[Japan] Princess Aiko goes home from school on foot for first time this year

Princess Aiko, daughter of Crown Prince Naruhito and Crown Princess Masako, went home from school on foot with her mother on Sept. 24, the first time she has done so since becoming a third grader at Gakushuin Elementary School in Tokyo.

Aiko, 8, arrived at school with her mother by car as usual, and at the end of the day walked the few hundred meters home with her mother.

Earlier in the year, the Imperial Household Agency announced that Princess Aiko was not able to go to school due to a "strong sense of uneasiness."
