Off to school

Prince Hisahito, 6, accompanied by his parents Prince Akishino and Princess Kiko, arrives at Ochanomizu University Elementary School for his entrance ceremony in Tokyo on Sunday. It is the first time since World War II that a child in the imperial family has attended a school other than Gakushuin.

    Poor kid! He is probably just wishing people would leave him be, at least in school. And the school as well, they will quite a bit of unwanted scrutiny!

    must be tough for the kid going to school, wonder how he is treated... maybe too young for kids to know what it all means.

    He's a delicate-looking little fellow isn't he.

    I'm very glad he doesn't have to lag one of those rucksacks around. Very hard on the back.

    Good luck laddie!

    Yes, that's what was meant. However, "randoseru" is, in fact a gairaigo, from the dutch word for backpack, "ransel."
