FUKUSHIMA -- Crown Prince Naruhito and Crown Princess Masako visited a high school and a tomato farm in Fukushima Prefecture on Oct. 8, as the area still struggles from the aftermath of the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant disaster.
At the Futaba Future School in the town of Hirono, which was inaugurated this past spring, a student who lives in a school dormitory after he was forced from his home due to the nuclear disaster, told the couple, "I want to become a doctor in the future so that I can return the favor to my hometown." In response, the Crown Prince said, "It is too bad you cannot return to your hometown."
The couple also visited Tomato Land Iwaki, an agricultural corporation in the city of Iwaki, the same day. The farm has conducted voluntary tests on its products for radioactive materials.
