Prince Akishino, the younger son of Emperor Akihito, attended a gathering with his family in Tokyo on Monday to commemorate the Battle of Okinawa 70 years ago and mourn its victims.

His wife, Princess Kiko, and two of their children, Princess Kako and Prince Hisahito, also attended the event. They heard Rieko Tamaki, who at 10 years old survived the battle, talk about how she gradually lost members of her family during the war.
