This article fails to mention the CP family also observes moments of silence on anniversaries of "the end of WWII, Okinawa Memorial Day, and the days when the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were bombed."

The event promoted Japanese traditional culture for embassy people in Japan ahead of Tokyo’s 2020 Olympic and Paralympics Games. 2020 will also be the shrine’s 100th anniversary.

The government is expected to invite Prince and Princess Akishino to the 6th anniversary of the government sponsored Great East Japan Earthquake memorial service on March 11th. The Emperor and Empress attended the past 5 years and it has been decided that’s enough.

I wonder why the government didn't consider inviting CP Naruhito.

ETA: Prince Akishino and Princess Kiko attended the National Convention for Traffic Safety at Bunkyo Civic Hall on January 20th.

I wonder if it foreshadows the Akishinos taking over the emperor and empress's visits to disaster-stricken areas.

Possibly although I think CP Naruhito will also visit disaster areas.

Mainichi's report about the Akishinos invite to the 2011 memorial included the attendance record for 1995's Great Hanshin Earthquake memorials:
  • CP Naruhito and CP Masako attended the 1st and 15th anniversary
  • Prince Akishino and Princess Kiko attended 2nd - 4th anniversaries
  • CP Naruhito attended the 5th anniversary
  • Emperor and Empress attended the 10th and 20th anniversaries
Princess Kiko attended the Tokyo International Quilt Festival at Tokyo dome on January 19th.

Thanks for the update!
Japanese calligraphy is like a poetry. It is ethereal.

On a different note, the lady, who accompanied the couple, has an amazing kimono.

It is nice to see Princess Mako joining her mother to undertake an engagement. I am surprised by pastel-coloured outfits. Don't Imperial Princesses wear grey dresses for temples?
