Thanks for the pictures Mandyy. Princess Aiko is adorable! Her little red dress with a white cardigan, so grown-up! I'm glad to see Masako being out in the public eye a little more, now if we could just get that succession law going....

The family is adorable, and I think Naruhito is a GREAT man, for standing up for his wife against all the pesky old-fashioned courtiers. Would be a pity of the throne went to his younger brother-who strikes me as an opportunist. I disliked him for criticising his elder brother in public, for his standing up for his wife.

thanks for the pictures,

P. Aiko is sooo cute, and her parents look happy. but I wonder if she was a little scared of Mickey because she hadn't been exposed to the (classic) Disney characters? Does anybody know if the Imperial Househild control what books, videos, or kiddie programes she gets to see at the palace?

Aiko is such an adorable child. Let's hope that these lovely pictures don't outshine too much the purpose of the CP's trip to Mexico. :)

Do you also get the impression that Aiko must be a very shy little girl? She always looks so serious and never as lighthearted and gleeful as Amalia, for example. Maybe she is influenced by her mother's unhappiness at the court. what do you think?

My guess is that she just hasn't had a lot of exposure to the outside world that's why she seems so serious and shy. The Imperial Family doesn't do a lot of socializing and visits/communication with other people. It has been said that Masako needs the IHA's approval to call her parents. And I don't think Aiko has regular playmates, except for the kids at the National Children's Castle. Hopefully, that will change once she starts kindergarten.

I love the pics of Aiko meeting Mickey Mouse and those seeing her father off to Mexico. Father and daughter look so amazingly alike. Thanks, purple platinum and mandyy!

I bet if Aiko acted like Amalia, the IHA would have a heart attack. The words fun and happiness don't seem to be in their vocabulary. I bet if given the chance, Aiko would seem a lot more joyful and act like a four-year old (she seemed to be more happy in some of her birthday pics). She's adorable but she acts much older than her age. If that's good or not; I don't know.

All the pictures that are released of Aiko are from the IHA press office, she's as animated as Amalia is in photos taken of Aiko when she's not aware of the camera and she's behaving naturally. Her father has taken photos and video which have been released to the media. Aiko's life isn't that isolated, children have been coming to the Togu Palace to play with her since she was a toddler. Photos were released of Aiko and Masako at the palace with other children having a gym class when Aiko was 2 years old. Once she was 3 she started attending a toddler's group outside the palace 3 times a week, again with Masako. She went to the zoo recently with friends and their families, she also had friends with her at the Disney theme parks. She does seem quite shy in public but this is quite the norm with Japanese children as well as solemn expressions when they're posing for photographs.
The IHA don't control what she sees on TV or the books she's exposed to, also Aiko's parents are trying to give make sure she has similar experiences to other children of her generation, hence the trip to Disney.
The IHA is a large organisation, it's all the people who are employed to look after the various palaces, including the historic ones in the old imperial capital of Kyoto. The medical staff at the hospital in the Imperial Palace grounds in Tokyo are IHA, so are all the gardeners, the scientists who work in the science laboratory in the Imperial Palace ground who work with the Emperor in his research into fish. Over 7,000 people are the IHA so, would they all have a heart attack at pictures of Aiko smiling?!

Masako isn't totally isolated from her family. At the height of her breakdown in 2004, Masako left the Togu Palace with Aiko and went and stayed with her mother in her parents' holiday villa in the Nagano area. ( There is also an Imperial holiday villa in the Nagano area but Masako chose to stay with her parents) Masako spent a month with her mother and Aiko before she returned to Tokyo.

Thanks for the info Charlotte. Aiko is animated when unaware of the cameras but she doesn't seem to be as joyful. It may be that Aiko is more shy than other kids her age. I, however, would love to see the day when Aiko shouts "Ja" (in Japanese of course ) to the cameras.
