Takashimaya in Tokyo unveils a display featuring artifacts associated with the Imperial Couple

If you are in Tokyo in May or June (2023), you may want to check out a Rolls Royce!

This is the Rolls-Royce was used in a wedding of the then Prince Naruhito, who is the current Emperor of Japan, and the then Crown Princess Masako Owada.

As part of their wedding procession, a Rolls-Royce Corniche was used to transport the couple through the streets of Tokyo. The Corniche convertible was adorned with floral decorations and became a symbol of the joyous occasion.

Prince Naruhito and Crown Princess Masako’s wedding was a significant event in Japan, attracting widespread attention and celebration. The use of the Rolls-Royce added to the grandeur and elegance of the occasion.

Apparently after the wedding ceremony, a grand procession was held, allowing the newlyweds to greet and be seen by the public. Prince Naruhito and Crown Princess Masako rode in an open-top Rolls-Royce Corniche for this part of the event. The car was decorated with flowers and ribbons, and it proceeded through the streets of Tokyo, providing an opportunity for well-wishers to catch a glimpse of the royal couple. I have no idea of this since I came in 1998 to Japan and this is sincerely from ChatGPT, so AI might be hallucinating too. Take this with a pinch of salt.

What caught my attention was not the Rolls Royce logo but the Chrysanthemum motif.

Rolls-Royce Corniche used in the wedding procession of Prince Naruhito and Crown Princess Masako had a Chrysanthemum motif. The Chrysanthemum is the national flower of Japan and holds great cultural and symbolic significance in the country.

During the procession, the Rolls-Royce Corniche was adorned with decorative elements, including floral arrangements and ribbons. The Chrysanthemum, being an important national symbol, was incorporated into the decorations of the car. It is common for such ceremonial occasions in Japan to feature the Chrysanthemum as a prominent element to represent the imperial family and Japanese culture.

The inclusion of the Chrysanthemum motif further emphasized the significance of the royal wedding and added a touch of national identity to the procession.
