  • Description

    Prince Hiro, accompanied by his mother, Her Imperial Highness the Crown Princess Michiko, this morning attended the Spring entrance ceremony at Gakushuin (former Peer's school) Kindergarten.

    This Gakushuin or Peer's school was formally opened only for peer's class and Imperial Families, however, after the war, anyone can enter this school if one passes the examination as Japan abolished peer's class system after the war. Princess Michiko wished to send Prince Hiro to Kindergarten where he will be taught like ordinary children. The new class was divided into two classes such as "Cherry blossom" and "Fuji" and Prince Hiro was authorized to enter in the Cherry Blossom class. When Mrs. Ohoguma, school mistress in charge of the Cherry Blossom class called his name "His excellency Prince Naruhito", Prince Hiro answered "Yes sir" in a class room though they decided to call him just simply "Dear Prince" in a class room. 20 children were entered in each classes this year where they will be educated two years before they go to the Primary School.
