On July 4th, Princess Tsuguko was invited to speak at the "Health Inequality - Think from a global perspective" special lecture at Tokai University. As a member of Japan UNICEF Association's school division, she covered the current state of countries and regions that have serious malnutrition, presented on support programs and results, and discussed sanitary measures.

Tsuguko also spoke about how sports has become an effective means to alleviate conflicts in regions with a strong caste system. In East Timor, martial artist and film star Jackie Chan was invited to demonstrate martial arts, not for killing people but for unity and peace; football clubs in Nepal have reduced caste discrimination.

This made my day. Always thrilled to find news about lesser known Imperial members.

Dolphin show at World Cup sailing event sparks backlash: The Asahi Shimbun
Quote:
[...] At the Sept. 9 opening ceremony of the World Cup Series Enoshima on Enoshima island, dolphins performed jumping tricks in front of sailors and other parties at Enoshima Aquarium near the event venue.

Some competitors from abroad, who are opposed to the capture and display of dolphins, expressed their dismay on Twitter.

“Couldn’t be more embarrassed with what I’m witnessing. We are sailors, and apparently a ‘green sport,’” said a tweet by a competitor [...]

Hirobumi Kawano, president of the Japan Sailing Federation and chairman of the organizing committee, said the dolphin show was intended to be “a surprise that symbolizes Enoshima.”

“We received many positive responses, but it is a sensitive issue on which people from different countries have different opinions,” Kawano said. “We would like to apologize to those who were offended by the show.”

World Sailing, an organizer of the World Cup series and the international governing body for the sport, said in a statement that it was “disappointed” with the performance.

“All content in Opening and Closing Ceremonies of World Sailing events must be pre-approved by World Sailing and no such approval was given nor sought from the Organizing Committee for the show,” the statement read.

[...]
