    Distinguished Guest
    Her Imperial Highness Princess Takamado

    Her Imperial Highness Princess Hisako Takamado was born in Tokyo and studied at Sacred Heart Girls’ School. When her father was posted to the U.S.A. and to the U.K., the family moved to these countries. She is a graduate of Cambridge University where her subjects were Chinese Studies, Archaeology and Anthropology. She married His Imperial Highness Prince Norihito in 1984 and they were blessed with three daughters. She is the Honorary Patron or President of many organisations including BirdLife International, the International Kyudo Federation and the Japan Football Association. Her hobbies are painting, birdwatching, photography, tennis and kyudo. She is the author of three children’s books including “Lulie the Iceberg” (Kodansha International), “Have Netsuke Will Travel” (Kodansha), a collection of bird photographs “Yori-Dori, Mi-Dori” amongst others.

    Her Imperial Highness Princess Takamado continues to maintain the strong connection to Canada established by HIH the late Prince Takamado, who attended Queen’s University from 1978 to 1981. Their third daughter, Mrs. Ayako Moriya (who renounced her imperial status after marrying a commoner), studied abroad at Camosun College and the University of British Columbia from 2013-2015.

    To commemorate the 90th anniversary of the establishment of Canada’s first diplomatic legation in Japan in 1929, the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada (APF Canada) has invited Her Imperial Highness Princess Takamado to embark on a six-city tour of Canada in August, visiting institutions, organizations and community groups that have worked to strengthen bonds between Canada and Japan, recognizing individuals who have made significant contributions to Canada-Japan relations, and commemorating 90 years of friendship and cooperation. HIH Princess Takamado will visit Toronto, Ottawa, Charlottetown, Edmonton, Vancouver and Victoria.
