Many Happy returns. I wonder what Prince Hisahito received from his Father Crown Prince Akishino?

It wasn't a bicycle.....Something to do with photography to hasten a guess?

Only my 14th I got a lecture from Mother.

On my 14th, I got a lecture from my grandpa on the "birds and the bees" (his way) while playing poker. Happy Birthday to him.

I saw the video on TV, sound was down, thought he was turning 12 from the look of him.

Poor little lad. Got his whole life mapped out for him from Day 1.

No 'When I grow up I'm going to be a footballer/baker/bricklayer' dreams for him.

I hope he gets some pleasure out of taking pictures.

Looks like a nice father and son outing. For me it has been a while since I saw a camera!

A rightwing ideology.

Prince Akishino is a hardcore rightwinger unlike pacifists Emperor Akihito and Naruhito.

When Prince Akishino becomes the Emperor after the passing of his elder brother, he may be the first Japanese emperor to visit Yasukuni and bow before the name plates of Tojo Hideki ever since Emperor Hirohito stopped visiting the Yasukuni when the 14 A-class war-criminals were enshrined and Emperor Akihito and Naruhito followed the tradition.

Visit maybe, but bow? Being a right-winger as you say, wouldn't he consider it below him for a god to bow before mortals?

We are fortunate young prince.

It is good to have your own vision. It is better to share it with others.

Learn from the wisdom and experience of your father and cherish the kindness and patience of your mother.
