As said earlier, the elephants were a present from the government/people of Thailand on the occasion of Aiko's birth 4 years ago. The names of the elephants, when translated and combined, mean "rising sun", as a reference to Japan.

Here is a link on an article the elephants and Aiko's birth. http://www.findarticles.com/p/articl...22/ai_89564028

Finally, she was able to see her elephants! :) And this was her first time to visit a zoo!

Japan's four-year-old princess goes to Disneyland
.......Aiko........ held her parents' hands as she was greeted by an entourage of Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Aladdin and Jasmine.

On Monday, it was Disneyland.................Aiko.......... appeared a bit perplexed, if not scared, by the welcome she received by the Magic Kingdom's symbols, Mickey and Minnie Mouse.

She totally looked like she wanted to retreat in that picture where she's greeting Mickey and Minnie- is it me, or did her parents look like they were prodding her forward? I think the only benefit of being in the public eye is not having to worry about taking pictures- someone's always there to document this event or that one for you.

How does the agency that oversees the operations of the Imperial family plan for security at events? It must be difficult, logistically speaking, at a place like Tokyo Disney.

aiko is a very beautiful girl. She look like a normal child not like a imperial princess.
Her parent are doing a great job with the little princess.

Japanese Imperial family, Crown Prince Naruhito, Crown Princess Masako and their daughter Princess Aiko are welcomed by Disney charactors upon arrival at Tokyo DisneySea in Urayasu, suburban of Tokyo, 13 March 2006. Four-year-old Japanese Princess Aiko, the only child of the crown prince, toured Tokyo Disneyland, with her parents hoping to give her some trappings of a normal childhood.

Below are larger photos from Polfoto

Japanese princess meets Mickey Mouse under tight security
................About 1,000 police officers guarded her previously unannounced first excursion to the park, although most dressed casually so as not to ruin the outing for Aiko and other visitors, a police official said.
"They dressed and acted as if they had been ordinary visitors," he said.
About 55,000 people were at Tokyo DisneySea park as the family arrived to the entourage of Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Aladdin and Jasmine. The three went later to the main area of Tokyo Disneyland..............

Very Cute photos of the family.

I must admit that Princess Aiko is growing up fast. She looks tall and more cute to me. I am very happy to see the family in outings like this. I am even more amazed with Princess Masako. I loved the way she looked during the visit to Disneyland. She was happy and relaxed.

Aiko make some new friends in Magic Kingdom
...............Aiko, who is due to start kindergarten in April, seemed a little unsure when the two characters came forward to shake her hand. The youngster shrunk back and clung to her mother's leg at first, but she soon regained her confidence and got into the swing of life inside the walls of the Magic Kingdom.......................

Masako waves to well-wishers after she and her daughter boarded an open-sided bus to take a tour of the theme park.

Japan princess visits Disneyland
A potential heir to Japan's throne, Princess Aiko, has visited Tokyo Disneyland, in a bid to give her the same experiences as other children.

Imperial Household officials said the princess was able to see what children her age get up to, as she prepares to start kindergarten in April. But the princess seemed slightly alarmed by the ordeal.........................

For a young Japanese princess, Disneyland is a rare taste of the real world
FOR any child, Disneyland is a treat. For a young Japanese princess with the ultimate "fast pass", it is even better...................
The Disney trip on Monday was the first time that four-year-old Princess Aiko had been to the Tokyo branch of the fun park, which is, incidentally, the world's busiest. Waits of 120 minutes or more can be avoided only with a "fast pass" that permits queue jumping.......................

Thank you for all the photos, links and thoughts. Seeing Aiko and her parents having fun at the park is great! I also hope to see more of Masako, even in unofficial outings.

Does anyone know what Aiko's day will be like when she starts kindergarten?

It's wonderful to see Aiko and Masako out together and it's especially lovely to see Masako looking relax and happy.

HOwever, on a sepearte note, it's chilling to see the look of fear and confusion in Aiko when all the cameras are pointing at her and there are thousands of people waving and lining the street looking at her - i can't help feel sorry for little Aiko. It must be very tramatic for a 4yr old child.

I agree that it can be traumatic for a young child such as Aiko. However, she does her share of waving, and according to her father, is concerned about all those people standing out in the cold waiting for them to pass by (this happened during the past New Year's Day).... how sweet. I agree that having such a huge crowd - plus a 1,000 strong police force - can indeed be very scary, especially if you're the center of attraction.
