"On 5 December, Aiko will visit the Imperial Sanctuaries to pray. She will also dress in formal wear and appear before her parents, the Emperor and Empress, as well as her grandparents, Emperor Emeritus Akihito and Empress Emerita Michiko. Princess Aiko will borrow the tiara from her paternal aunt, Sayako Kuroda (former Princess Sayako), for her coming of age ceremonies; the tiara is being adjusted to fit her head better for the important day. Most Japanese princesses receive a new tiara for their 20th birthday, but the Imperial Household chose not to buy a new tiara for Aiko due to the ongoing health crisis.
Emperor Naruhito will bestow the Grand Cordon of the Order of the Precious Crown at the Imperial Palace on his daughter. "
Aiko will be 20, what happened to the time!?
