Thank you very much such detailed report of the visit!
The visit is going well. It is great that Princess Masako is able to participate in the events.

Excellent report at Luxarazzi: State Visit to Japan, Day 1

The bolero Alexandra wore at the state banquet was worn by GD Maria Teresa.

I can't remember that the Japanese court has ever before allowed such good close-up pics from State Banquets before. Especially the younger Princesses were usually only seen in blurred wide shots. These really good pics delight me, and I hope that they will keeps to this strategy in the future.

I'm not sure it's the IHA restricting photos versus the media focusing on the main royals or media not sharing all photos. Fortunately, Luxembourg's media is being generous. I'm surprised there isn't more of Princess Mako from the Japanese press as this could be one of her last state banquets.

I especially like the father-daughter stroll through Akasaka Palace gardens on November 30th and the Japanese royals gathered on the stairs.

More curtseys. Princess Alexandra probably curtsied more these 3 days than her 26 years.

Another visit to Japan is scheduled for January 2018 to promote the fund industry.

Audiovisual representatives and 3 animation companies promoted Luxembourg productions and renewed contacts made in 2014.

GD Henri had a press conference about the state visit where he describes his special relationship with Japan, happy that Princess Alexandra accompanied him although sad GD Maria Teresa could not, most influenced by JAXA Space Center in Tsukuba, his role in the business environment, and assessment of Japan's space mining efforts.
