On August 8th, CP Naruhito attended the 18th crystal growth international conference opening ceremony at the Nagoya Congress Center. The event is the only international conference to discuss crystal growth technology usage, such as semiconductors, and it was held in Japan for the first time in 15 years. The Crown Prince gave a speech in English and listened to a special keynote lecture by Professor Isamu Akasaki, who shared the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2014.

In the afternoon, he visited Atsuta Shrine and then arrived at Nagoya Station around 3:15pm, immediately after Emperor Akihito's speech, to return to Tokyo.

It is just in the agenda what the Crown Prince will do at that day and people are flocking near the venues to see a glimpse from the royal. This happens in other monarchies too. To me this just looks like people walking on the street and suddenly and seeing a whole motorcade coming, so all the smartphones went out to film it. Apart from that enthusiast group, the rest of the street seem totally unaware of a VIP passing the street.

Yes, I expected crowds near the train stations and venues. However, Kariya was a little surprising to me because it's between Nagoya and Anjo. From Facebook posts, there were definitely local or IHA staff ahead gathering crowds and handing out flags at various locations along the route.

One fan noted Atsuta Shrine is the traditional repository for the sword Kusanagi no Tsurugi, one of the Three Sacred Treasures of Japan, which are only seen by the Emperor and certain priests at enthronement ceremonies.

Anyway, more news clips of CP Naruhito's Aichi Prefecture visit and return to Tokyo.

Japan's Crown Prince Naruhito an unlikely critic of the monarchy - The Straits Times
Quote:
Japan's Crown Prince Naruhito may be heir to one of the world's oldest monarchies, but he is not shy about knocking the institution he represents or his country's warring past.

The 56-year-old has levelled subtle yet unprecedented criticism at the monarchy, blaming the rigid lifestyle imposed on royals for a decade of stress-related illness suffered by his wife, who was once a high-flying diplomat.

And, like his popular father Akihito, the heir apparent has warned that Japan must not downplay its early 20th-century militarism and actions in World War II - remarks seen as a rebuke to the nationalist stance of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
