Japanese Princess Graduates Junior High School despite Ill Health

TOKYO – Japan’s Princess Aiko, the only child of Crown Prince Naruhito and Princess Masako, graduated junior high school on Wednesday in Tokyo, overcoming the various problems that affected her school life, including ill health.

On arriving at the Gakushuin Girls’ Junior High School for the graduation ceremony, the 15-year-old granddaughter of Akihito told reporters she made many good friends and enjoyed her three years of high school, according to Kyodo news agency.

Aiko, who was accompanied by her parents, smilingly posed at the gates of the school.

Health problems, including fatigue and weakness, had kept her away from school for a month last year.

She also missed several classes in her elementary school between 2010-2011 and had to be finally accompanied by her mother, after she complained of rude behavior by some of her classmates.

From April, beginning of the scholastic year in Japan, Aiko will begin classes at the Gakushuin Girls’ Senior High School.

For her graduation, the princess penned an essay on world peace for her class yearbook, in which she wrote about a school trip to the Peace Memorial Park at Hiroshima, where the United States had dropped an atomic bomb in 1945, which she said, changed her outlook “drastically.”
