Did you read anything on it that gives us a closer glimpse of the man behind the book?

Not really, except that he managed to cram an awful lot of work and play into his time in England! I think the book was fairly carefully stage managed to give the impression of a well-meaning and earnest young prince expanding his horizons without going off the rails. He did seem to enjoy his food and drink; it doesn't sound as though there were many pubs he didn't visit! The translation is interesting because it isn't really fluent and eloquent English; you can tell that it's a foreigner speaking.

I'm not sure how interested people would be in the book if they weren't familiar with Britain and especially Oxford. I've always liked reading about the Thames so I enjoyed the book a lot. It interesting that he chose to study history when there's such a tradition of studying zoology in the imperial family.

In other words, Elspeth, Prince Naruhito kind of wrote a Fodor's Travel guide?

Sort of. He spends a chapter talking about his research and a chapter talking about the history of the university and a chapter about his life as a graduate student; he also talks about the people he met (although the other students aren't identified by their full names) and the trips he took to other parts of the UK and Europe. There almost seemed too much in there for a person to do in two years!

Elspeth, I think I'll wait for the movie because that book will put me to sleep. Speaking of which, time for me to do just that. See ya' all tomorrow for coffee and more forum chat...

Prince Naruhito attended the 20th IUBMB International Congress of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and 11th FAOBMB Congress in Kyoto on June 18, 2006.

Address by His Imperial Highness The Crown Prince on the Occasion of the Opening Ceremony of the 20th IUBMB International Congress of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and 11th FAOBMB Congress
Sunday, June 18, 2006
Kyoto International Conference Hall

Distinguished participants,
Ladies and gentlemen,
 I am pleased that the 20th IUBMB International Congress of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and the 11th FAOBMB Congress is being held here, with the participation of so many scientists from all over the world.
 39 years ago, in Tokyo, this Congress was convened for the first time in Japan. Since then, the life sciences have made remarkable developments, and we live now in the early 21st century when dramatic advances in the life sciences may herald a new era for mankind. I feel very happy that Japan is again hosting this Congress of worldwide importance, this time in Kyoto, with the theme "Life: Molecular Integration & Biological Diversity."
 It is said that we are now in the midst of the golden age of the life sciences. The human genome, the very blueprint of a human body, has been decoded, and scientists, through their efforts, will eventually translate this genomic information into a scenario for the drama of life. It is extremely interesting how genome research will reveal the history of life.
 At the same time, the life sciences are also closely linked to the issues of medical treatment of serious diseases such as leukemia and AIDS and assuring safety of food supply, which are presently confronting us and affecting our daily life. It is no exaggeration to say that this area of science will profoundly influence the future of mankind. In this context, I am very happy to see so many young scientists participating in this Congress.  Finally, I wish to express the hope that this Congress will produce fruitful results and contribute to the prosperity and welfare of mankind.

AT the moment it is the festival of O-Bon, the honouring of your ancestors. Naruhito is doing what many Japanese are doing now, returning to their hometowns or areas and paying homage to their deceased family members. O-Bon is a national day ( public holiday, there's a week's holiday around O-Bon)
