LIMA — Princess Kako, the second daughter of Crown Prince Akishino and Crown Princess Kiko, visited a school established by Japanese Peruvians in Lima on Wednesday morning as part of her official visit to Peru.
Founded in 1971, Colegio La Union has a curriculum that includes Japanese language classes and lectures on Japanese culture. Currently, the school is attended by about 1,200 students of elementary and junior high school age. About 60% of them are of Japanese descent.
The princess observed a Japanese language class of second-year elementary school students. When she asked the students, “What food do you like?” the children excitedly raised their hands and answered.
Princess Kako later attended a welcome event at the school. Students in colorful costumes danced for her, and she clapped enthusiastically.
