  • Description

    A new palace, standing in spacious grounds at Akasaka, Tokyo, has now been completed for Japan's popular young Crown Prince Akihito and his family - the Crown Princess Michiko and baby Prince Hiro, born last February.

    The Royal marriage a year ago marked a big break with tradition - the Crown Prince's bride was a commoner, and fittingly their Palace also includes many modern-style fittings, while following traditional Japanese styles of Architecture. It is divided into three sections - one of them the living quarters - and all are air-conditioned.

    In the grounds there is a tennis court, a reminder that Prince Akihito met his commoner bride when they were playing tennis. At the Prince's request there is also a Palace laboratory and an enclosure for birds and animals.
