Japanís Princess Aiko to Attend Summer School in UK

TOKYO Ė Japanís Princess Aiko is set to attend summer school in the United Kingdom, marking her first extended solo stay abroad, state broadcaster NHK reported Thursday.

Sixteen-year-old Aiko, the only child of Crown Prince Naruhito and Crown Princess Masako, plans to attend a course of about three weeksí duration between late July and early August at the prestigious Eton College. There she will board in a dormitory with other students, according to the report.

The course combines education about British culture and English language.

The princess had accompanied her parents on a two-week trip to the Netherlands in 2006 when she was four years old, but this would be her first extended trip overseas alone.

Aiko decided on the trip as her parents want their daughter to have experiences, the broadcaster said.

Naruhito participated in a home-stay (family accommodation) program in Australia in 1974 during high school.

The 18-day Eton program is an English language and culture course for Japanese students and has capacity for 320 learners, according to the institutionís data.

The program offers about 50 hours of English lessons to develop communication skills and understand British life, and includes visits to emblematic places such as the Museum of London, Windsor Castle and the University of Oxford.
