  1. Princesses Nobuko and Hisako did not attend this garden party. Princess Nobuko is in the Netherlands November 5-10; Princess Hisako is visiting Nara and Kyoto November 9-11. Nobuko’s daughters Princesses Akiko and Yoko attended.

  2. All the ladies look so beautiful in their kimonos! I actually enjoy seeing them more in their traditional dress than in “western wear”. They tend to be a bit too monochromatic in western wear, almost like they’re wearing a uniform. They are more colorful and individualistic when wearing their national dress IMHO. The Imperial couple look wonderful!
