The junihitoe is so beautiful and I wish the empress all the luck in wearing it. Hopefully they won’t use a wig or have it properly fitted; the golden hairpiece at the front really digs into the head otherwise.

Well that looks comefortable. And what's with these mysterious symbols no one has seen? A photo would be nice, a jewel that's wrapped in cloth? Like to know if it is a jewel at all and what type of geological type it is? Questions questions. At least there are no women present, why? A replica sword? Did they loose the original? Sounds all a bit made up.
