Thanks for posting the article, so she DID wear traditional clothing after all!

It is really great to see the crown prince and princess out again. They look very happy and she looks so nice in the white suit....so glad to see her again.

Three years ago today I was in Tokyo and went to the Imperial Palace to see the Emperor and his family. It was a great day. Here's a link to my description of the day for anyone who might be interested.

Thanks for the photos!
The Imperial family looked nice as usual. It is great to see Princess Mako joining her parent on the balcony. Crown Princess Masako seems to favour the blue ensemble for this public appearance.

Here is a screen shot from one of the videos ROYAL NORWAY has posted above.
http://s27.postimg.org/gckrqaoir/Japan_2015.jpg
From right to left they are the Princess of Akishino, her daughters Princess Mako and Princess Kako (who turned twenty jus on three days ago),
I'm not sure about the lady in the grey dress. Usually this is the position of Princess Hitachi, but this lady doesn't really look like her. Is it Princess Mikasa? She hasn't attended this formal event for years.
Next to her the two Princesses Akiko and Yoko of Mikasa, and in the purple dress the Princess of Takamado, one of her daughters stands on her right side but isn't visible in the pic.


Can someone verify the identity of the lady in grey?

Masako doesn't usually attend this evening. Her health must not be up to it yet.

Oops, of course it is the Princess Akishino, I must have been sleeping when I posted the above. Thanks for your correction, I edited my post above.

The Princess of Mikasa hasn't been seen at this event for years. Afaik she had some health issue. It is good that she seems to be better now.

The Princess has been absent from official duty since 2006 because of stroke and asthma. She was absent from the funeral of her husband in 2012 because of poor health.

She was back on official duty on 1 November 2013, when she supported the people affected by the earthquake on 11 March 2011.

She did the same thing again on 7th November 2014.
