Prince Akishino and Princess Kiko visit Hawaii

《 HONOLULU (AP) - Prince Akishino, the second son of Japan's Emperor Akihito, and his wife, Princess Kiko, are visiting Hawaii for the first time.
The Japanese royal couple is on Oahu this week as part of a yearlong celebration for the 150th anniversary of the first Japanese immigrants arriving in Hawaii.

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.

Finally, I hope that the eruption of Kilauea volcano subsides quickly.
I would like to convey my most heartfelt sympathy to the sufferers from the eruption.
