Japanese Imperial Couple Arrive in India

Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko arrived in India on Saturday for their first visit in over 50 years. Empress Michiko unveled a new hat and outfit for her arrival; the hat was one of her regular petite saucers, this time in cream, with a cream and beige hounds tooth check flat bow. Her hat coordinated perfectly with her outfit and she looked very smart.

  1. She is a beautiful lady, and she always looks elegant in whatever she is wearing. However, I cannot warm up to this style of hat. Her hat looks nice with her outfit, but I think it blocks too much of her lovely face. I would have loved to have seen this outfit paired with a cream pillbox or calot.

  2. Wow it is a busy morning here on the royal hats blog! there are a lot of hat’s to catch up on.
    It’s interesting how some royals (like Queen Maxima and Countess Sophie) change the shape and style of their hats a lot. The Empress of Japan has the same style all the time. I really like this hat with her suit and I’m starting to really like the cape jackets she always wears.
