On June 12th, the IHA released several photos of Princess Aiko's sericulture work at Akasaka Imperial residence. She has been breeding silkworms since elementary school.

On July 10th, the Imperial Household Agency released more photos of Princess Aiko’s sericulture: cocoons and egg laying for next year’s sericulture.


Based on the cocoon shape and colors, I think Aiko produced Hakken (white ovals, Japanese-Chinese crossbreed) and Ouken (golden ovals, European-Chinese crossbreed) varieties of silk.
