Japanese Prince Hisahito, 2nd in Line to Throne, Turns 13

   Tokyo, Sept. 6 (Jiji Press)--Japanese Prince Hisahito, second in line to the Imperial throne, turned 13 on Friday.
   The third child and only son of Crown Prince Akishino and Crown Princess Kiko has never missed a day at Ochanomizu University Junior High School in Tokyo's Bunkyo Ward since he entered the school in April.
   He has been broadening his mind such as through traveling to Bhutan, meeting with "mame kisha," or children experiencing the job of a journalist, and having other first experiences.
   According to the Imperial Household Agency, Prince Hisahito reached a goal in a 50-meter obstacle race without knocking over hurdles during the school athletic meet in June. He also took part in a team race.
   In July, he met with some 60 mame kisha students from elementary and junior high schools in the southernmost Japan prefecture of Okinawa and the northernmost prefecture of Hokkaido. It was the first time for the prince to interact with such children.
