Princess Kiko looks so dainty with her white hat.

Mirabel 01-31-2011 10:43 PM

I think Kiko is more attractive than Masako.
I admit, I'm hoping she and her husband will be the ones who go to London for the royal wedding this spring; I'd like to see her there.

Prince Hisa****o's YouTube Video 2006-2011
He is really cute!!

Mariko 02-16-2011 10:27 PM

In the above video of Princes Hisahito 2006 - 2011 from 8:37 is the voice of Emperor Akihito.

"He loves insects, and in the autumn, he came to the Biological Laboratory of the Imperial Household and also the gardens of our Residence, and caught grasshoppers and mantes. He is also interested in fruits and enjoyed observing how the grapes were growing in the Biological Laboratory of the Imperial Household and picking persimmons, and so on. On Prince Akishino's birthday, when the Empress showed Hisahito a fragrant karin (Chinese quince) fruit that She had picked in the garden that day, Hisahito went around carrying that heavy fruit very dearly wherever he went; it was a most endearing sight.''

Interesting works associated by Prince Akishino
I just heard about this article that Prince Akisino wrote in the official web site of Zoo and Aquarium. It's Japanese but has a good picture of Prince Akisino. And it is a last summer.

??????? | ????????????? ?????????????

Click 2010 SUMMER with picture of Penguins cover.

On the bottom of black frame on the 4th one, click it again.
Then use magnifying glass with + sign to make a picture big.
There you can see Princes Akisino with a horse.
Message from Nichidousui. Nichidousui stands for abbreviation of "Japan Zoo Aquarium" and Princes Akisino is the president of this association.

He wrote the message for the launch of this magazine.
"Since I was child I always had interest for animals..."

It's really neat to see his care towards animals. He has given so many talks related to care of animals as well as Scholar.
