Crown Prince Naruhito will make an eight-day official visit to Mongolia from July 10 to commemorate the 35th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties, according to the itinerary endorsed Friday at a Cabinet meeting.

But his wife, Crown Princess Masako, will not accompany him due to health reasons.

Crown Prince Naruhito underwent endoscopic surgery last week to remove a benign polyp in his duodenum.
