Tanjoubi omedetou!

Look who's one! The prince of Japan!

His birth came amidst a time in Japan where it was uncertain whether the next heir to the Chrysanthemum throne would be a man, where as much of the country was hoping it would be.
As the first male heir in over forty years, he is continuing the tradition that men tend to be the royal figurehead of the island nation.

Before his birth lengthy discussions were held to determine if it would be right for a female to take the throne, he seems to have settled this issue, for now.

From the BBC article:

Prince Hisahito is the son of Prince Akishino, the emperor's younger son. The little boy has two older sisters, Princess Mako and Princess Kako.

"His Highness Prince Hisahito is walking with support and crawling on stairs, and his activity has grown vigorous particularly in the past month," the agency said in a statement.
"He likes picture books and turns the pages himself," it said.

Happy birthday, Prince!
I got you baby Air Jordans! XD
