Paris- Japanese Crown Prince Naruhito spent time with children at a facility for the disabled in Paris on Tuesday during his official visit to France.

At the facility, Les Amis de Karen, the Crown Prince asked children what they like to do for fun. With a smile, he danced with a seven-year-old girl who said she likes dancing.

The facility, established in 1968 for young people with multiple disabilities, currently has 36 residents.

Later on Tuesday at the official residence of the Japanese ambassador to France, Crown Prince Naruhito met with French people connected with Japan and representatives of Japanese residents in France.

Among invited guests from a variety of fields was prominent patissier Pierre Herme.

The Crown Prince had one-on-one conversations with participants about their recent activities and the Japan-France relationship. Jiji Press
