nothing against the Crown Prince, but this is what I have read). Apparently others agree with Mariko.

Do you have any credible links, Mirabel? Who says 'this sentiment is growing'? I'd like to see some statistics.

I have no statistics; as I said, I do not follow this very closely. But I have read some articles (see link below) that suggests this is the sentiment.

(It is not my intention to offend anyone by this post).

Still, in my opinion, the article has no proof just the journalist's allegations.
An irreproachable answer has been given by Al_bina some time ago.
By the way, can we continue this discussion in the other thread, not in Current Events one?

Japanese Crown Prince Naruhito is welcomed by Japan's ambassador to Germany Takahiro Shinyo as he arrives at the military part of the airport Tegel in Berlin on Tuesday, June 21, 2011.

Visit by Japanese crown prince has Germans studying etiquette - Monsters and Critics

Japan's crown prince Naruhito was officially welcomed to Germany Wednesday, after officials had carefully studied the correct etiquette for dealing with one of the imperial family.
Even German President Christian Wulff exerted himself, stepping up the stairs backward at the presidential palace, Schloss Bellevue, to avoid turning his back on the prince, after diplomats advised that this might be construed as a slight.
Journalists and photographers who covered the ceremonies were coached in the golden rules: do not ask the prince questions; do not photograph him from behind; do not overtake him or walk across his path.
German officials said the visit by Naruhito, to mark the 150th anniversary of diplomatic relations, was a high honour considering that Japan is still recovering from its triple disaster in March: an earthquake, tsunami and radioactive releases.
