＜＜＜ This woman is so selfish or stupid, I think. So she graduated summa cum laude in economics from Harvard and studied international relations at Oxford. Why could she learn about Japanese Imperial family better??? Her side always uses excuses or blame "imperial householdimperial household said", "Media Said" or "Empress said" blah blah blah.....They started blame Japanese citizen also. Who want wife or friend just like her?? Thing is she is not wife or friend, she is crown princess. Think about it, your country's Queen, Princess or First lady don't wanna do any duties. But, I can go to ski trip and eat dinner with her parents at very expencive restrant. Do you still feel "Poor well educated smart woman"?
What would you think if a princess of a European county always refuses to go to church? and refuses to see her own people? Because that's what Masako is doing in Japan. For the past 15 years ,she has skipped visits to shinto shrines,and religious ceremonies to pray for the welfare of the Japanese people , which happens to be the main duty of the imperial house. She claims she is "ill" and does not appear at annual garden parties , or any other official events.But on the very same day, she is healthy enough to go to restaurants and parties and concerts. She shows up when royals from Europe come to the palace, but never when the guests are from Asia or Africa.(quite a racist, you should say) When there was a palace dinner for the President of Indonesia , she was not only absent, but was enjoying herself at a party at an Embassy of a certain European country. Even after the terrible earthquake and tsunami in 2011, she was very reluctant to visit the area , and when she did, months later, she stayed only an hour.and that once only ( while the Emperor , Empress, and Prince and Princess Akishino, and even royals from abroad have repeatedly visited the area and tried to comfort the victims) She and her husband (the crown prince) spend weeks skiing and months at imperial villas, shutting out the public and blocking traffic wherever they go, requiring to be guarded by thousands of policemen, which does not happen even with the Emperor himself ,who very casually enjoys speaking with commoners.
Crown Princes Masako and Crown Prince Naruhito of Japan: Masako made a rare public appearance in the Netherlands on Tuesday wearing this off-white very covered up gown. Not only was it completely covered up, she had long sleeves, a turtleneck band and release-pleat detail at the skirt section: The entire ensemble--with that pillbox hat--was so 1950's/1960's and from another era. Princess Masako looked like a Couture Nun! Please Masako, I want to see some skin, some youthful exuberance...you're not a 70 year-old woman!
