I like parts of the cabinet's enthronement gift very much, but the overall effect is rather rigid, so while there may be an intent to embody peace and hope, I think the strongest impression is of "order." An interesting psychological blip, the difference between what was intended and what the end result was.

It would be interesting to know what Maxima and WA will be doing before the enthronement. I wouldn't be surprised if there was a t least some private time with the Emperor and Empress--on the other hand, Naruhito and Masako can't possibly have much free time so close to the enthronement, so perhaps not?

What are the enthronement times? And where can you see live?

The plane is befitting the King and Queen, complete with porcelain and crystalware aboard, but I dislike the grey, white, blue and red livery. I do not understand the idea behind it, unless is the standard livery for all the new State's VIP airplanes (there are two more of this type 737 Business Jet in the pipeline to replace the Fokker 100 and the three Gulfstreams) flying the Cabinet and the top of the armed forces

The King and Queen are privately befriended with the imperial couple. I think they will have some private encounters indeed.

a very busy agenda for WA and maxima who are travelling to japan following their state visit to india; similarly so for felipe and letizia who hosted the princess of asturias awards in spain, and are now off to japan and will go to south korea on state visit directly afterwards. at exciting as it may be, being a royal does sound exhausting. :)

WA and maxima are good friends with the emperor and empress - i am certain that TIH will welcome them for a short get together, as any friend would, despite them being surely extremely busy due to the celebrations of the enthronement.

i am less sure as to what they will do with other royal guests with whom they may not have such a close relationship.

I wouldn't be surprised if the princesses are with them in Japan. It's fall break this week. So, they could have left Friday night and arrived on Saturday night and meet their parents in Japan; and spend the week exploring the country - and probably spending some time with (Naruhito, Masako and) Aiko - with Willem-Alexander and Máxima attending the inauguration ceremony on Tuesday. If they return next weekend, they'll be back in time for school.

I'm also checking the Prime Minister's English and Japanese twitter and YouTube. The PM or his team tweeted live streaming info for the abdication and succession ceremonies in April/May.

TV Tokyo already setup a YouTube live stream link for the enthronement but I don't know if it's accessible for all countries. It's not available to US right now but maybe TV Tokyo will allow tomorrow? I've seen some of their regular videos become available for US later.

ETA: Bad weather may force changes to emperor's enthronement ceremony - Kyodo News
Quote:
[....]

The emperor will declare his enthronement in the "Sokuirei Seiden no gi" -- an ancient ceremony equivalent to a coronation -- from an elevated dais within the Imperial Palace in Tokyo before some 2,000 guests in adjoining hallways. Under the current plan, ceremonial officials carrying swords and bows, together with drum and gong players, will line up outside in the courtyard, which is to be decorated with colorful flags and spears.

But the officials may have to move inside to the hallways while the flags, of varying sizes, may be removed altogether if the weather is bad. A high chance of rain has been forecast for Tokyo on Tuesday.

[...]

The clothing to be donned by the ceremonial officials and the objects they hold are vulnerable to rain, while the flags may fly away in strong winds. The agency is therefore considering reducing the number of officials and moving them indoors.

Very off topic but I’m not sure why you find this idea so ridiculous-he was an actual airline pilot as we found out after the fact.

I am looking foward to seeing everyone at the upcoming events. Not too much longer.

Mary and Frederik are scheduled to stay in Japan for three days or so.
If they haven't already touched down, they will arrive sometime today.

despite the long flight, letizia (and felipe) both look fresh as a lettuce. i would have thought she'd change clothes to land, but it looks as though she decided against it. i wonder if they have an extra set of 'indoor clothes' for them to travel more comfortably and so that their 'nice' clothes don't get creased whilst they travel and still look great when they land.

Additional live stream info

NHK will live stream on Facebook and Twitter. (They'll probably preempt their regular programming on the NHK website like they did for abdication/succession ceremonies.)

NHK coverage starts at 8:55am and 12:40pm (JST). The morning ritual is private so maybe it's just Imperial family arriving/leaving the Imperial Palace.
