Did the comment that she would "represent the Emperor at festivals" emanate from Sankei, or the IHA? Would it not be an infringement of the separation of religion and state guaranteed by the Japanese constitution?

Either Ise Shine or Sankei made the comment. Google translation:
Quote:
According to the Jingu Ji administration, in the Ise Jingu shrine wearing the Amaterasu Ogami of the Imperial God, the royal family or the former royal family served as successive priests. [Sayako] prays for his Majesty in February 's Prayer Festival, the monthly festival in June and December, the God Festival in October and the November' s New Festival, praying for grain richness and the peace of the people It is said to be.
Mainichi's English report on her appointment refer to Sayako as the emperor’s representative:
Quote:
Kuroda will visit the shrine as the emperor's representative for festive events including Kanname-sai, held annually in October, in which crops are offered to sun goddess Amaterasu Omikami, the ancestral deity of the imperial family.
According to the constitution, the Emperor is the symbol of "the State and unity of the People" and although he performs duties similar to Head of State, he doesn't actually have the Head of State title. He and the Imperial family already perform Shinto rituals at the Imperial Palace and his elder sisters were his representatives at Ise Shine for decades so infringement doesn't seem to be a concern.

Thanks! Given that the emperor's Shinto rituals are not considered part of his official duties, I suppose the same rule applies to the festivals.

On September 14th, Sayako Kuroda worshipped at Ise Shrine. It is her first duty since becoming supreme priestess in June on the retirement of her aunt, Atsuko Ikeda. Sayako's first festival will be in October.

I think so. She and her husband attended the 2nd wedding reception of Noriko and Kunimaro Senge held in Tokyo. The seating was kinda weird, her mother Hisako and sisters sat in the back. I suppose they already attended the 1st reception in Shimane Prefecture so other family and government invitees (CP couple, Mikasa grandparents, Kurodas, and Prime Minister Abe) got closer seating at the Tokyo reception.

Blurry shot of Noriko's Tokyo reception, the Kurodas are barely visible behind Prince and Princess Mikasa. Princesses Hisako, Tsuguko, and Ayako are at the bottom:

The God festival at Ise Shrine began on October 15th and lasts until the 17th. Sayako Kuroda participated for the first time as supreme priestess, thanking Amaterasu for the harvest, offering rice, mochi, liquor, and praying for prosperity of the Imperial family and peace of the people. Rice harvested at the Imperial Palace was offered. The next festival is November 23rd.

The video was amazing, such a beautiful country, so peaceful and serene. I felt I could almost hear the rain because of the quiet. There was a calming presence about her in the pictures for you could see it in her face. Just a very lovely lady and place to visit someday. Thank you for the info!

Thanks for the update!
It is great to see Mrs Kuroda undertaking a public engagement. Mrs Kuroda is the Grand Priestess of the Ise Shrine. Is there a Grand Priest?

From October 14-17th, Sayako attended the Kanname-sai at Ise Grand Shine in Mie Prefecture. Kanname-sai is the most important ritual of the year; rice grown by the Emperor is offered and dedicated to Amaterasu.

According to Sankei Imperial Weekly #561, she visited Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko on the 18th to report the ritual was completed.
