Thank you very much, Prince Akishino and princess Kiko.
Thank you very much to everyone in Hawaii. 🙇
By the way, unfortunately in Japan as usual
there are few reports of Prince and Princess Akishino's visit to Hawaii.
I would like to convey my most heartfelt sympathy to the sufferers from the eruption.
