[Japan] Princess Masako makes first official public appearance since January

Crown Princess Masako made her first public appearance outside the palace in about eight months during a cultural event held in Tokyo on Oct. 1.
As the Crown Princess arrived at the National Theater in Tokyo's Chiyoda Ward together with her husband, Crown Prince Naruhito, she greeted other members of the audience with smiles.
The couple attended the 65th National Arts Festival sponsored by the Agency for Cultural Affairs and watched traditional lion dances by Japanese, Korean and Vietnamese performers.
It was her first official appearance since January this year, when she attended a conference held at Tokyo's United Nations University.
