I wish they'd break protocol for once and hug their parents when seeing them off. I wonder if they have ever hugged each other.

Hugging in public is not Japanese custom. Used to be public kissers and huggers were arrested as perverts. .

Sad to have to wave off family members on a foreign trip. If all families did this there would be chaos at the airport. Why bother? Just go. Other royal families don't do this.
