No, not really . Sarkozy is above all a former head of State. President Hollande was asked but has declined due to a scheduling conflict.
The First Lady is expected to travel with the President to the French overseas territories next week.

I had been wondering about this. I think an argument could be made either way (either postponing or going ahead with the parade) and it's interesting that apparently the decision appears to be coming down on the postpone side.

Come on, this is a coronation-state-dinner - of course there will be tiaras, orders and breathtaking dresses. No doubt about that. It´s just a bit a shame that due the last typhoon that the state drive of the emperor and empress will be postponed until november...

Tiaras will be worn on coronation day (after the actual ceremony) at the banquet in the evening.

I think the government made the right call, not only on practical grounds but as an expression of the Emperor's sympathy for the victims and survivors.

But I also understand the decision not to postpone the ceremony and banquet; the logistical issues in rescheduling visitors from virtually every country in the world must be a nightmare.

This postponement was inevitable, and certainly the right decision for a multitude of reasons. A possibly fortunate and unplanned benefit might be that it will give the Empress some time to recover a bit from the other enthronement activities--spreading out the stress a little.

On October 18th, the Imperial family attended another rehearsal for the enthronement ceremony. Emperor Naruhito, Empress Masako, Crown Prince Akishino, Crown Princess Kiko, Princess Mako, and Princess Kako were seen entering the Imperial Palace around 2:30pm.

Emperor Naruhito and Empress Masako also greeted Emperor Emeritus Akihito and Empress Emerita Michiko at Fukiage Sento Imperial Palace ahead of the enthronement.

It's been decided Emperor Emeritus Akihito and Empress Emerita Michiko will attend the tea party with foreign royalty hosted by Emperor Naruhito and Empress Masako at Akasaka Imperial Palace on October 23.

Cabinet's enthronement gift unveiled | NHK WORLD-JAPAN News
Quote:
[...] The sculpture was made by the head of the Cultural Affairs Agency.

Agency chief and metalwork artist Ryohei Miyata handed the sculpture to Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Friday.

Titled "Springen," meaning "to jump" in German, the 45-centimeter-high artwork depicts dolphins swimming dynamically amid soaring ocean waves.

Miyata said dolphins are his lifelong motif. He said he wanted to create an art object that conveys a message of peace and hope, as the nation makes a fresh start in the new Reiwa era.

Each of the 2,000 guests at the enthronement will receive photos of Emperor Naruhito and Empress Masako, a photo album of the Imperial family/succession, and a map of Tokyo. The Imperial couple have already taken official photos in traditional clothing.

Does that mean they already stay in Japan for the enthronement and won´t return to the N.lands before?
If so, they must be spending some private time, perhaps with the emperor and empress, in Japan.
