Princess Kako Pays Respect to Royal Ancestors

Princess Kako visited the royal mausoleums in Hachioji City yesterday. On this visit, she conducted a traditional royal rite of passage and reported her recent coming of age to the spirits of her ancestors Emperor Taisho, Empress Teimei, Emperor Showa, and Empress Kojun, all who were laid to rest at this place. For this somber event, Princess Kako wore a black bowler style hat with slightly upturned brim and a band around the crown.

  1. Princess Kako’s outfit and hat are dignified and appropriate. I do like a good bowler hat, and this is an example of one.

  2. HatQueen, I hope that it was ok for me to share this post with a Royal group that I am a member of. If you would like me to remove the post from my group I will. Thank you for all of your hard work. To the subject at hand, I think Princess Kako looks very appropriate in this choice of hat.
