Thanks iceflower! Getty Images updated with the Prince Mikasa Foundation Honorary Presidential ceremony at the Sakip Sabanci Museum in Istanbul, Turkey. Princess Akiko has been honorary president since March 2017 although her position was announced this year.

"Prince Mikasa Foundation, which is devoted to three generations of the Mikasa Family, my grandfather, father and me, was established in 2017 with the permission of the Turkish Government to provide continuous support for the study of Japanese Institute of Anatolian Archeology," Akiko said.

"It is honorable to accept the presidency in foundation as a member of the Mikasa Family," she added.

In 1998, Japanese Institute of Anatolian Archaeology was established as an affiliated institution in the central province of Kirsehir. [...]

Back on August 29th, Princess Akiko and students participated in weeding a rice field. (I assume the same farm where they planted rice in May). They had to be careful not to pull out the rice plants; weeding will make harvesting easier. Afterwards, they experienced "straw-beating" to prepare straw to be made into rope and other products.

On October 13th, Princess Akiko delivered a lecture at "The Tale of Genji Seminar" at The Tale of Genji Museum in Uji, Kyoto Prefecture. The city’s Board of Education hosted the seminar and about 100 people attended.

The princess spoke about how to enjoy classical literature and the new insights she gained during her time at Oxford University. After a lecture by Japanese scholar, historian, and literary researcher Donald Keene, she decided to read "The Tale of Genji" in its original text and found beauty that was lost in modern Japanese translations.

On October 16th, Princess Akiko delivered a lecture for the special exhibition "Meiji 150 Years Anniversary - The Blossoming of Imperial Culture" at the Museum of Kyoto.

About 200 people listened to the transition of women's clothes from Empress Shōken's time to Heisei. Akiko would like to cherish what the Imperial house protects and adapt to the times. Her paper on court fashion is also published in the exhibition catalog. The exhibition is open until November 25th.

I wish the exhibition could come overseas. I'd love to see it.

Princess Akiko's academic career and research is focused on Japanese culture and history. She also established an organization, Shinyusha, to teach the next generation about Japanese culture. I'm sure the upcoming abdication will be special/momentous for everyone yet I wonder what Akiko thinks about it and if the abdication/succession will become research topics.


Princess Nobuko has a cold and cancelled a 3-day visit to Ibaraki Prefecture. She was supposed to attend events for Sakuragawa City and Chikusei City new hospital from October 13-15.

Wishing the Princess a speedy recovery!

ETA: ANN video of Princess Akiko getting her honorary doctorate.

She recounted difficulties in research life. She became depressed after her father, the late Prince Tomohito, said he didn't understand what she was doing. Her grandfather, the late Prince Mikasa, also a historian, encouraged her to continue.
