On their first day, the couple began their visit attending a seminar and speaking to children who have experienced bullying at the Kyu Asakura House in Tokyo. Crown Princess Mary has worked for many years against bullying with the Mary Foundation, creating programs like Fri For Mobberi.
Unfortunately, bullying, or Ijime as it’s called in Japanese, is a big problem in Japan — Princess Aiko, the daughter of Crown Prince Naruhito and Crown Princess Masako, has experienced it first hand.
