What she is wearing is not a dress. It is a formal Gown, Silk, not nylon or jinken (factory made phony textile)

A Happyt buerthday Kako Naishinno !

@Kaeri: That dress is a shocker!!! Neither traditionally Japanese nor fashionably Western.

Because she is neither Western nor a commoner. What is the traditionally Japanese dress? Have you seen Japanese Inperial House princess' photoes in magazines? Magazines get photo from Kunaicho.

A young woman dressed in an outfit that makes her look middle aged. Poor thing.

She certainly looks like she's up to being a princess. Gotta wonder what her grandmother said to her. Kindest regards, little woman.

She seems like a pretty nice sort of a lass, I hope her old man doesn't mind me saying that she is also rather cute. She is definitely attractive enough to get a job on the TV doing the weather, or something like that. However, I guess she would have to be one of the ones who stays in the studio pointing at the signs on the chart, and not one of the poor sods they stick on the outside to confirm that it is really bloody cold at Hachiko at 7am.

I'm generally against Royal families but Princess Kako looks very elegant. Happy Bday!

people who say this person is pretty are out of their minds. but frankly I'm sick and tired of supporting these people with my tax money, I would rather use that money on myself. These royalties can get a real job like everyone else.

I like her Mona Lisa smile!

She and her sister Mako are pretty cute. They even look like they have a good sense of humor and some personality. I'd let them hang out with me and my crew.

Wow! That's a great picture!
