Japan Advertizer No. 9.798 April 19, 1922
  STUDENTS OF TOKYO GREET ROYAL GUEST
       ------------------
    Thousands Give Prince of Wales Noisy,
    Demonstrative Reception at Hibiya Park
       ------------------
       VISITOR IS PLEASED
       ------------------
     Asks to Meet Student Committee --
   Is Greatly Interested in Athletic Contests Staged
       ------------------
  "Arigato de Gozaimasu!"
  This Japanese phrase, pronounced clearly and forcefully by the heir to the Throne of Great Britain, was the signal for a most enthusiastic and demonstrative banzaiing and waving of flags by some 20,000 students, boys and girls, in Hibiya Park yesterday afternoon.
  The Prince of Wales for a very crowded half hour was the guest of the students of all the normal schools, colleges and universities in Tokyo. The students, in long narrow lanes, were massed in a big square in front of an attractive pavilion built at the edge of the shrubbery facing the big gravel open space in the park. At the head of each column of students was a placard giving the name of the school or college in both English and Japanese, the English for the distingushed guest and his suite and the Japanese on the reverse side for the students to find their places by.
  The Prince made an address from the pavilion and was
 - 第39巻 p.8 -ページ画像 
able to reach with his voice representatives of every school.
  The students had arrived early in the afternoon and were arranged according to schools when the Prince arrived by motor at a little before 4:30 o'clock. As the big red motor car swung into the park His Royal Highness was given a noisy demonstrative reception. The file of half a dozen cars made the round of the big assembly to the pavilion, the Prince and his suite then ascending to the platform. There again he received enthusiastic cheers from the admiring young people, and again as before rewarded them with a smile and frequent salutes.
         Prince Faces Inspiring Sight
  Standing on the platform, his slender figure in the closely fitting naval uniform was clearly outlined against the white background so that the thousands of students had a good view of their guest; and in turn the Prince himself faced an inspiring sight--the immense gathering of students, all cheering lustily and waving small British flags with the word "Welcome" written on them, and over the whole gathering long streaming ropes of flags extended from the tops of two tall poles much as big ocean liners or battleships are dressed.
  As the Prince arrived on the platform and sureveyed the gathering, the band struck up "God Save the King" and he saluted until it was finished. Baron Sakatani, chairman of the committee for the 70,000 students whose welcome was being given in the park yesterday, greeted the Prince and delivered the address of welcome.
  At the end of the address the Royal guest bowed in recognition and immediately stepped forward to deliver in a strong voice his response, expressing his sincere thanks for the reception he had received and his pleasure "to meet those of my own age." "The welcome given me today by so many of the rising generation of Japan is an event in my visit that I shall never forget," he declared, and in conclusion expressed the wish "that your future careers may not only bring you individual success and happiness, but prove of real and lasting benefit to the land in which you dwell."
  Six students, a special presentation committee which had stood in a small row directly in front of the platform, ascended the pure white steps and presented the Prince with two plain wooden boxes, one of which contained the address which Baron Sakatani had read and the other the complete list of the 70,000 students who were represented by those present. The Prince touched the boxes and acknowledged the gifts briefly.
        Student Committee Presented
 - 第39巻 p.9 -ページ画像 
  The band, which was in another pavilion about 100 yards from the one the Prince occupied, played the "Kimigayo, " and the Prince of Wales was the first on the platform to bring his hand to salute. After the completion of the anthem he expressed the wish to have the members of the students' committee presented to him. They again ascended the steps, and the Prince shook hands with each cordially, the small group of students in their dark blue school suits mixing for a few minutes with the uniformed officers on the platform. Then another wild demonstration, and the Prince and his suite went to their waiting motors and were taken to another place in the park to see an exhibition of fencing and wrestling.
  This exhibition the Royal visitor seemed to thoroughly enjoy, smiling, watching first one portion of the field and then another and frequently asking for information about something he had seen.
  Two fields, each containing between 150 and 200 students, were immediately in front of platform erected for the Royal party. On the one to the left the fencing ("Kendo") was held and on the right 100 pairs of youths were exhibiting Japan's art of Judo. The fencing was the ancient Japanese sport now practised for exercise in most of the universities of the Empire, partaking of the nature of the jousting tournaments of feudal Europe. Sides were lined up, the youths dressed in padded helmets, heavy wire masks, breast plates and padded gloves and armed with bamboo clubs four or five feet long.
  The signal was given and with shouts the sides rushed at each other and entered into fierce combat, fencing and clubbing each other unmercifully.
  Some bruised shoulders and arms and a few well bumped heads must have been among the results of the exhibition. When the fight seemed to have been won by one side or the other, drums were beat and new contestants entered into a new engagement, four sections thus presenting a continuous and lively sight.
  The Judo men were dressed in loosely fitting, white clothes, with black belts around their waists. They were on a field of mats, and they engaged in individual encounters, demonstrating all the tricks and holds of Japanese native wrestling and constantly throwing each other with thuds on the mats.
  The individual encounters or matches were quick and short, for as soon as a man got his hold he immediately threw his opponent violently. After some minutes at a signal all went to the carpet and demonstrated the follow holds by which
 - 第39巻 p.10 -ページ画像 
 initial victories of throwing the opponent should be followed up on the floor.
       Great Ovation on Departure
  The Prince was given ovation after ovation as he left the sports pavilion, entered his motor car and left the park, and he showed his pleasure at the cheering and flag waving by friendly smiles and salutes.
  The whole reception and exhibition was planned, arranged and carried out by students. It was a student function throughout and was a tribute to the abilities and initiative of Japanese students both in the way it was planned and in its execution. The pavilions and arrangements were all designed by students; student committeemen instead of police were in active charge; a student band of 120 pieces creditably furnished the music; students gave the wrestling and fencing exhibitions, and students presented the gifts. They were just students, and they tried in no way, by assumption of too much authority, by dress or otherwise to make it appear as if they were anything else. Courteous but firm, they discharged efficiently the duties ordinarily performed by police. A foreign professor in his eagerness to witness some little scene stepped too far out of the ranks; a student courteously asked him to get back into ranks, and many other details demonstrated the efficiency and courtesy of the student management.
  After the Prince had left the big crowd dispersed, but a large portion of it gathered again around the band stand and enjoyed a concert by the student band.
  In the evening another large student crowd gathered in the park to see motion pictures of the Prince of Wales in Tokyo.
         Baron Sakatani Speaks
  The address Baron Sakatani delivered in welcoming the Royal guest said:
  "Your Royal Highness the Prince of Wales:
  "Your Highness has arrived safely in our country after a long journey. We, who for a long time have pictured your glorious countenance to ourselves and loved and revered you, are exceedingly rejoiced.
  "Moreover, we have no word to express our gratitude for your kind presence at this welcome meeting to-day.
  "When our Imperial Highness the Crown Prince visited your country, you personally guided and entertained him. We can never forget that, and feeling deep emotion especially at this occasion, we respectfully express our gratitude.
  "It seems that the post-bellum world has seen a dawn of
 - 第39巻 p.11 -ページ画像 
 universal peace and that there is a trend to develop a new and better civilization.
  "At this very moment we fortunately welcome Your Highness, young and noble, and on whose shoulders the future of Great Britain rests, we cannot help feeling in high spirits.
  "The world knows that Your Highness, wise and glorious, has always exerted yourself for the prosperity of your country and the happiness of the human race.
  "We, the students of Japan, especially expect much from your youth, vigor and wisdom, for the spirit of youth and vitality in new life are indispensable factors in every country and at all times, and we ardently wish for your best health and great success.
  "We are mere students, and, being poorly equipped both intellectually and financially are afraid that there may be some serious faults in our manner of welcoming you. We believe, however, our sincerity does not fall behind that of any one else and beg that Your Highness would approve our genuine inmost feelings toward you."
        His Royal Highness Replies
  Replying the Prince of Wales said to thronged park:
  "I greatly appreciate the words in which the President of the Japanese Students Association has greeted me on your behalf, and I thank you sincerely for the manner in which you have received me here this afternoon.
  "It is always a great pleasure to me to meet those of my own age, and the welcome given me to-day by so many of the rising generation of Japan is an event in my visit that I shall never forget.
  "In your hands you hold the future as a book wherein you can write what you will; it is to your determination, industry and patriotism that Japan will look in the years that lie ahead. I feel sure that you will follow the worthy example of your predecessors, who have brought this Island Empire to its present high position in the world, and my most earnest wish is that your future careers may not only bring you individual success and happiness but prove of real and lasting beneft to the land in which you dwell."
