On February 7th, Princess Kako visited the exhibition "Treasures from Budapest: European and Hungarian Masterpieces from the Museum of Fine Arts, Budapest and the Hungarian National Gallery: Japan-Hungary Friendship 150th Anniversary" at the National Art Center in Roppongi, Minato, Tokyo.

She officially visited Hungary last September.

There was hardly any Japanese coverage when Princess Tsuguko opened the SAME exhibition with the Prime Minister of Hungary back on December 5... (Takamado thread post #558)

Man found guilty over knife incident at Japanese prince's school - Kyodo News
Quote:
A Japanese court sentenced Friday a 57-year-old man to 18 months in prison, suspended for four years, over an incident last April in which knives were left on Prince Hisahito's classroom desk at a Tokyo junior high school.

Kaoru Hasegawa, a resident of Kyoto, admitted to trespassing and other charges during the first hearing of his case at the Tokyo District Court last month and offered an apology, saying his actions were "reckless" and "unforgivable" without making any reference to his feelings about Japan's imperial system.

[...]

In handing down the sentence, which was in line with prosecutors' demands, Presiding Judge Hideo Nirei said Hasegawa committed the crime "based on a self-righteous desire to draw public attention" and that his actions "caused great anxiety to school officials and significant social impact."

However, the judge said a suspended sentence was given because he has shown remorse.

Since the incident, which occurred days before the emperor's ascension to the throne on May 1 and shocked the Imperial Household Agency and police with its brazenness, authorities and the school operator have tightened security in the area, beefing up camera surveillance and patrols at the school, according to imperial house sources.

I'm glad that the judge did not punish the man harshly simply because the target of the crime was a prince.

I suppose it is only equitable that the IHA is not confining its announcements about trivial illnesses and school absences to Princess Aiko only.

It's unsurprising that the public continues to be indifferent to the shrinking imperial family when, according to the Imperial Household Agency PR and the media coverage, it consists of only a few working members.
Your compensating for the lack of Mikasa/Takamado coverage is much appreciated.

Princess Aiko joining her cousins will increase her experience. I don't know when Empress Masako will take on solo duties again or if a mother-daughter or father-daughter event will happen soon. At the moment, Princess Aiko is limited to accompanying both parents or possibly only her father in the future. There are some events she isn't likely to attend, even if Masako's absent such as Red Cross general meeting, Florence Nightingale Medal ceremony, audiences with world leaders, etc. Maybe Aiko accompanying Princess Hisako could be another option.
Very good points! My thoughts were on Princess Aiko's distant future: If she is still enjoying a full-time working role at the tail end of her father's reign, it may be an uncomfortable transition for her if her uncle or cousin decide to minimize her role, so I hope the relationships remain warm and productive.

Haha, yes. While IHA is often accused of being secretive, I'm puzzled why the agency overshares about colds/flu for minors. I understand for the older royals; a cold/flu is more dangerous for them.

Thank you. Fortunately, both Akiko and Tsuguko have some fans despite the lack of official coverage. I can understand for Akiko since she's more visible as a professor at various universities and has many patronages but Tsuguko doesn't have as much public service.

Sankei Imperial Weekly #632: Princess Mako is now working from home over coronavirus concerns. She works 3 days a week for the JP Tower Museum "Intermediatheque" as a researcher.

On March 6, Princess Mako had an audience with the new ambassador to Bolivia. She visited Bolivia last July to mark 120 years of Japanese migration.

... Although the IHA didn't report about Akiko or Tsuguko's jobs, I assume they are also working from home.

There are rumors in the Japanese tabloids that Princess Mako will move forward with her engagement to Komuro Kei in November. There's several paparazzi photos of Komuro's mom going grocery shopping.
