On October 1st, Princess Hisako and Princess Ayako attended the opening ceremony of the Heart Sutra at the Daikaku-ji Temple in Kyoto. According to tradition, Japan suffered a serious plague and Buddhist monk Kobo Daishi suggested Emperor Saga (786 - 842) personally copy the Buddhist document. Emperor Saga did and the epidemic ended.

The Heart Sutra is displayed to the public once every 60 years and is kept at the Shingyōden hall of the temple. The handwritten sutra will be open until November 30th.

Princess Hisako's got much energy. I'm exhausted following Ayako wedding while she has a packed schedule in and outside of Tokyo the week of her daughter's wedding.


Bit of old news: I discovered Noriko Senge attended BirdLife Spring Gala 2018 at the Ritz-Carlton in Osaka on March 9. Noriko was a "Spring Gala Steering Committee Member." Princess Hisako delivered her speech via phone patch because she was sick with influenza.

Aiming to improve the standards of Japanese education, we founded the Yomiuri Kyoiku Sho (education prize) in 1952. This award is conferred on educators and organizations that actively engage in research or teaching in primary and secondary schools and kindergarten and nursery environments. We also host nationwide contests in essay composition, English-language debate, and scientific research for children and students. Of these, our English debate competition for middle schoolers has continued since 1949 as an effort to improve students' English speaking abilities and foster in them an awareness of international friendship. Princess Hisako of Takamado is president emeritus of the competition.
