[NEWS] Prince Hisahito, set to be 2nd in line to throne, turns 12

Text from The Mainichi

TOKYO (Kyodo) — Prince Hisahito, Emperor Akihito’s grandson and soon-to-be second in line to the Chrysanthemum throne following the abdication of the emperor next spring, turned 12 on Thursday.
After the 84-year-old emperor abdicates next April 30, his eldest son Crown Prince Naruhito will ascend the throne the following day, and his brother Prince Fumihito — the only other member of his generation in the Japanese imperial family — will become first in line to succeed him.
Prince Hisahito, so far the only male of his generation, will then become second in line.
Imperial House Law states that only males with male lineal descent from emperors can ascend the throne.
Prince Hisahito is currently a sixth-grade student at Ochanomizu University Elementary School in Tokyo and keen on learning about the history of war.
On Aug. 10, Prince Hisahito and his mother Princess Kiko visited a cenotaph for the atomic bomb victims in Hiroshima, devastated by a U.S. nuclear bomb on Aug. 6, 1945.
After visiting the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum, the prince talked with an 80-year-old female atomic bomb survivor and wrote a report on what he learned for his homework.
The prince often enjoys playing “hand baseball,” a baseball game without a bat, with his friends after school. He is also interested in studying kanji, as the Chinese characters used in writing Japanese are called.
The imperial family is discussing his education after graduating from elementary school next March. Princess Mako and Princess Kako, the two elder sisters of Prince Hisahito, both have studied abroad.

Text from The Japan Times

LEEDS, ENGLAND – Princess Kako, granddaughter of Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko, has completed a study program at the University of Leeds in England.
The second daughter of Prince Akishino and Princess Kiko left Japan in September last year to study at the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Cultures at the university in West Yorkshire, England, as an exchange student from the International Christian University in Tokyo.
The princess will return to Japan on Friday.
She completed all curriculum requirements, including exams, in early June, according to the Imperial Household Agency. On holidays, she traveled to Spain and Portugal with her friends.
Monday, Princess Kako participated in a photo session at a university theater – now a familiar venue for the 23-year-old princess who took many performing arts classes during the program.
During the session, the princess, wearing a blue dress and a black jacket, listened to the explanations about performing arts from Alan Langlands, the university’s vice chancellor, and Alice O’Grady, head of the School of Performance and Cultural Industries at the university.
