Royal Family attends school concert
...............Princess Aiko started attending Gakushuin kindergarten earlier this month. Crown Prince Naruhito and Crown Princess Masako said they were glad to hear their daughter kept good company with her friends and had a full life at the kindergarten, according to the Imperial Household Agency.

Just found some old pics of Prince Akishino's girls with their Kindergarten uniform during their graduation from the Gakushuin kindergarten in 1998 and 2001.
From Yomiuri news


Below is one from JIJI press of Aiko's recent entrance to Gakushuin.

According to Kyodo news, the trip of the Crown Prince Family to the Imperial Farm in Tochigi Prefecture from May 3rd-6th was cancelled because Princess Aiko has a cold and is also having a fever. Aiko will stay in Togu Palace to rest for the next few days. If Aiko's fever continues, plans will be made for her to stay home and rest instead of going to Gakushuin kindergarten.

I hope Aiko feels better soon. :) I am also sick right now and it's not fun. :(

Why is this poor child weighed down with bags? Don't they have servants to lug these things around?

Oh, Aiko has several chamberlains in addition to the attendants assigned to her. But since she's attending school, her attendants will only be able to carry their functions to a certain extent when she's in school.

I think Ochan's right - and her parents want her to experience what other kids her age do, so I guess that includes carrying things.

Article from HELLO
.............On that occasion she wore a smart navy jacket with red piping. On Monday, however, the little princess was in a white shirt and navy pinafore, with sports shoes and a plastic container hanging over her shoulder.
Mother and daughter seemed in good spirits for the day out at Shinjuku Gyoen Park. A smiling Masako gave her customary shy wave for waiting photographers, a gesture that was copied by four-year-old Aiko..................

Aiko is a very pretty girl. And I think it will be a pity if she one day would not be Japan emperor.

Great photos, Adry and Mandyy -- thanks for posting them, as always. I think Masako is looking really good these days -- sure hope her outward appearance reflects her inner health.
