Crown Prince Akishino and his wife, Crown Princess Kiko, left Japan on Thursday for a tour of Poland and Finland where they will join in celebrations marking the centenary of Japan establishing ties with the two European countries.

The couple’s tour is the first overseas trip by members of the imperial family since the May 1 ascension of Emperor Naruhito, the elder brother of the crown prince. It is also the couple’s first official visit to the two countries.
