The Emperor and Empress visited the National Rehabilitation Center for People with Disabilities in Tokorozawa, Saitama Prefecture. This is an important place in the life of the Japanese. It is the only facility in the country that provides medical care and employment training to people with disabilities on a consistent basis.
I am enjoying this hat departure on Masako, and the deep wine color. I would love to see her default to a brim more often, and the lapel and hatband coordination is a wonderful touch. I also detect a hint of spousal coordination.
What do you think of Masako’s wild hattery?
