Thank you for the video clip, Mandyy. Prince Akishino really towers over both his parents, doesn't he? There, I've learned something today. :-)

Despite her age, Empress Michiko is so gracefully and serene.

Thanks for the photos !
It is great to see Crown Princess Masako making a public appearance alongside Crown Prince Naruhito. She looked radiant.:wub::wub::wub: Princess Kiko, who is always impeccable, seemed a bit tired to me. I do not know... perhaps a wrong angle or light was to blame ...

Emperor Akihito Turns 75
TOKYO - DECEMBER 23: Crown Prince Naruhito, Emperor Akihito, Empress Michiko and Prince Akishino wave to the well-wishers celebrating Emperor Akihito's 75th birthday at the Imperial Palace on December 23, 2008 in Tokyo, Japan. The Emperor, who has recently been diagnosed with a stress-related illness, made his first public appearance in a fortnight during today's celebration, where he was greeted by nearly 20000 well-wishers.

It is great that Emperor Akihito did make an appearance with Empress Michiko and Crown Princely couple
. It has been my pleasure to see Crown Princess Masako joining the Imperial Family. A navy-coloured suit and simple pill-box hat (I hope I am correct about the hat) were perfectly chosen.

Princess Masako looks so pretty in her blue outfit!! It's good to see Japanese people greeting their Imperial familiy with such enthusiasm :smile:
Looking at the pictures, it's hard to believe that several members of this family suffer from depression or extreme stress. Masako seems serene and relaxed, I sincerely hope she gets over her problems soon so she can finally live and work the best she can.
