The exhibition is called "Momijiyama Imperial Cocoonery and Restoration of Shoso-in Textiles".

Quote:
Sericulture is one of the traditional cultures within the Imperial Household started by Empress Dowager Shoken in 1871. Sericulture has been passed down through the Taisho (1912-1926) and Showa (1926-1989) periods, and now in the Heisei period the tradition has been upheld with great care by the current Empress. In recent years it was discovered that silk from the silkworms raised by Her Majesty, Koishimaru, a species indigenous to Japan and known to produce extremely delicate silk thread was indispensable for the restoration of ancient textiles.
More details see here.

Prince and Princess Akishino to visit Uganda

Quote:
Two members of the Japanese royal family will visit Uganda next month. Among other places, Prince and Princess Akishino will visit Jinja District, although they will spend five days in the country.[...]
“I do not know why they picked Uganda. But this will be their first visit to Africa,” the Ambassador of Japan to Uganda, Mr Kazuo Minagwa, said. [...]
The royal couple’s visit comes just when the two States are planning to commemorate 50 years of diplomatic ties. Uganda mainly exports Nile Perch, coffee, sesame oil and cobalt estimated at $20 million (Shs49.1 billion) to Japan.

HIS Imperial Highness Prince and Her Imperial Highness Princess Akishino of Japan will pay a three day visit to Uganda from tomorrow June 12th to Friday 15, 2012. During the visit, he will also hold talks with the Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni. The Prince's visit to Uganda will also be his first time he is visiting the African continent with Uganda being his first country.

Addressing journalists at the Uganda Media Center in Kampala, the ambassador of Uganda to Japan, Wasswa Biriggwa said the visit will also commemorate the 50th anniversary of the establishment of the diplomatic relations between the two countries. [...]

The Prince and his wife will visit the new River Nile Bridge Project, which will be supported by the Government of Japan and Rice Research and Training Centre at Namulonge which was also supported by Japan. He will also visit Phenix Logistics, a company owned by a Yuichi Kwashiwada a Japanese national, Ashinaga an international organization that supports children orphaned by HIV/AIDS and Uganda Wild Life Center.

The Prince will later be hosted by President Museveni at State House Entebbe where they will discuss various issues about the two countries.

"Japan and Uganda have been enjoying very cordial relations for the last 50 years. This trip is also aimed at strengthening and diplomatic ties between the two nations," Biriggwa noted.

He stressed that Japan has supported Uganda with $1bn in the last five years funding many programmes in various sectors including health, agriculture, electricity, road construction and education among others.

Biriggwa stressed that in spite of the various problems including the massive earthquakes and tsunami Japan expressed in March last year, they did not cut aid to Uganda.

Two more pictures of the same event:

When he was a toddler, Hisahito was grinning most of the time. But it seems that now he starts getting really serious. The same happened to his sisters. (Pic) Does not seem easy to be an imperial child...

So far, I thought that Emperor Kanmu´s mausoleum is near Kyoto. I was not aware that there is a Shinto shrine dedicated to Emperor Kanmu in Nara. While I am certainly no expert regarding Shinto shrines (nor regarding geography), I could not get any info about any such shrine via Google, even if I tried really hard. There is one Kashihara Shrine in Nara Prefecture, but it is dedicated to Japan's first emperor, Emperor Jimmu, as far as I am informed.

Also this Google translation of an Asahi article speaks about the Akishinos „worshiping“ Emperor Jimmu. I would never totally rely on a Google translation for correct information, but I am still asking myself if Getty could have gotten anything wrong there?

(I have seen that Gettyimages says: „KASHIHARA, JAPAN - NOVEMBER 07: Japanese Prince Akishino, Princess Kiko and their son Prince Hisahito, on their way back from their visit to mausoleum of Emperor Kanmu on November 7, 2012 in Kashihara, Nara, Japan.“, and so I suppose that is where you got the info from, Iceflower. )

If anybody has any ideas regarding this matter, I´d very much like to hear them.

A few more pics from the park visit

It seems that Getty indeed made a mistake. This blog also talks of a visit to the mausoleum of Emperor Jimmu.
