So, first this.

More than 300 people are expected to attend, including royals, government and parliament leaders, top judges, heads of local governments and their spouses.

But then this.

The emperor does not speak in this 10-minute ceremony, which is off-limits to female royals.

So, female guests can attend, but not not female royals.

Makes so much sense!!

This is not the case! The overall ceremony, women are allowed to attend. The 10 minute ceremony (where the emperor doesn't speak, that also occurs in private from what I understand) does not allow female royals. Only the close male family members of the emperor are allowed to observe.
