Crown Prince Naruhito on Friday visited the Tokyo Stock Exchange in the Kabutocho financial district for the first time.
The Crown Prince toured TSE Arrows, the site of the former TSE trading floor, which was converted into an information center in 2000. TSE Arrows staff monitor online trading.
The Crown Prince, the elder son of Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko, was briefed by TSE President Takuo Tsurushima as he experienced a mock trading session using a personal computer.
The Crown Prince has been invited to attend the General Assembly of the World Federation of Exchanges in Tokyo in October. The Paris-based federation is an organization of 56 bourses in 45 countries and territories.
The TSE invited the Crown Prince to TSE Arrows to allow him to have a better understanding of stock trading, TSE officials said.
