It includes part of the duties, the other part is performed by shinto priests from the Imperial family personal shrine. The Crown Prince has not been inaugurated as a monarch to perform some of the rituals yet.

Oh, you have no idea, how exciting it was! And so unexpected.
There was someone else (The Crown Prince's aide, I suppose) in the auto. That man was hiding himself and letting us to see the Kotaishi (the heir). It was awesome!

There's really "something in the air" when there's a royal visit. It's hard to explain, but it's very exciting stuff.

Japan looks to future with earnest crown prince | Reuters
[...]
Naruhito's prominence while his 77-year-old father recovers from what court officials say is a mild case of pneumonia has given Japan a fresh look at the scholarly, unassuming man who likes animals and watching sumo wrestling with his 9-year-old daughter, Aiko.
Whereas Emperor Akihito had a relatively clear role to play when he ascended the Chrysanthemum throne, trying to heal the wounds of a war waged across Asia in the name of his father, Emperor Hirohito, Naruhito, 51, may find it harder to forge a path of his own.
And Naruhito may also have to carve out a role largely on his own.

Crown Prince cancels France visit

Quote:
Crown Prince Naruhito has canceled a plan to visit France this month for the World Water Forum to be held in Marseille, the Imperial Household Agency said Monday.

The Crown Prince will concentrate on covering Emperor Akihito's affairs of state [...]

A researcher on water transportation systems and water-related issues, the Crown Prince planned to give a speech on water-related disasters in connection with last March's earthquake and tsunami in northeastern Japan [...]
The Japan Times

I am sure that the crown prince is very sorry that he will be unable to attend the World Water Forum. He has said oftentimes that he has water issues very much at heart, and I am sure that he has been looking forward especially to maybe help other countries by sharing the horrible experience made by his nation. But of course, at present it is most important for Prince Naruhito to take over for his father, so the emperor will get the chance to rest and know that his duties are being taken good care of.

I'm sure other members of the family could fill in for the Emperor, as far as fulfilling his duties.

I think it is more likely fears for his father's health that keep the Crown Prince from leaving his country at this time.

Considering that the crown prince – unlike us - probably already knew that there were complications with his father´s recovery process when he canceled the trip to France, I suppose you are right. Concerns for his father´s health certainly played a role.
But while other members of the IF could, of course, “technically” fill in for the emperor, imo it is also important that it is the first duty of the crown prince to do that. I think that one of the reasons why the emperor has difficulties to “let go” is that he is afraid that nobody will be able to do things as well as he. That the crown prince cancels a trip that he had set his heart upon in order to step in for the emperor, is imo also a message to his father: “Don´t worry, I know my duties and I will always put them first. Relax.”

Quote:
Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra met Japanese Crown Prince Naruhito yesterday and wished his father Emperor Akihito, who underwent heart bypass surgery last month, a speedy recovery.

The prince thanked Ms Yingluck for her concern and for her planned visit to a tsunami-hit city in northeast Japan, the Imperial Household Agency said.

Lytvyn invites Japan’s Crown Prince Naruhito to visit Ukraine

Quote:
During a meeting I’ve invited Crown Prince to visit Ukraine. He said that he’ll do with pleasure when a decision is made under a procedure existing in Japan,” Lytvyn told reporters on March 9 after a meeting with Crown Prince Naruhito.

The speaker said that a problem that unites Ukraine and Japan – the issue of Chornobyl and Fukushima – and cooperation in the area were discussed at the meeting.

Lytvyn said that another issue for discussion was the issue of how Ukraine ensures safe conditions for living. In addition, Crown Prince was interested in provision of high-quality water in Ukraine.
