    Background: Visnews film from Tokyo Jan 14 shows the Imperial Household Building where Miss Michiko Shoda - fiance of Crown Prince Akihito - takes lessons in court manners, and the Crown Prince's emissary delivering gifts at the Shoda home as a token of Akihito's resolve to marry Miss Shoda.

    The engagement - announced Nov 27 last year - was formally confirmed Jan 14 when the Crown Prince in traditional attire visited three shrines in the Imperial Palace to impart the news to his deceased ancestors.

    At the same time Emperor Hirohito despatched messengers to Grand Shrines and mausolea of former emperors of Japan.

    The wedding date has not been formally announced but is expected to be some time in April.
