Now I see the charming Princess Takamado there, I really hope Tokyo will win today. She is by far the best Ambassador Japan has. Educated in UK and speaks English like a native.

Imperial household should have stayed clear of this debacle. They aren't supposed to be political. Go Istanbul! Go Fukushima, Miyagi and Iwate!

spudman: Princess has no choice when she was ordered by Imperial Household Agency. Only one female delegate from Japan among these men? It could add one or more female sport champs.

Princess Takamado will certainly not be interested in squash, her husband died of heart failure whilst playing in Tokyo in 2002.
